Ergonomics: diagnosis and innovation
Ergonomic diagnosis consists of analysing and understanding human activity with the aim of improving the performance of that activity. In the workplace, ergonomics helps to prevent occupational hazards, reduce work-related accidents and improve the well-being/health of operators while seeking to improve the efficiency of the company.
Ergonomic diagnosis, FCBA supports you
Ergonomic diagnoses can be carried out in companies in all types of sectors, from forestry to construction and furniture companies.
Here are some examples of projects currently being carried out by our ergonomists :
- The ergonomic diagnosis project for furniture manufacturers
Musculoskeletal disorders (MSD) are the leading cause of occupational illness in this sector. In view of this, we propose an ergonomic diagnosis financed by the AG2R and APGIS mutual insurance companies to prevent occupational risks.

- The EXTRAFOR project: Development of an exoskeleton
This project concerns the development of an exoskeleton capable of assisting forestry workers in their tasks in order to reduce the arduousness of their work, avoid premature physical wear and tear and facilitate access to forestry jobs.
See the EXTRAFOR project – exoskeleton
- A new bed concept to reduce MSD
The ergonomic diagnosis was implemented to support a new hotel chain. The project made it possible to evaluate and propose improvements for the preparation of a new bed concept with regard to the risks of MSDs (musculoskeletal disorders) among cleaning staff.
Our ergonomists are at your service!
In product design, our ergonomists develop methodologies on the understanding of uses in order to adapt the product/space to the needs of the identified user, or to innovate/create new concepts.
Whether for work or product design, ergonomics uses several disciplines (anthropology, biomechanics, psychology, sociology…) to improve well-being, comfort, health, usability, efficiency, etc.
