Creating an ergonomic environment is not just limited to new cabins. Merford also can provide crane operators with an improved ergonomic environment for existing cranes. This prevents physical stress and reduces absence due to illness. Merford achieves this goal by supplying a sound solution for the replacement market. An operator seat with a wide range of adjustment options has been developed for this target group. This enables an ergonomic sitting posture for a wide range of male and female body dimensions.
The best possible ergonomics in existing cabins as well
The ‘S’ in Ergoseat stands for ‘standing’. This is in contrast to the Ergoseat H, which is installed suspended in the cabin. The Ergoseat S can be installed on the floor of an operator cabin. This is why the cabin’s structure does not need to be able to accommodate a ceiling assembly. Yet the seat offers the benefit of various adjustment options and field of view, which makes the Ergoseat S extremely suitable as a replacement for existing operator seats.
The Ergoseat S makes it easy and comfortable for the operator to use the forearms as support and to operate the consoles with his/her hands. The load placed on the neck and back decreases significantly as a result of this feature, which enables the operator to be and continue to be efficient. The entire design of the Ergoseat S contributes to improved visibility from the operator cabin. Combined with the operator’s ergonomic sitting position, an efficient and safe crane is within reach.
