The EGO story:  The EGO story The idea behind EGO: we can’t avoid sitting, so let us make chairs which really help the user. We aren’t made to sit still: movement and variation are essential for creativity and wellbeing. EGO provides movement and variation through the Labofa Action System. …also when seated. Labofa Action System:  Labofa Action System Advanced technology - the Action System: 1. Open, active sitting angle 2. Seat angle and back rest adjustment are independent. 3.

Ergonomics: investment and value:  Ergonomics: investment and value • MSDs cost EU employers billions of euros and are damaging the competitiveness of European industry. • They account for 40 to 50 per cent of all work-related ill-health and losses of 0.5 to 2 per cent of gross national product (GNP) every year. • The main cause of MSDs is poor ergonomic conditions Prevention is the only answer...
