Medical gloves for improved ergonomics in production at Audi
- Assembly aid reduces strain on the hands by more than half
- Audi Board of Management Member for Production Prof. Dr. Hubert Waltl: “We place great value on ergonomic workplaces for our employees.”
Audi’s Production division is improving ergonomics as well as health and safety in its factories. Employees at the plants in Ingolstadt, Neckarsulm, Brussels and Győr are currently testing new medical gloves. These so called production orthoses reduce pressure stress with many assembly tasks by more than 50 percent. It is planned to put the special glove into series application this year.
