Ergonomics is all about the relationship between you, your workstation, and your job demands. It is vital that your work station works for you rather than you having to adapt your own postures and movements for your equipment and environment. At Body Wellness we recognize the important role a properly setup workstation plays in keeping our clients productive, healthy, and happy . Living and working in the Washington, DC area is almost synonymous with long hours and intense work loads. Spending so many hours a day on computers, phones, and tablets can create micro injuries that over time lead to bigger problems. Even the healthiest, most active individuals are at risk for work related pain and injury when working with faulty posture or in a poorly designed environment.
How might you benefit from an ergonomic assessment?
Our certified ergonomic specialists carefully assess the work areas you utilize as well as posture, repetitive movements, and equipment fit and setup. We can then provide comprehensive education and maintenance strategies that are individualized to you so you have the tools you need to manage your situation for the long term. An ergonomic assessment may include not only an individual workstation assessment, but also analysis of a client’s functional movement strategies. Once our specialists know what your needs are, we provide the solutions you need to feel more comfortable while you’re working and help prevent problems in the long term. Your plan may include education, exercises, recommendations for adjustment of your current equipment, or new equipment if needed to allow your workstation to fit you in the best way possible.
Ergonomic assessments can be done remotely or on site
Our specialists are also available to provide group education to your organization.
