What is an online desk assessment?
Online desk assessments are a great way to find out whether your workstation set-up is causing or contributing to pain and discomfort. Common problem areas include the lower back, neck or wrist.
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).
How does it 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.
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.
All online desk assessments are carried out by our chartered physiotherapists. They have specialist training in occupational health, ergonomics and health and safety.
How much does it cost?
30 minute online desk assessment appointments cost £45 for self-pay clients when booking online or over the phone. Online desk assessments are not currently covered by private medical insurers.
