Company Pursuing European Distribution Partner at Mobile World Congress 2016
CINCINNATI, OH--(Marketwired - Feb 9, 2016) - TREWGrip, LLC today announced two new distribution partnerships that will help the company expand its reach into the ergonomic marketplace. Ergo Works, Inc. and ErgoCanada will market and sell the TREWGrip Mobile Dock, the first handheld, rear-type keyboard and air mouse that allows people to comfortably enter data using all 10 fingers while sitting, standing or moving around. TREWGrip features a full-size QWERTY keyboard that connects to any Bluetooth HID-enabled technology, providing a mobile and ergonomic data-entry experience across a variety of computing platforms.
Unlike traditional flat keyboards, TREWGrip is curved to allow people to hold the device, providing an ergonomic experience by maintaining the hands in a more natural "handshake" position. The keyboard is gripped like a steering wheel, which keeps the users' arms at shoulder-width apart to help eliminate discomfort in the chest, neck, back and arms. Users also control on-screen mouse movement by simply gesturing and tilting the device.
"TREWGrip's ergonomic design makes it an ideal solution for individuals that need or want a more comfortable form factor for data entry," said Mark Parker, president of TREWGrip. "The ergonomics marketplace has undergone dramatic growth as more people are looking for ways to improve their productivity and safety through products and solutions that take human factors into consideration. Our curved mobile keyboard allows people to work comfortably and safely how and where they want to, whether sitting in coffee shop or standing at their desk. The partnerships with Ergo Works, Inc. and ErgoCanada provide us immediate exposure into a growing market of prospective customers who are actively seeking solutions like TREWGrip."
Ergo Works, Inc. was founded in 1995 and is a privately held supplier of ergonomic furniture, products and services that contribute to a healthy work life and improvements in worker performance and productivity. Additional information is available at AskErgoWorks.com.
"TREWGrip is a one-of-a-kind product with a purpose and design that addresses major challenges of our traditional workplace environment and data-entry solutions," said Anne Kramer, CEO of Ergo Works, Inc. "TREWGrip's message is true mobile productivity, eliminating the confined-to-a-desk mentality while promoting comfort, safety and the ability to be as productive on mobile devices as you are on portable or desktop computers."
ErgoCanada launched its ergonomics portal in 2000 with the goal of serving as a reliable source for ergonomic products and information. The Saskatoon, Saskatchewan-based company is a trusted resource among ergonomic professionals, clients and consumers providing comprehensive listings of ergonomic input devices and accessories, including detailed technical specifications for each product.

"We feel that there are a variety of unique workstation environments, including mobile workers, power users of mobile devices and individuals who seek to work while walking on a treadmill or simply in a larger office, which affords them this movement capability, where the TREWGrip is uniquely suited," said Michael Craggs, President, ErgoCanada.
TREWGrip is exhibiting at 4YFN, booth 29H, from February 22-25, 2016 in Barcelona, Spain. The exhibit is part of Mobile World Congress 2016, the world's largest mobile industry exhibition. While in Spain, the company will be pursuing additional distribution partnership for the European market.
Parker added, "The ErgoCanada and Ergo Works partnerships expand our presence in North America, and we hope to find similar partners as we introduce TREWGrip to the international mobile tech community. We look forward to the opportunity to increase our visibility among companies and professionals looking to introduce new and innovative ergonomic products in Europe."
