Office Ergonomic Consultation
Many office workers suffer from spinal pain, eyestrain, carpel tunnel syndrome, and a myriad of other musculoskeletal disorders. This results in missed days of work and decreased productivity. Simply having "ergonomic" equipment is not enough. Without proper set-up and education, such equipment offers little advantage to the worker. A consultation can show you ways to optimize use of your existing equipment and make recommendations for new equipment in a cost effective manner.

Healthcare and Laboratory
Nursing Aides are the second most frequent profession to experience a debilitating back injury. Registered Nurses rank number six. There is large, unfulfilled need in healthcare for ergonomic solutions.
Laboratory science workers often have to maintain awkward postures for prolonged periods, and use tools that require a delicate pinch with duration. Contact Dr. Sevillano to discover how an ergonomic consultation can help with your healthcare or laboratory science job.
Exercise As Preventative Medicine
Stretches and exercises can be performed during the work day as "ergo breaks". Participating in an ergonomic stretching and exercise program can help to improve circulation, counter muscle imbalances from static/awkward postures, and decrease muscular discomfort from repetitive motions and forceful tasks.
"Train the Trainer" is an effective approach for management. Training seminars and power point presentations are available for administrators and employees.
