Transportation and Limo Services for the Next Inventors Congress

Whatever your reasons are for going to the next Inventors’ congress you can get there using some handy transportation options.  We like to encourage all attendees to handle there transport using some of these options as it cuts down on use of the venues garage, encourages carpooling (which can spur networking and conversation) and can be less expensive (when using group rates) then paying for individual parking.

Reasons to Get Transportation to the Venue

Here are reasons why you should opt for the service instead of taking your own car:

You Don’t Have to Drive: If you don’t feel like driving and want to travel in maximum comfort, there’s no better way than to seek a limo service. With a chauffeur driving, you can sit back and relax; leaving the stresses of driving to someone else. It is also safer if you’re not in the mood or are too distracted to drive.

No Worries about Parking: If driving your own car, you would have to look for parking space and probably walk a bit if the closest parking to your destination is full. With a limo service, you are dropped off at the entrance and picked from the same spot when you are done.

Keep the Group Together: Letting everyone find their own means of transport means that people will arrive at different times. With a limo service and depending on the arrangement with the group, the driver can pick up everyone from different locations. For larger groups there are 50 passenger party bus charters that not only act as transport but can also be a place for partying and relaxation after the event. You’ll be able to travel together and arrive at the same time, so there are no delays as a result of waiting for others to arrive. You can also engage in conversation and enjoy each other’s company.

These are cost-effective and afford you comfort, and the VIP feel. The driver should know the area and the routes to your destination so that you don’t have to worry about getting lost. It is worth the money if the right service is selected.

Ergonomic Inventions throughout History

Since the  distant past, man has sought his comfort in handling his tools all this with the purpose of finding a better precision, scope, mobility, force, etc.  From the first rock tools to the most modern ergonomic mouse and keyboard, we made great strides throughout history.


Prehistoric man adapted his tools and weapons to facilitate their use in hunting (projectile points, spear), harvesting (baskets) and fishing (hooks, plumb).

In this sense, it can be said that hunting, fishing, and agriculture were the first occupations of labor.

However, all these day-to-day activities of older populations were the first steps for innovations in ergonomics throughout history. The latter is the product of a long process of analysis, research and development.

With this we realize that the concept of ergonomics began to apply from previous years and today we can realize that it is not easy to adapt effectively to the work process, therefore it is necessary to adapt the work to us.

That the application of ergonomic principles is desirable and necessary, because of the undoubted increases in productivity that can be achieved while the best use is made of the abilities, skills, and abilities of human beings.

19th Century

wojciech-bogumil-jastrzebowskiThe first time the term of ergonomics was used was in 1857, by the Polish scientist Wojciech Bogumil Jastrzebowskl, in his writing “Science of Labor”, which deals with truths taken from nature, but was still very far from reaching the content Accurate given a hundred years later by the English.

Ergonomics as a multidisciplinary science has not emerged spontaneously but has been the fruit of a long evolution, developed through the analysis of work situations, seeking an adaptation of the work and environment surrounding the man who performs an activity.

20th Century

Jules Amar, at the beginning of the 20th century, provides the basis of ergonomics by investigating static and dynamic muscle contractions.

He is concerned with the problems of fatigue, environmental ergonomics, temperature, noise and illumination and establishes the first research laboratory of physical work.

In World War I (1914-1918), the British government was concerned about the fatigue of the workers in the armament factories. Physiologists and psychologists conducted various investigations that were aimed at studying the improvements of workers.

In World War II (1939-1945), aircraft designs and cabinets caused a high number of human errors, caused by excessive physical and mental fatigue, due to the correct reading of the devices.

For the solution of these problems, multidisciplinary teams were created with engineers, psychologists, physiologists, anthropometrists and others. As a result, the “rational ergonomics” of aeronautical materials arises, and ergonomics specialists are hired.

From the application in the military material, one passes to the industrial material, where emerges an ergonomics with multiple disciplines.

The English psychologist Hywel Murrell defined ergonomics as the “set of scientific studies of the interaction between man and his working environment”.

Modern Times

In April 1959, the International Association of Ergonomics (IEA) was created in Stockholm Sweden, which has registered 33 federated societies and its function is to promote ergonomics at an international level.

The objective of the IEA is to bring together organizations and stakeholders in ergonomic research, through the promotion and organization of other activities.

Its main objectives are: to establish international contacts between people working in the field of ergonomics and to promote the knowledge and practice of ergonomics at international level and in developing regions, to cooperate with international associations to develop the practice and application of ergonomics in the industrial sector and in other areas of interest, besides promoting scientific research, rewarding future developments of ergonomics.

Learn the Business of Invention

Inventors usually perceive themselves as pioneers in their own field. To some extent, that may be true. However, you must understand that you will not be setting out on your own for the sake of pure knowledge and innovation. Rather, prospective inventors need to understand that they have to treat their inventions as they would any new business venture. It’s important to understand the invention definition in business.  This is because essentially that is what we do – the very process of inventing is a form of business.

Learning the trade is the first step. Like with any industry, you will need to give yourself a proper education on how the business of invention works. This is crucial because you cannot go around spending money without having a clear understanding of the basic processes.

You will need to pay particular attention to the patenting process. You need to understand how your idea can eventually lead to royalty payments. Basically, you need to know how your ideas can be transformed into a prototype and how that can reach your target market. Memorize the steps by heart, as that will most likely be your bread and butter for the years to come.
