Ergonomics

The origins of the word 'Ergonomic' comes from two Greek words - ‘Ergon’ meaning to work and ‘Nomos’ meaning Law. Nowadays we associate it with fitting the equipment and task to the user and not the other way round. There are laws governing ergonomics and companies now have to comply ensuring their workers and safe and comfortable in their working environment.

Who needs a DSE assessment?

Problems commonly seen

We offer a service that visits the office and completes workstation assessments offering advice, equipment alterations and reports.

There are two levels of assessment available:

DSE Compliance Assessment

This is a basic workstation assessment to ensure the minimum requirements are being met. It also highlights any potential issues. Conducted by a physiotherapist who is very well placed to highlight potential musculoskeletal problems. A basic checklist / report is completed.

DSE Remedial Assessment

These are detailed assessments that are suitable for individuals who are suffering with musculoskeletal issues or who are struggling with aspects of their work environment. This may be following an accident, a period of illness or through chronic illness or disability. These are carried out by highly experienced physiotherapists who are able to offer physiotherapy advice as well as Ergonomic resolution. A full report is completed

Car position assessment

We also offer car seat assessments. We get a subjective history of any problems from the client and then assess their position in the car seat. This is incredibly useful as many people do not realise how bad their seated posture is in the car and often it is a cause or aggravating factor for back pain and sciatica.

We stock a range of wedges and back supports to help if required.
