Product Development

We accompany you on the path to ergonomic innovation

Many creative minds have excellent ideas on how to make our workplace environment or many a challenge in our private lives more health-friendly. Unfortunately, however, further implementation often fails due to a lack of industry knowledge or a lack of motivation from a strong partner.

This is exactly where the IGR comes in and supports you in the development of innovative ergonomic products so that their market launch actually becomes a reality. As a unique institution of our kind, we have been working intensively in this field for 25 years now and therefore know both the opportunities and the hurdles in detail. We share all this experience with you in the course of our collaboration, as well as the latest knowledge from the fields of medicine and physiotherapy. As a result, you not only secure a profitable competitive advantage, but also save valuable time and effort as the IGR guides you through the process in a structured manner.

Step by step at your side

Your product idea should help others to improve their health by reducing the risk of poor posture, muscular disorders or other physical strain. That is why we place people at the center of all our considerations during the development process and pay attention to practical solutions. Together, we ensure that careful planning is followed by equally precise construction at the highest level, so that any defects can be ruled out in advance. In this way, we ensure that your new product meets or ideally even exceeds the applicable quality and safety requirements.

For your ergonomically sophisticated product to be a market success, it must be competitive in terms of user-friendliness and value for money. The IGR’s team of experts is also on hand to provide you with help and advice. Once you have passed our certification process, you can also decorate your ready-to-sell product with the IGR seal of quality.

What our customers say

Hans Groch

R&D Manager LEITZ ACCO Brands GmbH & Co KGWe have been working closely with the IGR Institute for several years to have our Leitz ergonomics products certified. The cooperation with IGR enriches our product development processes and the exchange on an equal footing is particularly important for our team. We value the expertise of the IGR and can highly recommend working with them.

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.

Wilhelm Humpert

Managing Director ergotec - Wilhelm Humpert GmbH & Co. KG We were looking for a strong and experienced partner for the certification of our ergonomic products and found one in the IGR. It was particularly important to us that the certification process was clearly structured and transparent for us, but also that the certificate awarded already has a high level of acceptance in the market. We look forward to many more projects with the IGR.
