Ergonomic Evaluation of 3D Mice


3D mice provide support for manipulating and navigating in CAD applications. Fraunhofer Institute for Industrial Engineering IAO was asked by 3Dconnexion GmbH to conduct a scientific study assessing the ergonomic benefits of working with a SpaceMouse Enterprise. Health related issues such as the strain of the hand-arm-system and the impact on the sitting posture as well as the usability and user experience were examined. Finally, the effect on the productivity was analyzed under laboratory conditions.

The study was split into a laboratory study and a field study. The goal of the laboratory study was to measure and observe human factors issues, health-related issues as well as productivity.
