Students spend a significant amount of time working at computers and other devices. 

Without the education or equipment that might be provided in a workplace, students may be at an even higher risk.  Not only are they using equipment designed for adult sizing, but they are exposed to poor postures and prolonged periods of computer use even earlier in life which may result in long term developmental and health effects. 

This consult is designed to provide students, big and small, with the knowledge of how to work safely

A chair is a significant investment.  Often, chairs are selected based on cost or appearance but this can be a costly mistake.  It is important to select one that is a suitable fit for your stature and provides the features that will allow you to adopt sound ergonomic practices. 

 

You will be asked to provide photographs and measurements.  The consultant will review your features  and preferences to provide advice on chairs with suitable fit and features.  A video call may or may not be required. 

 

This consult includes;

  • Chair Fit recommendations

    • Relevant chair specifications to suit individual stature

    • Samples of chairs

  • Follow-up support, through the process of selecting a chair

  • Follow-up on acquisition of chair to discuss adjustments and setting it up suitably,

 

Office ergonomics can be complicated!  Figuring out which products to choose and how to piece them all together can be confusing.   Purchasing a product without consideration of ergonomic factors could result in the creation of strain on the body and end up a waste of money.  Save yourself money and discomfort. 

 

This 15 minute consult is designed to address a specific question and/or provide input into equipment (other than chair) purchase. 

 

This consult includes;

  • Email summary of our discussion and reference to any products discussed.
