A dynamic approach to preventing Repetitive Strain Injuries (RSI) and Computer Vision Syndrome (CVS)

 

Ergonomics Training Seminars

In our ergonomics seminars we train participants in equipment usage and practical ways to improve workstation setup. We emphasize understanding and improving the ways we use our bodies, because efficient body mechanics are critical for preventing and healing repetitive strain injury (RSI). Our teaching style makes body mechanics easy to learn and practice.

Our classes are fun, engaging and interactive. We receive overwhelmingly positive feedback from clients who discover inspiring new ways to work pain free. Participants report no longer feeling sore or physically exhausted at the end of the workday. Our approach is simple and insightful, with exercises that are easy to do while working, and fun to share with colleagues.

Each seminar includes illustrated handouts with easy-to-follow instructions. Detailed descriptions follow.

Safe Use of the Keyboard and Other Hazardous Equipment

It is a well-known fact that improper workstation setup and usage are major causes of Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI). Dramatically improve the way you feel at the end of the day by making simple changes. You'll learn to align and move your body and make your setup work for you. Topics include:


Seminar 3: Relief for Tired Eyes

Ever go home from work with a headache or feeling fatigued? Do you sometimes have difficulty reading the computer screen or concentrating? You could be suffering from eyestrain, even if you aren't consciously aware of it. Learn why eyestrain happens and how to prevent it. We'll discuss:
