Ergonomes, the collection of biomechanical data is long and tedious? That's why we offer KIMEA, our software solution to save you time on this aspect. Check out all our features in this explanatory video.
With his expertise in the use of depth cameras in postural analysis, Pierre Plantard contributed to the 1st edition of the scientific book "DHM and Posturography". This book, published on August 23, explores the body of knowledge and the state of the art of digital human modeling, as well as its applications in ergonomics and posturography. The book provides a first glimpse into the human simulation tool industry, with detailed chapters describing posture elements, postural interactions and fields of application.
Our founder looked at the issue of integrating a technology such as depth cameras for industrial application into the field of postural analysis for ergonomics. It draws on both these years of research and field experience with industrial partners.
Each year the contribution rates are determined by the CRAMIF or CARSAT services and defined by a ministerial order. Objective to enable companies to contribute (employer contribution) and protect employees.
This contribution rate varies depending on the size of the
(national workforce), the business sector (risks incurred by the
employees), the loss of the institution concerned. The rate is given
every year to businesses.
Each activity has a “risk code” determined by
based on the main activity for the largest number of employees in the
the company. 2 digits 2 letters (ex 55 3BC), 208 nomenclature risks
in 9 sectors. This code should not be confused with the APE code (rather
economic indicator). the risk code determines the risk incurred by the
There are 3 types of pricing:
Collective pricing for companies
less than 20 employees. The rate is defined collectively according to the
of sectoral elements
Individual pricing for companies
250 employees. The rate is calculated from the elements of the
Mixed pricing for companies between
21 and 249 employees
The purpose of the calculation method is to rely on the
the company’s disaster. In this way there is now, since 2018, a
a real financial impact on the contribution rate in a sense as in the
the other to “reward” the efforts and actions of
The time we hear about big data, sensors, reality
Virtual… technologies infusing all sectors of activity. The
prevention sector is not spared. And applications and uses are
for many yet to invent. Some concrete examples of this
the appropriation of new technologies through the prevention of
risks at work *.
The installation of sensors in a parking lot under terrain for example
allows you to measure in time the peaks of pollution and to trigger the
real-time breakings. Objective: to ensure user comfort
(especially sound) and save energy. These same sensors in the
the tertiary sector makes it possible to objectify the feelings of atmosphere. Visibility

Better manage equipment, non-conformities and respond
to the security obligations of people and property through RFID chips
is now possible. The chips allow to better share the
information, identify, tag, track and add information about the
facilities and make them readily accessible to all stakeholders.
Coupled with artificial intelligence, fleas can be used to retranspose
models and to go more and more towards predictive maintenance in
rebuilding the scenarios. Also via smartphones it is possible to
to bring an interesting dimension of mobility.
Drone and AI
Making inaccessible accessible is the Mission of
Drones. They offer the possibility to work on images, allow
to inspect parks for facilities that are not readily accessible. In
Association artificial intelligence it is possible to raise several
sites and to build models to see the evolution of the structure on the
a certain period of time and bring alerts when you think there is a danger
Training and reality
The human aspect is important in prevention. The appearance
training to anchor knowledge and good practices is
Essential. It is no longer enough to bring knowledge. With reality
virtual it is possible to simulate situations, site visits,… And
ensure the safe learning of gestures.
For several months we have been talking about our solution
software and its technological aspect. Its strengths for ergonomists.
But did you know that ergonomists do not have the exclusive use of
KIMEA. The tool can also help other trades. We're explaining this to you.
Are you a prevention technician?
During training at the future workstation, KIMEA will be interesting to learn the right gesture. It will bring a playful point of view for sometimes long courses. The impact of the images is stronger and guarantees better memorisation on the part of the employee.
Are you a work doctor?
The overall view of a post and the scores by articulation will allow you to better target the workstations on which an operator can resume his activity in the event of a contraindication or in case of return to work.
Are you a method engineer?
KIMEA allows you to have real-time data relative to the prescribed. This will allow you to easily identify if there is a gap between the prescribed range times and the actual time. In addition, when you return each task for each workstation, you will be able to create a detailed activity diagram (time, MSDS risks, solicited joints,…)
Are you a production manager?
The tool allows you to do a mapping of workstations and to have a global vision. You will be able to make rotating loops of your collaborators who do not solicit the same joints. And compared to competing tools, we guarantee you a time saver. Indeed, without sensors or combinations, there is no need to stop the production line several minutes to start analyzing. Finally you can have a global view of your site from a physical and biomechanical point of view.
Ergonomics is the the science of adapting work to human. it is looking for the best possible match between the physical and mental characteristics of the workers and production targets.
The ergonome analyzes the
working situations with a view to transforming them to:
health of people
take a turn for the better
their working conditions
take a turn for the better
the quality and efficiency of production
To do this, the ergonomist carries out a systematic analysis of a holistic approach that takes into account all the elements that make up a working situation. This analysis is multidisciplinary and involves the knowledge of the ergonomist in various disciplines (biomechanics, psychology, Physiology, sociology, technology, etc.). The approach is also participatory because the ergonomist will question and invite the persons concerned to express their points of view of their activity. The elements collected will be integrated into the analysis Global.
But it must be before ergonomist has an approach that is “realistic” because it should be interested in the activity as it is actually exercised, and thus differences between this actual work and the one prescribed by the company.
