Office ergonomics consultation

Ergonomic Assessment, Ergonomics Physiotherapy, Workstation Assessment

We have come a long way from our Stone Age ancestors, in refined offices, sinking into the screen of computers. But has this been healthy?

The answer is, No.

We sit tirelessly in our offices, in uncomfortable chairs which only make it even more difficult. This discomfort then leads to health problems, with muscle aches and then a series of medical conditions.

This does sound scary, but working is of course a part of life. So, now what?

To improve the working conditions, to make it suitable for your comfort, there is a concept called ‘Ergonomics’.

➢ So, what is Ergonomics?

Ergonomics is a study or technique which focuses on designing products and systems, keeping human physiology and psychology in mind.

In a nutshell, it means adjusting the products and services, like chairs for instance to suit the comfort of humans.

Office Ergonomics, therefore, is very important since it is the one place where we are constantly sitting, without much movement.

➢ Why should you focus on Office Ergonomics?

Office ergonomics is very essential because almost half of our day is spent sitting at one place in our workplace. This means we spend most of our active years sitting and working.

Therefore, it can have an effect on our bodies. This effect can be very bad if the ergonomics of the workspace are not comfortable.

Let’s see how badly poor ergonomics affects us;
1. Body muscle fatigue.
2. Bones and joints experience discomfort which evidently leads to pain.
3. This pain can then be converted into serious disorders such as arthritis, gout, etc.
4. Mental irritation and fatigue.
5. Back sprains can again have a harmful effect on your spine.
6. Digestion problems.

➢ Tips and tricks:
a. While purchasing a chair, make sure to check the adjustability of its height.
b. Level the desk, so as to be able to place your arms comfortably without slouching or adjusting them.
c. Make sure that the seat of the chair is comfortable and not sunken in.
d. If installing a footrest, make sure to level it at an adjustable height, not too above or too down. The height of the footrest, therefore, should be adjustable
e. The keyboard tray should be spacious enough to accommodate the mouse and keyboard without cluttering.
f. The mouse you use for the computer should be sensitive and easy to slide around, without causing much pressure on the arm.

There is a lot more to office ergonomics that cannot be accommodated in one blog itself. To know exactly how to set up your office in detail and to discuss any doubts you have about improving your office ergonomics, we make office visits for ergonomic consultation. This involves assessing and making ergonomically friendly all employee-frequented areas such as conference rooms, cafeteria, restrooms, and the most important: workstations.
