Improve productivity, Reduce Repetitive Stress Injuries with Ergonomic Products

Ergo-items. com celebrates first year in business

SHOREWOOD, Wisc. (PRWEB) July 29, 2005

With the workplace relying more on computers, businesses looking to prevent repetitive stress injury in employees can turn to Ergo-items. com.

The online business -- owned by Peter Velikanov and based in Shorewood, Wisc. -- specializes in the latest in ergonomic products for the office. Items available through the Web site include various arm supports, ergonomic mice, ergonomic trackballs, ergonomic chairs, footrests, keyboards and numeric keypads and more.

The site is hosted by Yahoo! Stores.

According to Velikanov, the business will celebrate its year anniversary in August 2005. He said it has been successful by offering unique items to a niche market.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's Web site, "Ergonomics is a discipline that involves arranging the environment to fit the person in it. When ergonomics is applied correctly in the work environment, visual and musculoskeletal discomfort and fatigue are reduced significantly."

Products designed especially to ease the stress of sitting at a computer terminal for eight hours a day, or more, are an investment in health, said Velikanov. "Ergonomic products can prevent repetitive stress injuries, such as carpal tunnel syndrome, and help to increase productivity," he said. "They also can bring more fun to routine computer work."

The use of such ergonomic products as those found on Ergo-items. com can also reduce the number of workers' compensation claims.

The company has served more than 1,000 customers in the past year, the owner said. The goal is to expand the product offerings in the near future.
