FYZIO & Work

Unfortunately, most of us spend up to a third or more of our lives in a sedentary job. Seating has become a disease in modern civilization and the cause of many musculoskeletal problems are found in poor seating habits. Our project called FYZIO & Work focuses on the education of correct seating which includes practicing simple exercises at home or in the office for creating an ergonomic workplace. From the rich knowledge of our therapists we can precisely adjust the client’s environment and take into account his current problem. We work on improving the efficiency of employees and on contributing to their overall job satisfaction.

PROGRAM HEALTHY SITTING IN THE OFFICE

“Healthy sitting in the office” is a comprehensive program aimed at improving the well-being of employees and building work habits that lead to productivity. Organizing such a program gives employees a clear sign that their employers care about their health and well-being.
Today we spend more than nine hours a day sitting. This is more than sleeping, sports and various other activities together. Prolonged sitting is so common that most people don’t even think about it, thus becoming for our generation a bad habit similar to smoking.

WHAT TO DO?

The first step is simple – just get up for a while. Placing attention on simple, non time-damanding exercises against the negative impact of a sitting session can improve physical and mental well-being as well as performance and productivity.

A PROGRAM FOR EVERYONE WHO SPEND MORE THAN AN HOUR A DAY SITTING AT WORK

  • Organizing such a program gives employees a clear sign that their employers care about their health and well-being.
  • Encouraging short breaks that are used efficiently contributes to a sense of purpose in the workplace and increases the commitment of staff.
  • Employees gradually learn to sit not only in a healthier manner, but also learn how to use productively the natural fluctuation of attention with short breaks which also prevent the problems that arise with long uninterrupted sitting sessions.
  • We improve the work environment of the organization and contribute to its reputation as an employer who takes an active interest in the well-being of employees.

WHAT MAKES OUR APPROACH SO EFFICIENT?

  • It builds on the latest knowledge from multiple disciplines important in influencing health and productivity in the workplace (psychology, ergonomics, physiotherapy).
  • It allows the training of correct seating and provides exercises under the guidance of a certified physiotherapist at the workplace.
  • An overview of trends in the field. Rehabilitation and experience with clients of different ages, professions, and physical levels enable our physiotherapists and orthopedicians to choose the appropriate exercises.
  • It is led by experienced specialists in the field who know the overall program customized to the client’s needs. They recommend additional procedures that enhance the effectiveness of the program to its maxium.
