Ergonomics and Biomechanics Products


We are continuing our development of Version 6. We are currently updating our Alpha version and will contact all our customers on annual maintenance when the next Alpha version will be available for testing and to provide feedback. Our customers on maintenance can wait for the Beta version or the commercial release of this version.

Version 6 will include a new balance feature, more databases and other updates. In ErgoTools we have added the Hand Strength MAE (Maximum Acceptable Efforts) and AFF (Arm Force Field) methods. Additional databases and ROM data have been added to the child module.
