Visual Ergonomics 

Visual factors and productivity levels 

One only has to look around to see how technology is being used by young and old. Movies in 3D. Smart phone technology. Interactive devices for purchasing train tickets or car parking vouchers. It seems that each day a new type of device is invented with the promise that it will make our lives easier or improve our access to knowledge.

Ergoport's Sponsorship of the Seminar on Vision, Lighting and Computers in the Modern Office Environment

Tasmanian Association of Vocational Rehabilitation Providers 

Many thanks to Maree Webber for her kind words below along with thanks to the Tasmanian Association of Vocational Rehabilitation Providers and to the presenter Dr Jennifer Long (pictured), for a great Seminar and for sharing important knowledge on visual ergonomics.
Dr Jennifer Long

"On behalf of the Tasmanian Association of Vocational Rehabilitation Providers I am writing to thank you  and the Ergoport team for your sponsorship of our Seminar on Vision, Lighting and Computers in the Modern Office Environment last Friday 4 July .
 
Your products were of interest to all who attended; and in particular the task lighting should have captured attendee’s attention , as the presenter Dr Jennifer Long mentioned task lighting several times in the context of  meeting individual user needs in a large generically lit office.  She also talked about design/layout of desking in relation to  lighting issues, and mentioned adjustable monitor arms  in relation to users  adjusting the screen(s) to their needs."  


Contact Us for information on how we can help sponsor your next ergonomics event.

Some of the products we provided for the seminar were: Humanscale Element Vision LED Lights, CBS Flo Monitor Arms, 3M Privacy Filters and a Microdesk document Holder.

  

Seeing comfortably and clearly is not only important for workplace computer displays.

For example: 

• Lighting is used in homes, entertainment and in retail environments. 
• Visual displays are used in cars, movie theatres and games. 
• Printed information is used for product labels, road signage and on household equipment.
• We use our eyes for leisure and sporting activities. 

There are many aspects of vision which are actively researched around the world, for example:

• Visual challenges for an ageing population
• Impact of technology use on children’s vision.
• Comfort and health effects of using 3D displays.

It is essential that research keeps pace with technology to ensure that we are able to comfortably and easily use new devices which are developed. Visual ergonomics research also has important applications in product development and research findings may be incorporated into national and international standards.
