Ergonomic means that special attention has been given to the development of a product to ensure that it is the best possible ‘fit’ for the user, the environment and the task it is expected to perform.

It has long been accepted that reducing worker discomfort by placing greater emphasis on ergonomics has a positive impact on efficiency and productivity.

In a modern office environment, for example, the design of desks, chairs, monitors, keyboards and lighting is assessed in some detail when creating a workspace in an effort to reduce the musculoskeletal effects on personnel of long sedentary periods spent staring at a screen.

A Paxster operator’s office is the cabin. It’s the place where s/he spends eight hours a day, so it’s essential that every aspect of the cab’s design – from the height of the step-in to the shape and location of the control levers – is considered if the operator is going to be kept comfortable, and therefore productive, throughout his or her shift.


At Paxster we’ve been focussing on how ergonomic design can boost driver comfort for more than 10 years. By keepting the operator at the center of our design thinking, we design vehicles that are truly designed for the working human. A great example of that is how our cargo boxes are located in ideal lifting height. 

No bending or stretching required to place or collect cargo. 


Electric cargo box doors (available on the Cargo-model) make life easier for drivers. Use your elbow or back, and with the push of a button the door opens up to make access easy, even when your hands are full.
