Ergonomic and efficient: erGO! clean convinces users

> 40% of cleaners complain of pain*

> Minimise downtime and costs considerably

> Study proves erGO! clean is #1 in user test

> 77.5% of the participants prefer erGO! clean from UNGER over the competition

When it comes to diseases of the musculo-skeletal system, cleaners are at a higher risk. 40% complain of persistent pain.* This in turn is reflected in absenteeism and extra costs and thus should be concern for site managers and decision-makers, too. For this reason, UNGER, together with the University of Siegen and Velamed Medizintechnik GmbH, conducted an independent test of three selected floor cleaning systems. The result: erGO! clean convinces users with improved ergonomics and greater efficiency.

Arms, backs, wrists: when cleaning floors, building cleaning personnel put a heavy strain on their bodies every day due to the repetitive cleaning movements. The consequences: pain, illness, absenteeism, and corresponding costs for decision-makers due to jobs not completed on time.

In order to make the work of professional cleaners more ergonomic and efficient, UNGER, in cooperation with the University of Siegen, has scientifically tested three selected floor cleaning systems.

The focus was on UNGER erGO! clean and two comparable products from well-known manufacturers.

During the study, 40 test persons intensively tested the various products for four hours each. In a realistic practical test, they cleaned large surfaces several times with a figure-eight swing in order to simulate the constantly repeating cleaning movement as digital measurements of the musculature were taken. Before and after the practical test, the test persons responded to questionnaires to evaluate their subjective experiences with the cleaning systems.

The result of the study proves: UNGER erGO! clean holds its own against the competition by a wide margin. The feedback from the users was particularly positive. After the product tests in a direct comparison, 77.5% of the test subjects chose erGO! clean as their preferred floor cleaning system because of the positive product characteristics, such as the innovative tank system and the intuitive S-telescopic handle.

Investing in the health of your employees pays off. Staff downtime is minimised and costs are reduced. At the same time, employee motivation increases because they feel appreciated and cared for. You too can benefit and find out about the advantages of the erGO! clean floor cleaning system.
