HOGGAN Ergo Announces Highly Anticipated Enhancements to the ergoFET Handheld Digital Force Gauge, Greatly Impacting the Field of Ergonomic Research and Application

The HOGGAN ergoFET handheld digital force gauge (measures various push-pull forces), used by ergonomic engineers worldwide, is now more versatile and accurate. Improvements have been made to the interface and the force capacities have been doubled to accurately measure up to 300 lbs.

Salt Lake City, Utah (PRWEB) March 18, 2009 -- HOGGAN Ergo, Ergonomic Division of HOGGAN Health Industries, Inc., proudly announces engineering and design updates to the ergoFET handheld digital force gauge. The newly added features to the ergoFET force gauge offer improved versatility, efficiency and ease of use for ergonomic, engineering, health care, safety, research and product testing applications.

Due to worldwide demand, users now have the flexibility to select their preferred unit of measure and have it displayed in Pounds, Newtons or KGF. Previous models of ergoFET force gauge allowed only one unit of measure preset at the factory. Additionally, this enhancement to the ergoFET push pull force gauge combines the available force capacities of the previous two models (150 lb. and 300 lb.) into one ergoFET force gauge, rated up to 300 lbs. with superior accuracy.

"The ergoFET handheld digital force gauge is very popular with ergonomists, engineers, safety and healthcare professionals. Its ergonomic design fits comfortably in the palm of your hand and weighs less than one pound, making the ergoFET an excellent choice for hand push or pull force measurements compared to the typical larger, rectangular and bulkier models", says Don Gowans, Director of HOGGAN Ergo. "The new redesign and features of the ergoFET allow users to perform their force measurement tasks with ease and efficiency. There really is nothing comparable in the current marketplace when you consider the ergoFET's affordability in conjunction with its additional functionality. The affordability of this unit alone is huge when put in context with our current economic conditions. This is an essential instrument for any ergonomist or engineers in similar fields needing to accurately test various push-pull forces."

The new ergoFET handheld digital force gauge is now very affordable at $995.00, complete with a full complement of test attachments. Those interested may see the debut of the new ergoFET force gauge at the 2009 Applied Ergonomic Conference (AEC) in Reno, NV, March 23-26, 2009.
