Postural analysis with video or 3-camera SIMI Motion Analysis system; 8-wireless 2D inclinometers which can be body mounted or put on mobile Equipment to determine inclination (relative angles) which can be used, among other things to determine inter-segmental angles and musculoskeletal disorder risk. 

Static strength measurement equipment available (push, pull, lift, particularly for upper limbs; grip, pinch) and strength analysis software (3DSSP - 3D static strength programme).

Anthropometry analysis software (MQPro software and measurement tools). 

Access to force platform (Kistler).

Alternative office Workstation components: static and dynamic tables, mobile retro-fit surfaces, chairs and postural support systems.
