Ergonomic Assessment

Ergonomics studies the relationship between people and their work environment. It is very important to optimise the ergonomic set-up within the working environment to avoid injuries, aches and pains.

Many injuries occur due to faulty work ergonomics, including:

  • Back Pain
  • Neck Pain
  • Headaches
  • Wrist Pain
  • Repetitive Strain Injury
  • Pins and Needles/Numbness in Hands and Fingers

At Bray Physiotherapy, as part of determining the cause of your presenting pains, we provide individual workstation assessments complying with up to date Health and Safety Regulations.

This includes:

  • Correct back and neck postures when sitting or standing
  • Correct monitor height and viewing distance
  • Optimum keyboard positioning
  • Relevance of regular breaks from sitting
  • Correct chair/desk height ratio
  • Use of ergonomic tools e.g. lumbar supports for your back
  • Recommendations on workstation layout
  • Advice on up-to-date ergonomic equipment
