Ergonomic Consultation

Did you know the average person sits for approximately 10 hours per day? Between work, driving, resting and leisure activities, substantial time spent sitting can have a profoundly negative effect on your neuromusculoskeletal system. So profound, in fact, that experts believe excessive sitting can actually increase your mortality risk. Ergonomics can help change that. Sitting is as hard on your spine as sugar is on your teeth.

Ergonomics is a branch of science, the goal of which is to evaluate the human body’s abilities and limitations and improve interaction with environments, products and systems. Often, ergonomics involves designing spaces and furniture to better accommodate the human structure. At Revolution Chiropractic, our ergonomic consultations are an invaluable tool for improving your interaction with your Miami, Queensland work space, so you can maintain a healthier neuromusculoskeletal system.

What to Expect With an Ergonomic Consultation

In Australia, experts estimate the total cost of work-related physical injuries and illnesses hovers around $34 billion annually. Whether you are an employer or employee, Dr. Mark Illguth’s ergonomic consultations can help you reduce workplace-associated injuries and physical decline.

With an ergonomic consultation, we’ll help you and your employees improve your physical interaction with your environment and everything it contains. Seating, desks, positioning of electronics, work space design and body positioning are all evaluated, as well as the amount of time you typically spend sitting. We’ll help you identify risk factors, develop effective solutions and offer ongoing support for your organization.

Health Benefits of Ergonomic Consultation

Ergonomic consultations can provide the staff of any organization with a variety of health benefits, including:

Researchers have confirmed that employees who use ergonomic desks feel less stressed and fatigued throughout the workday. These improvements translate directly to improved employee morale and increased productivity.

Frequently Asked Questions

The majority of workplace safety programs address acute injuries, such as chemical exposure, slips, falls and lacerations. Very few safety programs address the long-term musculoskeletal complications that can arise from repetitive activities, overuse, excessive sitting and exertion. Ergonomic consultations identify risk factors for long-term employee health complications and help you implement effective solutions to minimize those risks.

Yes! Employees play a central role in an ergonomic consultation because they provide critical feedback about their daily working environment and how they perform within it. We’ll ask questions concerning fatigue levels, comfort levels, perceived safety issues, time spent sitting and lifting techniques, among others.

We’ll then begin the process of gathering objective data. This comprehensive evaluation allows us to fully understand your current workplace ergonomics so we can formulate effective solutions.
