Workstation assessments, also known as Ergonomics, measure the relationship between people, their environment and the tasks they perform. In order to work in the most effective manner, it is essential to consider all the aspects of your working area.
Our assessment services take everything in your office into consideration when assessing your workspace; from the height of your chair and desk, to the position of your mouse and phone, and even how the lighting and heat levels affect you.
It is not only a employer’s legal responsibility but also a valuable tool to ensure maximum comfort for their staff. In turn, this minimises the risk of injury, thus increasing productivity in the work place. It is also beneficial for a specialist to undertake the Ergonomic Assessment in cases where an individual has pain symptoms or a diagnosed injury. This will help to ensure that your workstation and environment are not contributing to your symptoms or impacting upon your recovery.
The HSE rules regarding DSE (Display Screen Equipment) equipment require organisations to conduct a risk assessment for employees who use this equipment on a daily basis, they use it for at least an hour at a time, or they are unable to do their job without using it.

After being educated on the most important aspects of your workstation, you will be shown exercises by a rehabilitation consultant. These exercises will help you to prevent injury and discomfort at your workstation, and will ensure that you remain engaged, active and productive in your work.
It is easy to sit incorrectly in the work place, and the impact of this can prove very costly. It is important to make sure you take the effort to employ effective ergonomic measure at work to make your company more profitable and your work force more productive:

I have used various services at Perfect Balance Clinic for over three years on and off for a variety of issues as I have been training and picking up injuries, as well as rehab work that needed doing. I have found them to be very professional, as you would expect, however the really interesting thing is their flexibility. They are always able to see me at short notice and fit me in and secondly they are very quickly able to identify the issue I have and use a variety of techniques, which doesn’t limit them to one course of action.Over many years I have used a variety of therapists and am now confident that whenever I have a problem they are just a phone call away and are able to help quickly.
Perfect Balance Clinic provided a solution to what was a long-term unresolved back problem. They brought me back to fitness with expert treatment and have since provided a first rate maintenance regime accommodating sessions around my busy work schedule which has kept me fit and active. I have recommended them to a number of friends and colleagues
I have been using Perfect Balance Clinic for several years, as have members of my family and other friends. Perfect Balance Clinics treatments go way beyond what one might expect – always thoughtful and taking into account how one lives life and work. Their knowledge of the body has also been helpful in identifying ailments in family members that seasoned medics have missed. I can’t recommend them highly enough.
There are very few musculoskeletal practitioners who have the knowledge, skills and ability to think deeply about each individual they treat.
