Ergonomic Workstation Assessments
Prolonged desk-based working has been shown to have several negative impacts upon both the body and mind due to sub-optimal postures. These impacts can be experienced after a short period of time and without action can lead to longer term chronic musculoskeletal issues.
Sustained poor posture can create a cascade of adaptations, which leads to ‘Tissue’ (muscle, tendon, ligaments) and ‘Joint’ stress creating lingering joint or muscle pain.
At some point in their lives, forty percent of people will get Low Back Pain and sixty percent of people will experience neck pain. This is where proper postural dynamics can help alleviate pain, otherwise, it can lead to chronic conditions, such as:
- Degenerative Disc Disease
- Spinal Stenosis
- Rotator cuff injuries
- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
- DeQuervain’s Tenosynivitis
How Does it Work?
An ergonomic assessment can be carried out either in person where the specialist Physio will attend your place of work or remotely online. Our remote workstation assessments are useful for homeworkers.
Once you’ve arranged an appointment you’ll be sent a pre-assessment questionnaire to complete prior to your workstation assessment. Our online workstation assessments include:
- A review of your home working environment and set up
- Assessment of your sitting and/or standing posture at your workstation
- A bespoke video exercise programme sent via our mobile application
- Advice regarding any ergonomic equipment that you may require
- A summary report and recommendations sent to the line manager
Equipment Ordering and Provision
We like to provide solutions for people, solutions that improve function, pain and quality of life. Sometimes in a work environment that can be something as simple as providing a monitor arm or ergonomic mouse. Not only are we able to assess, make recommendations and provide rehab programs, we can also source and provide appropriate equipment for the office environment that will give support, added functionality and comfort.
From laptop stands to standing desks to allow regular postural change, we can provide for all your office needs. We will source, order and fit the equipment to ensure you and your employees get the maximum benefit. Any recommendations made during an assessment can then be put into action in one seamless service ensuring you get the best results as quickly as possible.
