Precision Ergonomics - How using motion capture and AI can change the ergonomics landscape

November 2019

Ergonomics has long relied on subjective measurements when it comes to posture analysis.

Just how accurate is this technology? This webinar will describe some of the history of using AI in ergonomics, and also demonstrate the results of MyAbilities PDAi technology, as presented at the recent Human Factors and Ergonomics Society conference in Seattle, Washington.
