The Professional Series Laptop Workstation from Fellowes has received an Ergonomics Excellence Award from FIRA International. The Ergonomics Excellence Award recognises companies who design and manufacture ergonomically outstanding products, especially those that meet and generally exceed the requirements of British and European standards.
The FIRA International team found the workstation to have key ergonomic features, a standout one being its varied height adjustment functionality. With nine different height variations, the workstation enables users to reach an ideal height setting of their laptop screen to reduce flexion and protraction of the head and neck. It also includes a document holder at the front of the product to encourage in-line working negating the need for users to look down at their desk or elsewhere on their workstation. The product’s cable management USB hub system helps minimises clutter, resulting in a clearer desk.
Louise Shipley, European Business Team Manager for Workspace Management/ Furniture at Fellowes said, “we are very pleased to see our Professional Series Laptop Workstation receive the FIRA Ergonomics Excellence Award. Our products are designed and developed around exactly what people need to work better and get the best out of their day. This award reflects how workspace ergonomics is becoming more of a priority and a preventative measure for common work-related ailments, for both – employees and employers.”
FIRA International also confirmed that the workstation met the applicable requirements of BS EN ISO 9241-5:1999 Ergonomic requirements for office work with visual display terminals (VDTs). Workstation layout and postural requirements.
