Remote Ergonomic Assessments
Home office workstations are very convenient, however they’re usually made up of whatever happens to be available, with little or no attention spent on its ergonomic layout. Working on ‘out of the box’ home office furniture, couches or coffee tables may seem adequate at first, but it’s usually not long before you start experiencing neck, shoulder, wrist or low back pain. Our virtual ergonomic assessments are done remotely and include a review of any injuries you may have developed, a review of your workstation, where we look at your set-up and how you interact with your workstation. This may include altering the actual workspace, changing workflow patterns, possibly purchasing small pieces of equipment or doing some mild stretches and exercises to help alleviate the pain you’re experiencing.

This is especially effective when combined with an ergonomic assessment and/or a few targeted exercises. Massage Therapy sessions are 15, 30 or 60 minutes, to fit the time you have available at work.
