Ergonomics Information & Tips
Ergonomics is a very important part of optimal musculoskeletal health. In short, ergonomics seeks to ensure that equipment and technology work in complete agreement with natural human movement and posture. Appliances, power tools, electronics and many other things you use on a daily basis all have considerable research put into them to make sure that they are ergonomically friendly. Your desk, work area, chair and car should all be examined to see that they don’t put any undo strain on your body when you use them.
Putting yourself in an ergonomically correct environment will go a long way toward minimizing the risk of injury down the road. Conditions like carpal tunnel syndrome, lower back pain, neck pain and many others can be avoided in large part if proper ergonomics are practiced.
