Ergonomics is the science of how an individual interacts with their workstation.

The expert physiotherapists at Manchester Physio provide ergonomic assessments on behalf of small, medium and large businesses. Our ergonomic assessments look at individuals, the work they do and the workstations at which they work. Ergonomic Assessments are provided in order to flag up current causes of problems and / or flag up potential future causes of problems before they arise.

Manchester Physio can provide ergonomic assessments for all types of workstation across all industries. We commonly provide assessments, recommendations and reports for the following workstations:
  • Office � Display Screen Equipment
  • Office � Telephone Operative
  • Laboratory � Microscope
  • Factory � Production Line
  • Factory � Packing
  • Driver � Driving Position
The ergonomic workstation assessments are made up of parts:
  • Subjective Assessment
    This part of the assessment takes place in a private room. The purpose of the subjective assessment is to gather information about the workstation, daily tasks and problems to date.

  • Objective Assessment
    This part of the assessment takes place at the workstation. The physiotherapist will assess how tasks are performed, how equipment is used and ways in which potential risks can be eliminated or reduced.

  • Report
    Following the assessment the ergonomic assessment report is prepared by the physiotherapist. The report details issues that were raised during the assessment and actions required in order to improve the ergonomic s of the workstation. If any equipment is recommended suppliers will be recommended in the report.

"I had been having back problems for years and tried so many different treatments but with no success. I saw a physio at Manchester Physio and felt an improvement after just 2 sessions. I would recommend anyone needing a physiotherapist here!"
