During an online ergonomic assessment, we assess your current work from home set-up, including identifying potential hazards and safety concerns. We specifically look at:

 

  • Desk height
  • Desk position
  • Chair adjustments
  • Screen height and positioning
  • Use of mouse, keyboard and other accessories
  • Individual task analysis
  • Trip hazards
  • Lighting, and ease of access

We will also prescribe some simple and cost-effective strategies that can be implemented to address your concerns. This may include equipment recommendations and activity modification. We then produce an individualized report outlining our practical and easy-to-implement recommendations, and a rehabilitation program which focus on increasing mobility and address any muscle strength deficits.

 

These sessions are appropriate for all but may be most beneficial for those with previous or current musculoskeletal injuries or complaints relating to work or posture.
