Ergonomic Assessments

Comprehensive Office Ergonomic Assessment $395*

This comprehensive assessment is best suited for the client/ employee with complicated physical considerations. The work place is visited and assessed for ergonomic design and effectiveness considering the individual’s subjective reports of pain, discomfort, physical limitations and previous diagnosis. Ergonomic and human factor recommendations are made to optimize effectiveness, safety and comfort.

Where possible, changes are made immediately to the workstation. Working within the funder’s guidelines, recommendations for additional equipment are reported. The individual receives education on biomechanics, correct posture, exercises and stretches.

On-site assessment time is approximately 1.5 hours. An extensive written report is provided within one week of the assessment date.

*Travel Fees Additional, GST Additional
