Online Desk Assessment

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.

How does online physiotherapy work?

Our online physiotherapy platform Telehab means we can run secure video consultations with our clients. The full desk assessment process, advice and recommendations can all be delivered effectively via video.

We take a look at your desk arrangement, assess your working patterns, and organisation of work tasks. This enables us to provide practical recommendations to improve comfort and productivity when working from home. It also helps us to determine whether you could benefit from assistive technology (e.g specialist chairs).

All online desk assessments are carried out by our chartered physiotherapists. They have specialist training in occupational health, ergonomics and health and safety.

How do I prepare for an online desk assessment?

You will need something stable to hold your camera so that we can see your desk set-up. This may involve getting someone at home to help you.

Are online desk assessments covered by private medical insurance?

Online desk assessments are not currently covered by private medical insurers.
