Usability Comprehensive usability tests as well as comfort studies carried out for the KST 19 control unit in the course of the study confirmed the results of the software-based assessments. The results were compared to the requirements of national and international standards. The posture and ergonomics values were compared to the data from the ISO 11226 and DIN EN 1005-4 standards. Usability and comfort Different postures while sitting or standing in specific scenarios (unobstructed view, looking down, looking up) were tested using a selected subject group consisting of women and men of all ages...

Ergonomics meets Control Technology Seat Comfort For the best seat comfort, maximum pressure values in the range from 2 to 7 kPa are recommended for the area of the upper and lower back as well as the area of the upper thigh. These values could be scientifically proven for short-term as well as long-term use during the tests conducted on the KST 19 control unit. Pressure distribution measurements To assess the seat comfort, an analysis of the measured pressure values was carried out in addition to the subjective evaluation through the subject interviews. This method is also used in the automotive...

Strain on the Muscles With the correct adjustment of the seat and the control panels, the shoulder and neck muscles will not be stressed any more than when doing normal work on a personal computer. If the operator also switches between seated and standing operating positions on the control unit there will be an additional positive effect. Surface electromyography By means of SEMG measurements, the strain on the muscles of the shoulder and neck areas as well as in the area of the lumbar spine were determined in different working positions. The results show that especially in the area of the lumbar...
