Treston’s new AI-Powered ergonomics service seeks to end work-related MSDs

The average cost of a work-related injury leave in the US is $1,686 per day! This includes the cost of wage losses, medical expenses, administrative expenses, and employer costs. The total cost of MSDs to the US economy is estimated to be $45 to $54 BILLION per year.

Treston, a leading manufacturer of ergonomic workspace solutions, is strongly committed to actively reducing both the occurrence of these injuries and the resulting financial implications they have on businesses. That is the foundation of their ground-breaking new service – Treston ErgoID™.

This cutting-edge ergonomics assessment service is set to transform workspaces across the globe. Operating under the tagline “Identify. Improve. Thrive,” Treston ErgoID™ employs AI computer vision software, with the expertise of their very own ergonomics specialists, to analyze workflows and provide comprehensive insights into workplace ergonomics.

While Treston is a global supplier of ergonomic furniture, the company acknowledges that it’s not enough to solely provide top-of-the-line furniture to address the continuing problem of work-related musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs). Employers and workers alike should also be equipped to identify poor ergonomic conditions and understand how to utilize their furniture properly, maximizing their investment in ergonomics. This very basis is what drives Treston ErgoID™ services.

Employers and workers seeking to unlock the true potential of their workspace can now choose from three assessment service packages: Starter, Pro, and Enterprise. From a one-time ergonomics assessment of customer-recorded workflow video to a complete on-site evaluation and training, each package caters to specific needs and budgets, ensuring a healthier and more productive work environment.

Treston ErgoID™ stands out by combining the power of AI computer vision with the expertise of its own ergonomics specialists. Users receive personalized recommendations based on video assessment results, encompassing ergonomic improvement suggestions and proper positioning techniques. This comprehensive approach empowers individuals and organizations to maximize productivity while minimizing the risk of musculoskeletal issues.

“As a manufacturer of ergonomic furniture, we are committed to promote life-long work ability by helping our customers manage their physical workload,” says Treston Ergonomics Specialist, Jonna Patama. “By identifying the harmful work postures and providing training for a more ergonomic way of working, we can work together to prevent work-related MSDs now and in the future.”

There are many options for workplaces when it comes to assessing the ergonomics of the workplace. From manual assessments to wearable technology to full-scale ergonomists’ consultations, each method offers its own advantages and challenges. Manual assessments can be subjective and require an interruption to workers. Wearable technology can be very costly in terms of money and set up time. Neither of those options go beyond basic data to provide concrete action plans for improvement. Ergonomics consultants, while providing a very detailed dive into workplace ergonomics, come at a high price tag, often outside the budget of smaller workplaces.

Treston ErgoID™ bridges the gaps found in other methods. By combining AI computer vision’s standardized consistency with the expert recommendations provided by our ergonomics specialists, this service eliminates the need for work interruptions and avoids the time and costs associated with other approaches.

As the world adapts to new ways of working, Treston ErgoID™ emerges as a game-changer, offering a unique opportunity to identify, improve, and thrive in the ever-evolving landscape of workspace ergonomics. Unlock your workspace’s true potential with Treston ErgoID™ and pave the way for a healthier and more productive future.
