Ergonomic Features

The integration of ergonomics in the design of these sorting frames maximises the efficiency of sorting and minimises workplace accidents. Detailed analysis of the causes of muscular injuries suffered by sorters (notably to the back) highlighted issues that are addressed by the ergonomic principles applied in the frames design.

The frame, modules and contoured work surface are designed to fit the natural sorting arc of the mail sorter so that the sorter can easily sort into all compartments without any stress or strain from twisting or bending.
