How high should I hang this picture? How wide should I design this worktable? How tall should I make that bookshelf?
We live in a world that doesn't always fit us—or our customers, our visitors, our students, our family members—as well as it could. Lots of measurement data exists that could be used to make our environment more comfortable, more accessible and more functional, but it hasn't always been easy to find.
Ergi changes all of that.
In an instant, Ergi provides a set of targeted human body measurements that allow you to customize everything from the layout of your standing desk to the eye level of a classroom presentation, the size of 3D-printed tools to the exhibit designs for a museum blockbuster. No matter what your project, Ergi provides the human-friendly dimensions that make design, engineering, and display work.
Ergi gives you measurements for:
· Standing and seated postures
· Males and females
· Ages 4 through adult
· Short, average, and tall builds
Ergi also gives you measurements in inches or centimeters for use anywhere in the world.
Ergi's interface is simple, intuitive, and fast. Select your criteria, then choose standing or sitting. Each screen immediately shows you seven critical design dimensions for the criteria you chose. Easily flip back and forth to change your criteria as needed.
A "Standards" section also provides basic, average measurements used commonly throughout design and engineering fields for those projects that don't need a high level of customization.
Whether you're brainstorming new designs or working on-site, Ergi gives you the measurement data you need right when you need it to keep your design process moving.
