Introducing the Institute for Health and Ergonomics

The institute is based in Nuremberg and was founded in the mid-1990s. It originally started with courses for children, but now deals with almost everything that is important for healthy working.

Fun and entertainment are an important key to the sustainability of measures to improve occupational health. Through its initiatives and projects, the Institute actively supports companies in achieving their goals.

IGR Institut für Gesundheit und Ergonomie GmbH

The Institut für Gesundheit und Ergonomie GmbH, based in Nuremberg, has stood for health in the workplace and in everyday life since 1998. Through its initiatives and projects, the IGR supports companies, public authorities and private individuals in the ergonomic optimization of their workplaces.

One focus is the certification and development of ergonomic products and services. Other areas of activity include carrying out workplace analyses and workplace health promotion measures. The Innovation Award of Ergonomics, which is presented to companies for outstanding achievements, is held in high esteem. The IGR studies serve to investigate and prove the ergonomic effectiveness of products and solutions in theory and practice. The portfolio is rounded off by a wide range of training courses and seminars with certificates.

A holistic approach was adopted early on, which not only deals with the occurrence of health complaints, but above all with their prevention.

Fun and entertainment are an important key to the sustainability of measures to promote health. People are always at the center of our considerations.

The IGR Insitut für Gesundheit und Ergonomie operates nationwide and is a partner of INQA (Initiative Neue Qualität der Arbeit, supported by the Federal Ministry of Labor and Social Affairs), as well as a founding member of the State Working Group on Prevention – a project of the Bavarian State Ministry of the Environment and Health.

The IGR is part of a strong network of doctors, therapists, scientists, company health management staff, representatives of the authorities, product developers and retailers.

What our customers say

Benjamin Flor

Product Manager Cherry Europe GmbH We want to influence our sales by certifying our products. We therefore integrated the certificate into our communication at all points of contact with our customers. It serves as a label directly on the product packaging, is used as a certificate in our online store and is also used as an overlay in our product photos in order to stand out even more on our platform and those of our retail partners.

Ingo Grusa

CEO Baak GmbH & Co KGThe Ergonomics Innovation Award is a special distinction for us. We received the award back in 2019 for our patented Go&Relax system. This award for our hallux valgus problem solver 'Sky' makes us proud and drives us to think further and further. Our aim is to give people a better quality of life with Baak and our safety shoes.

Ursula Fernández Lamarche

Health coach AOK Rheinland-Pfalz/SaarlandWhen it comes to workplace analysis, Humen Office is our secret superhero in the office! The pictorial representation reflects the customer's working posture and the associated incorrect loads. In this way, errors can be detected by the user.
The correct adjustment of the chair, table, monitor, etc. is easy to explain with this visualization and can be easily communicated in a sustainable way.
That inspires me and my customers.

Mst. Gerhard Ausserhuber

Head of Sales JOKA Kapsamer GmbHAs regular participants in courses and training sessions, we are convinced by the IGR.
The trainers are always well prepared, the sessions are fun and impart important knowledge. From the basics of ergonomic working to really practical measures in sales consulting
for high-quality sleep systems, there is always something exciting on offer.
The positive feedback and success of our ProNatura retail partners confirm the effectiveness of the training courses.
