A poorly set up desk or workstation can cause you pain and discomfort, both at work, and away from the office. You might feel pain anywhere in your body if your desk is set up incorrectly, but tell tale signs are often discomfort or tension in your neck, back or wrists.
Our friendly team of chartered physiotherapists and experienced desk assessors have specialist training in occupational health, ergonomics and health and safety.
If you would like to book, or enquire about arranging 5 or more face-to-face desk assessments for your team, please give client care a call on 033 0333 0435.
Who are desk assessments for?
If you’re suffering with ongoing or recurrent pain, recovering from an injury or have a disability, it is particularly important to make sure your desk set up is right for you.
What can I expect from a desk assessment?
During your desk assessment we will take a detailed clinical and occupational history alongside conducting a workstation assessment, which allows us to provide you with specific ergonomic solutions.
The assessment will be conducted in a private interview room (where possible) and at your workstation. It will include:
- Clinical and occupational history
- Workstation assessment and detailed task analysis
- Postural analysis for all required working task
- Postural training and task management
- Report detailing any suggested modifications
- Sourcing of specialist ergonomic equipment
Why is this relevant for employers?
As an employer, it’s important to help your team stay healthy and comfortable at work. With desks set up safely, you can help reduce sick days and increase productivity.
We offer favourable rates to employers who require 5 or more desks assessed in the same place, on the same day. Get in touch to find out more.
What about home-based desk assessments?
Our online desk assessments via video are a great way to find out whether your workstation set-up is causing or contributing to pain and discomfort while working from home. The most common problem areas to look out for include the lower back, neck or wrist.
They last 30 mins, and cost £45. You can find out more here.
