The Revamped Work-from-Home Toolbox
Posted on April 30, 2021 | in Ergonomics
It’s been a year with most of the world working from home. Have you set up a comfortable place to focus, or are you still operating from whichever space in your home is quietest?
How are you feeling physically after working from home for a year?
Working in strange places and awkward positions for long periods of time does more than just create kinks in your back, it can result in a full-blown musculoskeletal disorder (MSD). MSDs are painful disorders of the muscles, nerves, tendons, ligaments, joints, cartilage, or spinal discs, and they progress over time.
It’s important to know how to prevent the risks that lead to musculoskeletal disorders now to save yourself from future injury.
That’s where our Work-from-Home Toolbox comes in.
