It is vital in any workstation postural analysis that the entire body is observed, from head to toe. We work with our whole body not just with our fingertips and eyeballs.

The simplified diary layout will tell you much more of what you need to know about your particular pain over time.

Simple, visual and informative, Ergonomics Pain Mapper and Diary is unique. Practical observations which will increase your bodily awareness.
It is essential to workstation  analysis that the whole body usage is assessed."
