  12. 13. Computer-based Training <ul><li>Computer-based Training products were designed with both the user and the network administrator in mind. With three distinct styles (workstations with Total Access™ modesties; workstations with iMod™ modesties; and tables with iMod™ modesties), these products are ideal for the classroom and training facility environments. The Total Access™ removable modesty, provides network professionals complete access to computer cables and wiring. The iMod™ is a unique built-in wire management compartment. With a removable modesty cover in laminate or metal, the iMod™ provides full access to the back of your computer hardware. Cables and wires for your computer’s electrical and data requirements are neatly tucked inside the compartment. Both modesty options provide easy access, making networking a breeze. With every square foot of space so valuable, adding a Visual Display Option allows you to create flexible, multi-tasking learning centers. The Downview Technology or The Trolley™ Personal Monitor Arm System with Intelligent Motion Technology™ secures your fl at panel monitor below your work surface, which is the ideal solution for any reconfigurable, space-constrained workspace. </li></ul>

  47. 48. Ergonomic Interactions at Computer Workstations
  48. 49. Take the Test Accommodation Demo Card
  49. 50. The Natural Viewing Angle <ul><li>The Downward Gaze angle is the body’s natural way to view close objects </li></ul><ul><li>Staring straight ahead at a computer monitor is an unnatural position, resulting in aches, pains, fatigue, eye-strain, and other illnesses </li></ul>
  50. 51. Computer Usage & Health Problems <ul><li>Accommodation </li></ul><ul><li>Eyes work harder to accommodate (or change focus) as objects get closer </li></ul><ul><li>Scientific studies indicate looking downward improves the eye’s ability accommodate </li></ul>Eye strain is number one complaint of computer users
  51. 52. Computer Usage & Health Problems <ul><li>Convergence </li></ul><ul><li>Eyes turn inward as objects become closer (this is the resting point of vergence) </li></ul><ul><li>Looking downward decreases the distance between eyes and the resting point of vergence </li></ul><ul><li>Eyes are less strained as the resting point of vergence comes closer </li></ul>Eye strain is number one complaint of computer users
  52. 53. Recommendations for Relieving Eye Strain <ul><li>Adjust eye-to-screen distance </li></ul><ul><li>Adjust vertical location of screen </li></ul><ul><li>Adjust screen tilt </li></ul><ul><li>Adjust lighting </li></ul><ul><li>Adjust screen colors </li></ul>
