Ergonomics

Ergonomics is a way of living. It’s the process of arranging and moulding products you use and the the place you live or work in such a way that it fits your system perfectly; such that while doing every task, your body takes more of a natural position and is not getting strained in any way.

 

Ergonomics allows for a strain, stress and pain free life

Why is Ergonomics Necessary

In modern digital age, most of us are attuned to working on laptops and PCs for long hours without much physical activity. Our lifestyles - both at home and work have become immune to the risk of musculoskeletal disorders. Such disorders cause pain of varying degrees in muscles, joints, bones or ligaments in limbs or back.

 

Other related cause apart from prolonged immobilization is repetitive movement or muscle overuse. Bad body posture, working in an awkward position, exposure to constant vibration and physical trauma can also cause damage to the musculoskeletal system, resulting in one or many of the following issues:

  • Neck pain

  • Shoulder pain

  • Back pain

  • Repetitive Strain Injury - RSI

  • Hand and wrist tendonitis

  • Tennis elbow

  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

  • Swelling and stiffness

  • Sprains & tears in extreme conditions

 

Looking at the above trend, it becomes imperative for us to adopt ergonomic ways of living both at work and at home. The good news is, people have seen significant improvement in their condition after acquiring ergonomic habits.

For people who don’t yet have chronic pains but see minor symptoms, shifting to an ergonomic lifestyle will proactively help avoid these issues cropping up in future, and lead a happy pain-free life.
