Realtime Ergonomics Analysis

The biomechanical measurement system INDUSTRIAL ATHLETE visualizes physical workload in real time and under real conditions. Common load types such as force, awkward posture and repetition can be identified for each body region and evaluated according to biomechanics and ergonomics criteria.

Body postures and joint forces measured by IMU sensors (XSENS) are graphically animated and correlated with activities performed using synchronized video recordings. This makes it possible to identify hidden health risks, evaluate the preventive effectiveness of ergonomic tools or aids (e.g. exoskeletons) and derive measures to avoid high musculoskeletal loads.

With its integrated data analysis and automated reports, the INDUSTRIAL ATHLETE enables fast and meaningful load assessments and ergonomic workplace design without the need for time-consuming procedures and human resources.

This opens a highly efficient way for companies to contribute specifically to the health, performance and motivation of their employees and to be able to offer attractive, healthy workplaces in the long term. Research institutes benefit from one of the most powerful and versatile measurement methods in ergonomics.

Biomechanics for Healthy Work

New chapter for practical engineering education at TH Rosenheim

In order to support practical teaching, the Faculty of Engineering at Rosenheim Technical University of Applied Sciences has set up four new laboratories where students can experience hands-on work. One highlight is the new laboratory for product development in medical technology, where students have the opportunity to experience the practical application of scalefit's motion-capture-based ergonomics analysis live on their own bodies. A short TV clip introduces the new labs.

scalefit and Movella XSENS - exclusive partnership to expand global ergonomics

scalefit and Movella, pioneers in ergonomics analysis and motion capture technology, are now united in a 𝗴𝗹𝗼𝗯𝗮𝗹 𝗽𝗮𝗿𝘁𝗻𝗲𝗿𝘀𝗵𝗶𝗽. This collaboration marks a significant milestone in making ergonomic solutions more accessible to companies, especially beyond the borders of Europe.

scalefit at the 13th Annual Conference of the DGfB

As a leading provider of biomechanical ergonomics solutions, scalefit is dedicated to musculoskeletal load analysis and human-centred workplace design for healthier and more productive environments.

Together with our partner Movella Health & Sports | Xsens, we combine the most reliable motion capture technology and biomechanical expertise to redefine ergonomic assessments worldwide.

scalefit at IIC 2023

The future of digital factory and workplace design at IIC 2023. This year's conference was all about continuity, covering topics from planning to virtual commissioning, training and production. scalefit showed live how the INDUSTRIAL ATHLETE makes a decisive contribution to the design of ergonomic workplaces already in the planning phase. Ergonomics analysis combined with ChatGPT based on-demand reports.

Movella awards scalefit as most impactful partner health & sports

At the Movella EMEA Partner Summit, held in Enschede (NL), scalefit presented the first AI-supported version of the ergonomics measurement system INDUSTRIAL ATHLETE and was promptly awarded. The ChatGPT-extension now automatically generates highly sophisticated result reports as well as individually adapted recommendations for ergonomic workplace design and MSD prevention - in real time, of course.

VerV Ergonomics Congress in Belgium

Have you seen this? A forward-looking VerV Congress 2022 in Affligem/Belgium, where visitors to the scalefit booth drew each other's attention to our real-time ergonomics analysis.

And our live workshop on back strain during lifting (with partner Attentia), stimulated exciting discussions about how height-adjustable work equipment (thanks to Hovmand A/S) can contribute to back relief e.g. in production, logistics and healthcare.

Back to the roots - scalefit's coming home

For us, a very special 12th Congress of the German Society for Biomechanics (DGfB) at the German Sport University Cologne, where the foundation of our company was laid. Many former colleagues, current and future partners as well as a wide range of participants from all fields of biomechanics tested our Xsens MoCap-based measurement system for ergonomics analyses in real time for 3 days.

scalefit at the GfA Autumn Congress 2022 in Leipzig

State-of-the-art lectures and a top-class exhibitor field provided an impressive framework for our interactive workshops. With the support of our partners Movella and Ottobock Bionic Exoskeletons, the audience became part of the working environment. The reduction of physical strain through the use of height-adjustable workstations and torso-supporting exoskeletons could be impressively visualized using the scalefit ergonomics analysis - in real time, of course.
