Pipetting ergonomics is critical for reducing and preventing repetitive strain injuries (RSIs). Our new web page with videos, white paper, poster and a quiz can help you mitigate your risk of RSIs.

Several factors degrade pipette comfort, leading to painful ailments known as RSIs – repetitive strain injuries. To help you better understand and mitigate these risks, METTLER TOLEDO has a new lab ergonomics page featuring a downloadable white paper, videos and a new "Stretch" poster with a stretching routine specifically designed for people who do bench work.

Ergonomic scientists have recently published a number of papers that address potential problems associated with pipetting. A common theme among all studies: Pipetting is a forceful and repetitive activity and there is a strong association between pipetting and the occurrence of repetitive motion injuries. In fact, over the course of a year, pipetting for just over an hour a day is enough to put you at risk, the chances of which increase dramatically with workload and age.

By knowing when and where you are at risk, you are in a much better position to reduce or even eliminate this health risk.
