Make sure your workstation works for you

Let’s face it, we all spend a lot of time sitting at our desks, staring at computer screens.

Is your workstation contributing to back, wrist, leg or just general pain?

The Pitt Occupational Therapy Program (@OTPitt) wants to help. Associate Professor Nancy Baker has developed a set of videos, “Computer Ergonomics for U,” on how to diagnose and fix your comfort problems at work.

The series of nine videos addresses issues with all aspects of workstations, including chairs, keyboards and input devices, like a mouse, trackball or touchpad. The videos also address ergonomic concerns when using laptops, bifocals or standing desks.
