Ergonomic Assessments

Ergonomic Assessment

General Advice

MPPFG has the expertise to assist and audit patients’ physical work environments. Through our ergonomic consultancy services, we can make recommendations to prevent the negative influence that poor ergonomics, prolonged keyboard use and desk-bound postural strain can have on patient’s conditions. These include conditions such as:

  • Neck and back pain
  • Headache
  • Sciatica
  • Overuse conditions of the forearms, wrists and hands
  • Muscular stress and tension

Your physiotherapist can provide general advice and alert you to changes that are required to improve your business and home office workstations. Some patients will, however, require a worksite visit that provides a more detailed analysis and helps to tailor ergonomic solutions for the individual.

Worksite Visits

This involves an arranged site visit to your work and/or home office to audit the suitability of your workstation and the prescription of necessary changes to optimise your ergonomics and work processes, thereby preventing ongoing strain or injury.

MPPFG’s worksite visits are currently outsourced to our business partner Workout. For workplace ergonomic visits please contact Sarah Clark from Workout directly via email or via phone on 0418 598 493.

Sarah is currently conducting home based workstation assessments via video conferencing in accordance with COVID-19 working restrictions.
