- The essential interface for the body and the workstation
- Very precise measures may not seem necessary
- until we see outcomes for the injured worker
- Low Back Pain (n=59) AVERAGE 81% lower frequency, severity
- Neck, Shoulder, Arm and Hand (n=111) AVERAGE 86% improvement
Chair adjustment is the essential interface for the body and the workstation. To use such precise measures for strength and stature may seem unnecessary, until we see how the injured worker responds. In some cases, it may be the difference to continue working at all.
People who reported increasing pain after conventional ergonomic intervention were given this method in a Fortune 500 company. A Follow-up survey was given at least six months after the recommendations were completed. The Low Back Pain Group (n=59) showed an AVERAGE 81% lower frequency and severity of their symptoms, and those with pain in the Neck, Shoulder, Arm and Hand (n=111) reported an AVERAGE 86% reduction in the frequency and severity of their symptoms.
The exact method used to get these results is shown in the following slides.
