For year’s Microscopes have been a part of the laboratory environment until we started to realize that generations of laboratory technicians working with microscopes may develop discomfort or even lasting injuries.
After many years of microscope work researchers and technicians may develop Repetitive Strain Injuries and/or Repetitive Stress Injuries or different specific work- related Musculoskeletal Disorders (MSD). MSDs are medical conditions affecting the muscles, nerves, tendons, ligaments, joints, cartilage, and/or spinal discs. From quite common tendonitis (an inflammation of the tendon), carpal tunnel syndrome, ganglion cysts, to lower back pain. Beside that, wrong posture and head position more then 10-15 degrees below a horizontal plane may give us a real pain in the neck and possibly a spinal disc injury.
If we compare the suffering, financial lost to patient and employer, real loses in dollars related to sick leaves, with investment of about one hundred dollars, it only makes sense to equip your microscope work stations with “Arm Support” kit.
With several adjustment options you can customize each of the Arm Supports up to your microscope height requirements. In some instances customers prefer to have each Support of different height for best reach of microscope controls. The Front clamps will fit on benches with front ledge up to 1.5" thick. The ledge overlap should be 2" or more in depth.
* Arm Supports come in different colors and shapes, but for your installation you should choose from our “Order form” the bench thickness applicable to your work area.
