NovaLink parametric contract furniture®™ Series 7.5™ meets & exceeds European and North American Ergonomic / Human Factor Design Standards.
The executive mandate for the development of NovaLink's Series 7.0 and subsequently Series 7.5 Consoles, stressed the need for enhanced interactive communications, accommodation of larger monitors and touch screens and, compliance with 'all' ergonomic and access standards.
Optimal Performance Consultants (OPC) was engaged by the NovaLink Team as a proven specialist in Ergonomic/Human Factor Design (E/HFD) with 30+ years of professional experience and substantial accumulated data. OPC was requested to assess and verify new design concepts and prototypes for easy use and adjustments by persons of all abilities and anthropometrics, including aging baby boomers, males and females of varying sizes and abilities, and by persons in wheelchairs or other mobility devices.
Per OPC: "By focusing on how E/HFD principles, methodology and techniques improve console and workstation design, NovaLink Customers will lower corporate risk in relation to design flaws, enhance the built environment to measurably leverage the talent of all employees and to maximize human performance in the workplace."
