Home Happy Seat Offers Ergonomic Benefits Ergonomics Done Right®

Written by: humantech on May 18th, 2011

Miguel GonzalezI recently came across a webpage article that featured the Ford Happy Seat and how it has helped improve comfort for its assembly line workers. Similarly, Toyota Motor Manufacturing also uses a seating aid for assembly they call a ‘Raku Seat’. These are both great examples of how innovative thinking and design can be applied to reduce ergonomic risk as well as increase production efficiency.  Do you have an assembly aid that has made work easier, faster, or more comfortable for your employees?  If so, I’d like to know more about it!  Tell us more about it, or email me here .

    Terence,
    The TOYOTA ‘Raku Seat’ is essentially the same thing as the FORD ‘Happy Seat’ with respect to application and benefits. It’s really just a different name for a similar Engineering aid used in automotive assembly. I actually found a video of one on http://www.youtube.com (just search RAKU Seat). Thanks for your inquiry.
