What is Ergonomics and Why is it Important: Ergonomics is the scientific study of designing the job and workplace to fit the worker, keeping in mind their capabilities and limitations. Ergonomics combines the knowledge from other scientific disciplines like anatomy and physiology, biomechanics, engineering, psychology, and statistics to ensure that workplace designs complement the strengths of people and minimize the effects of their limitations.

Health Effects of Sitting: Computer workstation ergonomics cannot be discussed without also discussing sitting and the adverse health effects it has on us. With the advances in technology over the past two decades, we are now sitting more than ever before. On average, we spend about 9.3 hours a day sitting, while only 7.7 hours sleeping.

Background Anatomy: Postural distortion syndrome can include a number of postural deviations from good posture that can impair joint function and stability. It compromises of the coordination between bodily segments, increases in energy demands during completion of any given task, reduces force transfer through the kinetic chain and increases the overall risk of injury.

Daily Routine: Just think about your daily routine and how much time you spend sitting. If you’re like most people that have an office job, after you get up in the morning, you sit down to have breakfast, you sit down in the car on your commute to work, you sit all day at work including your lunch break, you sit on your drive home from work, you sit to eat dinner, and then you likely sit on the couch to watch television, read, or surf the internet.

Active Population: Some of you may get an hour of exercise at some point in your day, but it is easy to see that most of your day is spent sitting. Recent research has shown that this type of sedentary lifestyle is detrimental to your health, even if you exercise or live an “active lifestyle.”

Proper Workstation Ergonomic Set-up: Proper ergonomics of your workstation is vital in reducing the strain on the body. We can’t stress this enough to the desk worker as the best long-term solution in preventing musculoskeletal pain and injuries.

Avoiding/Preventing Injury with Exercise: A detailed corrective exercise strategy that you can implement to reduce the aches and pains of sitting.

Self-Ergonomic Assessment: Perform this detailed assessment of your workstation to guide you on the proper corrections that are easy-to-implement and extremely effective.

Self-Physical Assessment: This step-by-step assessment will give you insights on physical ailments such as carpal tunnel syndrome, low back pain, headaches, TMJ dysfunction and much more. There are also corrective strategies for these conditions.

Food for Thought: How Our Diet Affects Inflammation. “The Surgeon General’s Report on Nutrition and Health, states that heart disease, cancer, and strokes are the three leading causes of death in America, totaling close to 75% of all deaths. We are also told that these are diet-related diseases. The Report concludes, “one personal choice seems to influence long-term health prospects more than any other: what we eat”.
