This achievement is further evidence of the leading role that the Solingen-based company plays in the development of advanced ergonomic products. The item Work Bench System is the first on the market to satisfy the stringent medical certification criteria laid down by the Campaign for Healthy Backs. This means it has been proven to help prevent potential health complaints and promote the wellbeing of employees in the workplace.
Health is a top priority at item – wide-ranging research for back-friendly working practices
Optimum ergonomics and, in particular, back-friendly product design are key objectives of development work at item, which always takes into account the latest medical findings. As a result, item work bench systems offer ongoing support in helping users avoid back problems. What’s more, products that are designed to be back-friendly are equally as important and supportive for users who already suffer from musculoskeletal complaints.
The AGR seal – independent and consumer-oriented
Products that carry the AGR seal have proven their back-friendly design to an independent committee of experts with backgrounds in a range of medical disciplines. The aim of the AGR seal – which has been awarded a "very good" rating by German consumer magazine "ÖKO-TEST" – is to help consumers make an objective decision when buying ergonomic products.
