In-depth, one-to-one consultations to prevent or manage repetitive strain injuries (RSI) and identify factors causing inappropriate posture. Includes a scientifically designed RSI Survey, and adjusting the workstation set-up according to office ergonomics standards and each employee’s body size and job demands.
