Back pain causes high direct and indirect costs in our health care system. The motivation and driving force for the forum Ergomechanics® is to maintain the working, but sedentary, population healthy. This dialogue and close collaboration connects the scientific disciplines with industry. Through the interactive exchange of different disciplines, such as ergonomics, biomechanics and psychology, novel ideas are generated, enabling the development by industry of innovative products to preserve a healthy population.
The Ergomechanics® Congress is a podium for displaying this transfer of knowledge: already two times well-respected scientists presented their latest findings on spine research as well as other expertises related to sitting. The respective presentations are published in a book.
