Workplace Ergonomic Center Program

Located in Manhattan's Union Square, NYC


The Egonomic Center provides individualized workstation assessments with practical hands on posture, alignment and movement coaching.

Our goal is to help patients feel and work better by creating a dynamic work space and teaching proper sitting and standing mechanics. We are partnered with Creative Office Pavilion to offer a wide array of Herman Miller Chairs, Desks, and Technology support.

A Three-Step Approach

We begin with a 45 minute evaluation. This ergonomic assessment is the basis of our program and informs our recommendations. This evaluation is broken down into three parts:

Workplace Assessment

An assessment of current workspace and work tools using detailed photos. The required photos should include pictures of patient's chair and 3 photos of patient sitting at desk from 3 angles: 

  • Side profile
  • Behind view
  • Wide angle that includes the entire work area

 

Sitting and Standing Evaluation

A JFPT therapist will assess the patient's sitting and standing posture, movement tendencies and daily pain points. Special attention will be directed to the patient's work environment and its affects on alignment, core connection, lower extremity support and upper extremity position.

 

Recommendation

Following the work place assessment, patients are coached on how to create a more dynamic work place promoting healthier posture, better alignment, and efficiency. The session includes the dynamics of Sitting, Standing and Moving in the office and how these dynamics can be exercised and customized to fit the patient's work life. Each patient will be educated on chair and desk dynamics. Monitor position with particular attention to visual deficiency. Further evaluation will be given to assess how well the current desk environment can be adjusted.
