Working From Home: Video Workstation Assessments

Are you working from home full-time due to coronavirus?

With more and more of us now working from home, we want to help you avoid the aches and pains that come from a less than ideal working environment putting undue stress on your body.

Even small adjustments to your workstation can make a huge difference to your comfort, and, with it being unclear when we might be returning to offices ful time it’s important to prevent any unnecessary harm or injury to your body during this time.

Here are 9 desk-based exercises you can try at home.

What is an Video Workstation Assessment?

Over the last few months since many of us have been working from home many people are experiencing aches and pains that they haven't had before due to their new way of working. Whether you have a home office or a chair pulled up to the kitchen table, spending long hours in awkward positions can do long lasting damage to your body. To enable you to get the right set up for your home working, we are offering cost effective video home workstation assessments.

We can conduct these assessments via Zoom or Facetime, it is your preference. All we need is a photograph of you sitting at your workstation taken from the side which we can analyse prior our assessment.

Our video homeworking assessments are carried out by experienced workstation assessors who are also experienced musculoskeletal physiotherapists so they have a wealth of knowledge about the body and the effects of posture and lack of movement.

During the assessment our Chartered Physiotherapists will watch how you work looking at repetitive movements and posture. They will advise on the best layout of your equipment (screen, keyboard, chair, etc.), answer any queries that you have, provide adjustments to your posture and equipment and share desk-based exercises to keep your body moving. If additional equipment is required they can advise on what is suitable for you.

The assessments are £70 each and include an email summary of our recommendations.
