Researchers from the Department of Environmental and Occupational Health Sciences at the University of Washington are planning to do a study measuring how different computer input devices affect how people use computers. We hope the results of this study will help us evaluate the ergonomic aptitude of current designs and potentially lead to the identification of additional design modifications to further promote effective ergonomics and health.
The duration of the study is: 2 to 4 hours
You will be asked to use: A keyboards and pointing device (mouse) on different workstations
We will measure: Wrist posture with goniometers, Muscle activity with electrogmyography, Preference questionnaires, and Comfort questionnaires
All of these measurements are non-invasive and minimal risk. If you do decide to participate, you will be compensated $20/hr for your time. This money will be paid in cash.
Taking part in this study is voluntary. If you are interested in participating in the study or just want more information, please contact Jay Kim, project coordinator, at 206-543-4544 or via the email address listed below.
