Workspace Week – Work Well from Anywhere

By August 19, 2022Health News

For many of us working from home has remained a regular part of our work week as it offers us flexibility, less travel related time and expenses and often a little longer in bed in the morning.

So, what’s the downside? 

Unfortunately, a survey performed by the ACTU found that 42% of Australians working from home still do not have a suitable workstation or the correct equipment.

We are using Workspace Week (22-28 August) as an opportunity to remind our patients about a few simple steps to improve their home office set up.

  1. Use an adjustable office chair that allows your knees to be slightly lower than your hips
  2. Sit with an upright posture, with shoulders relaxed and feet flat on the floor
  3. Adjust your monitor height to eye level and monitor distance at arm’s length from where you are sitting
  4. Consider investing in a sit-stand desk to reduce spinal strain
  5. Take regular postural breaks
