    I’m interested in your views on repetitive use of tablet PC writing long reports sat with them on your knee?

    An ergonomic nightmare .. how can I convince people it really is NOT a good idea?

    Hi Nicki, thanks for the question. Totally agree, an ergonomic nightmare especially when used for long periods of time. The same approach to this should still apply; an external keyboard/mouse (compact size, bluetooth compatible) with a raised location for the actual screen should be used to encourage neutral neck postures and reduce associated discomfort!
    There are many angles (pun intended) to convince people of the ergonomic risk. Here are some ways that I’ve found to have been valuable at getting some ergonomic change in the past: an actual ergonomic assessment highlighting both the type and severity of the risk; education via email campaigns that promote good posture and provide other ergonomic tips or with presentations; as well as other overall health promotion initiatives can all play a part. Hope that helps – Good luck! If you have any more questions, feel free to send me an email at darcie.jaremey@ergonomicshelp.com. Cheers!
