Ergonomics @ Home

Ergonomics @ Home

It is critical for companies to ensure that your working at home area has been optimized from an ergonomics perspective.  Poorly designed work areas can cause neck, back, shoulder and wrist injuries within 1-2 weeks.  These injuries normally creep in slowly and can be hard to resolve.  It is well worth the time to have a specialist review your set-up in the early stages.
