The GiSCYT research group develops research and development activities in the field of ergonomics and motion analysis. It has three lines of research: Ergonomics, bioengineering of the Human Movement and Prevention of risks at work. The Ergomotion laboratory uses wireless technology for online recording of indicators of muscular, biomechanical and cognitive activity when performing a work activity. Our technology integrates video information and data for real-time analysis of activities, produces multimedia reports and quantitative data of the analyzed parameters. The Ergomotion laboratory offers different products adapted to the needs of your company. These products can be customized according to your requirements: prevention, identification, control, intervention or development.

The ErgoMotion-lab laboratory of the Universidad del Rosario, is a pioneer in developing a new way to intervene in a health problem of workers that is growing daily, for this purpose is used the convergence of several scientific disciplines in the development of medical technology solutions aimed not only at prevention, but also to enable and integrate workers who have experienced this problem.
