Ergonomics

Injury prevention is maximized when tackled from two directions;

  • Assessment & Education
  • Provision of Appropriate Equipment

Assessment & Education

Esperance Physiotherapy provides onsite ergonomic assessment of workstations and can provide advice to project designers on workstation requirements in the planning phase of office setup.

For existing workplaces a professional staff member is available to attend you workplace to observe, measure and advise on optimal office setup, work station layout and appropriate equipment.

In 2005 the Australian Bureau of Statistics found “43% of those injured had received no OH& S training”.

Esperance Physiotherapy provides a range of quality, onsite manual handling and injury prevention workshops. These are often customized for specific workforce requirements.

Sit Stand Tables

Sit Stand Table

These fantastic tables enable you to vary your workstation from a sitting posture to standing posture in a few seconds. Great if different people use the same workstation or if you spend more that a couple of hours sitting per day at the same work station.

A key point for spinal posture injury prevention is creating variability of posture, so different muscles are working and relaxing throughout the day.

Chairs - ScoopScreen Shot 2016 08 01 at 12.34.22 PM

The essence of a good chair is that you sit in balance and therefore can move just as easily forward and backwards, and sit still when you wish. The chairs inspire you to change your position regularly - without even thinking about it. In this way blood circulation is stimulated and you feel better, both mentally and physically.
