Our physiotherapists had the pleasure of sharing their expertise at the MFAA National 2015 Convention.
Our team was invited to share their insights and expertise on health, exercise and fitness. A common query was the importance of appropriate workplace set-up to avoid issues such as back pain, neck and shoulder pain, and headaches.
Our physiotherapists highlighted their main key ergonomic concepts including:
- Positioning the computer screen at eye level and at approximately one arms-length away
- Using an adjustable chair so feet are firmly on the floor and knees clear the front of the chair
- Using a lumbar roll
- Positioning the keyboard on the desk so that wrists and forearms are supported
- Taking regular micro-breaks every 20 – 30 minutes
- Regular exercise with the aim of at least 2.5 hours of moderate exercise per week
It was fantastic to assist so many enthusiastic individuals help keep active and injury free!
