We can’t say which big movie ERGO-CASE appeared in because we’re sworn to secrecy. But it was a global blockbuster and part of a much-loved franchise. And it’s fair to say that ERGO-CASE’s ergonomic curves and light, robust construction were probably of great comfort to our mystery star because moviemaking is an exhausting business…even when you’re the hero.

ERGO-CASE is larger than BODY-CASE and MINITEC – which always creates an added challenge. Larger enclosures inevitably carry more electronic components, adding to the overall weight. So the requirement for each housing to be comfortable is even higher.

Let’s not forget, this is a wearable enclosure that’s also big enough to be specified for wall-mounted roles. And while size XS can be worn on the wrist, sizes S, M and L are destined for belts; it takes the right kind of body contouring on a larger enclosure to ensure that it never feels too bulky when being worn.
