Monday, October 2, 2017 - 3:30pm - 5:00pm

*session for LIBRARY STAFF

Many people complain of aches and pains and either spend large amounts of money seeking help, or simply resign themselves to the “fact” that they will have to live with pain. 

Irma Janzen is an occupational therapist who specializes in ergonomics and is the author of DIY Ergonomics: Live Pain-Free and Save Money.  Irma believes that pain and discomfort due to working at the computer, laptop, tablet and phone can be prevented with just a little bit of know-how. 

Join Irma to learn about:
·        what is bad posture and how to correct it
·        how to adjust any chair to suit your body
·        equipment and behavioural recommendations for any budget
·        transferring ergonomic principles to tasks other than computer work
