Kurzbeschreibung (Abstract)

Musculoskeletal issues are a common problem in work life. Mental issues are rising. Employees are often not aware of the ergonomic aspects of their work, not knowing when a certain action they perform is ergonomically unhealthy. A possibility to prevent that is to assess ergonomic parameters during work and give feedback, so that the employees can learn and improve. Common systems for ergonomic assessments are often only snapshots and give no direct feedback. Therefore, this paper presents the user centered design process (UCDP) of a real-time feedback solution for ergonomic parameters that gives employees direct feedback by using the built in sensors of everyday-life technology like smartphones, smartwatches and activity trackers to monitor different parameters of ergonomics at work and show possible improvements. A corresponding App was developed as digital interactive prototype. The UCDP thereby featured several iterations with user studies and expert evaluations to ensure high user friendliness.
