BendPak introduces Ergochair ERGO-RS for technicians

BendPak Inc. has introduced Ergochair, a new brand it says is dedicated to helping technicians work more comfortably. With this new brand the company has also introduced the ERGO-RS, a crossover work seat for technicians.

The ERGO-RS has a 75-degree range of adjustment with six locking positions, so it can move from a completely flat creeper position for under-vehicle work to fully upright. Both the seat height and supportive back rest of the ERGO-RS adjust together to deliver a comfortable, ergonomic position every time. BendPak says this new seat makes performing awkward tasks in the shop more ergonomic, reducing stress and strain to deliver greater productivity and fewer injuries.

Maximum capacity for the chair is 350 lbs. The Ergochair ERGO-RS is delivered fully assembled.

“Proper ergonomics ensures that you can work comfortably, which increases productivity and efficiency while reducing fatigue,” says Jeff Kritzer, BendPak president and CEO. “Our new Ergochair rolling work seats provide support and prevent back and neck pain. They reduce awkward positions to help technicians, detailers, assembly line workers, home mechanics, and others perform awkward tasks comfortably while maintaining good posture.”

Ergochair will debut its first products, including the ERGO-RS, in BendPak booth 81030 at the SEMA Show in Las Vegas Nov. 1-4.
