Ergonomic Assessments

“2 out of 3 workers have reported experiencing discomfort and/or pain after working in an office”

Absolute Balance’s Ergonomic Assessments are conducted by Accredited Exercise Physiologists who have specific evidence-based knowledge related to ergonomic design, rehabilitation and prevention of Occupational Overuse Injuries (OOS).

The assessment will focus on 4 key areas:

  • Workstation design – including compliance to Australian Standards and applicable Codes of Practice
  • Biomechanical Principals –repetition, force, volume and exertion at the workstation
  • Ergonomic Equipment – selection and best practice
  • Ergonomic work-flow design – Adjustments to the workstation to suit individual needs

Further time will be provided to individuals that have existing musculoskeletal injuries with basic exercise prescription provided as well as how to mitigate risk for the future.
