Ergonomics Ah!

So today I went for an ergonomic training and assessment. 


Never did this before. 


It was pretty awesome. 


The person had 4 degrees in ergonomics and really seemed to know what they were talking about. 


They got me set up in a special ergonomic chair with a footrest, bio-design mouse, and task lighting.


I tell you that I never sat so straight, perfectly contoured, and completely comfortable. 


They almost had to pry my butt out of that chair after I test drove it for over an hour in training. 


OMG, there is a difference. 


Don’t need carpal tunnel.


Don’t need sciatica. 


Don’t need neck, shoulder, and back pain. 


I even learned that the standing desks can be BAD for you–they put undue stress on your musculature and may actually result in a notable DECREASE in concentration and productivity. 


Anyway, from the stupid chairs that I’ve seen most people have–and the lousy posture they sit with–I’d recommend seeing the ergonomist. 😉
