Physiotherapy East Sheen Offers Ergonomic Assessments

Yes, Physiotherapy East Sheen offers ergonomic assessments that are specifically designed to fit the individual needs of an employee. A physiotherapist is an ideal professional to conduct ergonomic assessments as they are well trained in the biomechanical functions of the human body and the effect that different stresses can have on it. A physiotherapist will take into account the specific job demands of the individual and how their physical capabilities match up with the tasks that they have to perform, taking into consideration any existing injuries or symptoms.

Office workers often have to spend most of their working day sat in front of computers and screens, hunched over keyboards and mouses. This can lead to poor posture, neck and shoulder strain and wrist pain. Workplace ergonomics aims to optimize the workplace environment for an individual’s physical capabilities, in order to reduce discomfort and injury. It is a good investment for any business, as the reduced risk of workplace injury leads to increased productivity and less lost time from work.

A Physiotherapy East Sheen ergonomic assessment is a thorough evaluation of the workstation set up and the individual’s ability to do their job comfortably and safely. The physiotherapist will identify the potential risks and make recommendations to reduce these hazards, including advice on any equipment that might need replacing, additional or repair. They will also advise on training the staff in any manual handling skills that might be necessary to ensure safety and reduce strain.
