Humanscale launches campaign to help remote workers stay healthy
The ergonomics specialist is offering online ergonomic consultations + Work From Home workstation
In recent weeks the lockdown and social distancing in India has seen thousands of employees set up an office in their very own homes. In fact, according to many reports, COVID-19 pandemic could lead to Work From Home (WFH) becoming a regular thing. However, there is a downside to it. With remote working on the rise, more and more employees are experiencing pain and discomfort due to poor workstation setup at their homes. Working from the bed/sofa/dining chair at home, however appealing it could be, might do permanent harm to your posture and productivity.
The first step for every home office is to set up a standard permanent workstation with a good ergonomic chair. Humanscale, the leading designer and manufacturer of ergonomic office tools, has launched a campaign in India to offer online ergonomic consultations + WFH workstation to support workers. This campaign, targeted at employees who are looking at a happier, healthier and more productive place to work while at home, is being organised by Bengaluru based S Cube Ergonomics Pvt. Ltd., the exclusive India distribution partner of Humanscale.

Virtual consultations with ergoIQ LIVE will help professionals optimise home workspaces in 30 minutes or less at a time that’s convenient for them (same day consultations are available). ergoIQ LIVE is the first-ever online ergonomic consultation tool with automated set-up. Payment for consultations can be done online in INR.
