Event Diary: Ergonomics and You: A workshop and a doctor consultation

Sharing is caring!

Ergonomics is more than a fancy word. It’s more than just “sit up straight” and “don’t slouch!” that we hear so regularly from our parents, doctors and everybody else. So, what is ergonomics, and how does it play a role in our lives? It’s a fact that bad posture can lead to bad health. How you sit, how you stand and how you walk all play a part in our health. But, there’s more to it than just that. Ergonomics is a science. It explains how we can avoid spinal problems, and other conditions that can develop due to poor posture, poor choice of chair, even a poor choice of bed. Spinal injuries are a common sight nowadays, with tens of millions of workers being affected every day. However, there are certain things you can do, to prevent pain, and to keep fit and healthy. At iKeva, we believe that good health at the workplace is important and, staying healthy now is more important than ever.

So, we have a plan. We’ve organized a workshop on Ergonomics in Hyderabad, at both the Banjara Hills and Hitech City, iKeva workspaces! Everything from choosing the right furniture, to keeping the right posture and plenty of exercises to keep your back on the straight and narrow, will be covered in the workshop, which will be held on the

11th of February from 12:00 PM onwards at iKeva Banjara Hills.

12th of February from 12:00 PM onwards at iKeva Hitec City

Also, we’ve got a professional of Spine Care and Ergonomics to give you a check-up! Dr. G.N Sumanth, the Head of Department, Physiotherapy at Yashoda Hospitals will be hosting the session and, you can get a consultation with him after the workshop is concluded!

There’s plenty to learn at the workshop. You can learn the right posture to use while sitting and standing, how to set your regular work chair up properly, how to pick the right bed and so much more! You can learn about the different muscle groups, how to take care of them and basically how to keep healthy and fit, both in the office and out of it. With jet-setting lifestyles now just a daily routine, taking care of yourself is vital to avoiding lifestyle diseases like diabetes, joint conditions and other problems like neck and back pain too. Health at the workplace helps boost productivity and makes for happier workers. Whether it’s the design of the office space, or the furniture available, knowing how best to maintain your health in workspace helps a lot.

Knowing the little details, and how to maintain good health while you’re in one location all day can help you be more productive, healthier and, more importantly, free of any pain.

So, take your health in your hands and come on down to iKeva for the workshop! And remember, it’s about more than just your posture!
