High-performance in an affordable package, designed to keep your research on budget.

Work-related musculoskeletal disorders are a world problem, concerning health, social and economics sectors. In fact, the high prevalence of such disorders in the spine and upper limbs have been documented by several studies associated with to a higher number of work absences and dissatisfaction, which leads to significant social and economic costs.

With this in mind, this kit was designed to objectively track and measure work-related stress on workers conducting physical work processes by providing reliable data for ergonomists to detect, prevent, and/or improve high-risk work activates. This kit aims to help decrease and prevent the amount of work-related musculoskeletal disorders.

ergoplux Researcher uses the OpenSignals (r)evolution software and the Muscle Load Analysis software add-on to track the muscular stress of workers by acquiring electromyography signals (up to 8 sensors simultaneously) and by analyzing the muscle contraction intensities over time. The Electromyography (EMG) Analysis add-on allows extracting statistical information from the acquired signals to evaluate the stress workers are exposed to in further detail. Additionally, the Video Synchronization add-on allows the users to record videos of the workers during the signal acquisition sessions to visualize all signals synchronously with the recorded video for post-acquisition analysis purposes (e.g. movement analysis).

  • 1x Wireless 8-channel hub (see specs below)
  • 8x Professional EMG sensors
