Ergonomic working position
An ergonomic body position makes the Ergo80 more comfortable, less fatiguing and, more importantly, much easier to use. Additionally, optimal operator ergonomics minimises the risk of repetitive strain-related injuries. A happy worker is a productive worker.
A natural view of the subject
With conventional microscope eyepieces, operators must position their eyes very close to the eyepieces, blocking out ambient light. The intense light exiting the eyepieces causes the pupils to contract. Constant contraction and expansion of the pupils is the main cause of eye fatigue with microscopes.
With the patented eyepieces of Ergo80, users sit back from the eyepieces (up to 38mm), allowing ambient light into the eyes. Additionally, the light exiting the eyepieces is spread over a larger area, providing a more natural view of the subject.
Freedom of head movement
An additional benefit of Vision Engineering’s patented eyepieces is that users do not need to precisely align their eyes with the eyepieces. This freedom of movement reduces neck and back strain associated with the fixed body position of conventional microscope eyepieces.
Easy hand-eye co-ordination
Easy hand-eye co-ordination is possible with the Ergo80 – critical for re-work, repair, dissection and other manipulation tasks. Sitting back from the eyepieces provides users with much better peripheral vision, so they can co-ordinate hands in a natural manner.
Ability to wear glasses
With Ergo80, operators do not need to remove their glasses (or safety glasses) to use the microscope.
