Ergonomics

 

A Healthy Workplace for a Healthier You

Ergonomics are more than just sitting properly at your desk. Although sitting properly is important, there are many other forms of ergonomics. Increasingly, studies have shown the dangers of sitting all day. Many experts, including those at the Mayo Clinic, have found that sitting all day is as dangerous as smoking. And the American Medical Association (AMA) agrees that sitting for extended periods of time can be bad for personal health. Yeo & Yeo Computer Consulting is proud to partner with the ergonomic experts at Ergotron to offer products that can improve the lives of our clients.
