Ergonomic Presentations

What does ergonomic injury mean? 

An ergonomic injury is pain that develops in the musculoskeletal system (muscles, bone, joint or soft tissue pain) or nervous system (nerves pain) that has resulted from repetitive movements or over-straining when in the work place.

Our ergonomic specialists at Health2u are able to provide interactive powerpoint presentations to the Occupational Health Team and Employees of the business.  People are often not aware of how pain in their back, neck and arms is commonly down to a poor workstation assessment and simple changes that can be done prevent this problem from happening.  They are also often unaware of exercises that can be carried out at the desk to prevent prolonged poor postures.  The presentations by  include relevant information on what is ergonomics, anatomy of the body, how to set up their workstation optimally at work and home, chair exercises to improve flexibility, core strength and blood supply and how physio treatments can help when pain occurs or if you have suffered an injury or recently had an operation.

To view some short video examples of our presentations please just get in touch and we can send them through.

Information booklets will be available for employees to take home after the presentation.

Why Is Ergonomics Awareness So Important In The Office? 

For most people who work in the office, it involves a lot of sitting down at a desk.  By using the phone in a certain way, the keyboard and mouse in a certain way or twisting / slouching on your chair, it can lead to pains in your back, shoulders, neck, arms, wrists and hands. Ergonomics looks at the way you are working at your desk and we can then advise on posture and changes that can be made and equipment that can be ordered to minimise strains on your body while working.
