Remote Office Ergonomic Assessment
Telecommuting is becoming more and
more popular with 80% to 90% of the US workforce reporting they would like to
telework at least part time. Unfortunately there are few services to help
people set up their home office to be productive and pain free. Many
people just go to Amazon or the local big box stationary/electronics/furniture
store and buy the cheapest desk and chair they can find or simply use their
laptop at the kitchen table (that’s what I did). The problem is if the
workstation is not set up correctly it can cause pain and potentially
debilitating injury. Getting a qualified ergonomist to help set up your home
office can be almost impossible! Even if you can find someone to visit,
scheduling and appointment can be slow and expensive. Until Now!
Site Solutions, a network of specially trained Physical Therapists, has created a remote ergonomic assessment to solve this problem. A remote office ergonomic assessment is a great alternative for those who telecommute or are not near a consultant who can provide an on-site assessment. We request pictures of you in the workstation that allow us to see how you are working and identify potential risks. Using web-cams and a GoToMeeting hook up to we can then review the pictures to identify potential risks and work with you to create a pain free and functional home office!
Simply send us pictures of you in the workstation (to see examples click below) for our therapist to review and appointment booking information will be sent so you can schedule an on-line assessment.
Prior to the appointment a link to an on-line meeting site will be sent to you. At the appointment time simply click on the link and we will be connected! Our therapist will ask you about your work activities to understand what you do and how you interact with the workstation. Then using a screen sharing we review your pictures to identify any risk factors. Potential solutions to those problems are then discussed. Ideally we can teach you to use the equipment you already have to support a comfortable and functional workstation. If equipment is needed we can make recommendations based on what will work for your situation
written report with your pictures, recommended changes and equipment (if
needed) will be completed during the assessment and sent to you within 48 hours
of the evaluation. Vendor information can be provided if needed.
A remote ergonomic assessment is $175 and includes picture analysis, an online consult and written report.
