The Institute in intensive exchange with research and teaching
Our work focuses on applying the latest research findings to improve working conditions in administration and production.
We are in exchange with representatives of different disciplines from occupational science, medicine and physiotherapy. We are part of an expert network that deals with the typical manifestations of modern work. These can be poor posture and its negative side effects in the form of musculoskeletal disorders (caused by an inadequate working environment) or, increasingly, psychological stress due to work intensification, from stress to the various manifestations of burn-out syndrome.
For us, humans are always at the centre of our considerations. With practically applicable solutions that lead to a verifiable improvement in direct working conditions.
With our know-how, we support you in product development, since this is an effective contribution to ergonomics and health. The advantage for you: a product that really shines. We help you to get innovative solutions ready for series production and market maturity or can, for example, put your thesis to the test within the framework of a long-term study. The IGR is part of a wide-ranging network of experts and can always convince with up-to-date know-how.
Sustainable knowledge transfer, education and training
One of our main concerns is to bring knowledge about healthy solutions into the companies and to sustainably anchor them there. I.e. employees are to be trained who live the idea of workplace health and communicate the principles to others. In their role as multipliers, they bring about a sustainable change in awareness and behaviour of all colleagues involved. For this purpose, a comprehensive training and further education programme has been developed that provides the appropriate content for every requirement in the companies. For administration as well as for production.
