Ergonomic workstation with multiple devices.
Ensuring that the environment meets the physical size, abilities, and needs of the person is the keystone of ergonomics and central to providing successful accommodations. We can help you prevent injuries and improve efficiency and productivity by examining your workstations and the tools utilized, along with job tasks and essential functions.
When we work with someone who has already developed a work-related injury, we help them understand what may have caused or contributed to the problem, examine their overall environment, work style and habits, and offer strategies for reducing these contributing factors.
We provide all of the ergonomics solutions for injured employees with the Workers Compensation program at San Francisco State University and have extensive experience working with a wide range of jobs and work environments.
- We welcome the "tough situations"—sit/stand, working in recline, restricted or no-hand use, limited range of motion, hard-to-implement medical restrictions, etc.
- Our knowledge of assistive technology broadens the number of hardware and software tools and strategies that we can draw on.
- Our ability to modify or customize equipment helps us offer the best solutions—we are not limited by what is on the market. No need to buy everything new: modify that old desk to make it work for you.
- Our broad collection of alternate input devices allows for hands-on trials. We don't point to pictures in a catalogue or recommend something that the end user has not seen or tried out.
- We have a stock of office chairs that we can bring to the worksite—no need to travel to our lab.
- We work with computer access, as well as the use of other tools and equipment.
- We primarily work in office and home office settings, but have also consulted in warehouse and manufacturing environments.
- We can set up, configure, and provide training in what we recommend.
- We have relationships with a large number of vendors and know who offers the best service and prices.
