An ergonomic design provides a comfortable form-factor that is designed for all-day use and reduces the risk of RSI’s (Repetitive Stress Injuries). Some key considerations for selecting an ergonomic design include:

  • Device weight
  • Comfortable shape for scan-intensive applications
  • Keypad design that maximizes efficiency
  • Easy-to-read display-inside or outside
  • Visual/Audio cues after bar code reads

As you can see, there are many factors that should be considered and there are also multiple choices for different environments and applications.
