Joke Technology Improved ergonomics for reduced RSI
Germany – Joke Technology will be exhibiting its Eneska-3-series handpieces, which are intended to reduce the risk of RSI (repetitive strain injury) and tendonitis, through improved ergonomic design.
The company says that the handpieces feature a hemisphere-mounted tool holder, which eliminates the need for awkward wrist bending that can lead to long-term soft tissue damage, even very highly detailed work that requires sustained high levels of concentration and manual agility. The hollow, hemispherical handpeice is claimed to fit perfectly in the hand when working with lapping or polishing rings and to relieve strain on small muscles, the Germany-based company from North Rhine-Westphalia notes.
The Eneska-3 offer includes a choice of an extension piece or a reducing gear is available in the offer. Conversion from right-hand to left-hand operation is performed with a change of a screw.
