Why get your workstation evaluated by an occupational therapist?
A well adjusted workstation helps prevent musculoskeletal pain due to bad posture, bad habits, or poor use of equipment.
A poorly adjusted workstation that disregards ergonomic principles can cause:
- Lumbar and cervical pain
- Carpal tunnel pain or numbness
- Pain due to bad posture
Whether directly or indirectly, a poorly adjusted workstation can affect your comfort and energy levels, your productivity, cause visual fatigue, as well as reduce your ability to concentrate.
Remote and Self-Employed Workers
Working from home has become prevalent in Quebec. An occupational therapist can help you transition to remote working, whether your situation is permanent or temporary.
Service for Businesses
Several studies have concluded that an employee’s well-being is directly related to their productivity, creativity and health. For the business, the studies found an increase in overall performance, a better employee retention rate, as well as a decrease in absenteeism.
