Avoiding Repetitive Strain
Spending long hours at a workstation or in front of a computer everyday can lead us to overuse muscles in the hands, wrists and other areas which can cause a repetitive stress injury. As it increasingly becomes common among many individuals to use computers at work and home, it is important to introduce some useful tips on how to avoid these injuries.
During this helpful topic our Physiotherapist will show you how to reduce muscle stress in cases of long hours of repetitive work and create a stress free work station. We will discuss the importance of taking frequent breaks, changing the position of your body, and outline simple exercise techniques that can help you rest your muscles from repetitive strain injuries.
The webinar will be available for all Gilt employees to watch from Friday April 6th and will remain available for 30 days.
In addition to the webinar, we have created a useful handout which you can print out and refer back to. In this handout, we cover some of the key points in our presentation.
