About the Expert

At TEAMS Design my clients rely upon our ergonomic knowledge for every product we design and develop. In fact, the founder of our company is considered one the leading experts in early ergonomic studies in Europe in the sixties and his studies and publications are the foundation for everything we design. My personal work with Bosch power tools in particular has centered around an intimate knowledge of anthropocentric and physical ergonomics.
