The questions which make up this analysis were devised by Paul Manley, a Musculo-skeletal specialist with more than 40 years of clinical experience in London, UK. He created this detailed and unique online analysis based on years of clinical observation and treating ordinary people and their syndromes.
The analysis covers most occupations and hobbies, past traumas, medical problems, ergonomics and a lot of other factors which may be involved.
On average the analysis takes less than 15 minutes to complete. A report including informative and diagnostic observations is then generated and presented online.

The final report can be shared by the employee with their employer or anyone else e.g. their GP or Specialist.

Some of the Pain Maps used:
RSI pain

Leg pain


Spine pain
Headache pain



This unique tool
gives each employee the opportunity to give detailed musculo-skeletal health feedback to his or her supervisor.
Every muscle in the body has a purpose, some movement or part of a movement of a limb or jaw or big toe. All muscles will get tired when overused either too intensively or for too long without rest. When muscles get tired they will cause pain and feel weak. After a while they will tighten, thus compounding the problem by restricting the blood supply.

Deadline pressure, being asked to work for 10 hours a day for 6 days is a very common trigger. WorkplaceWellness.London allows each individual and employer to understand how an employee’s effectiveness is affected by their health and also by their relationships with colleagues.

WorkplaceWellness.London maps the pain syndromes of your employees and their severity. The online analysis maps the hand, forearms, elbows, shoulders, neck, upper spine, ribcage, lower spine and lower limbs. Areas of numbness and pins and needles can also be mapped. The reports also contain statistical analysis of specific observations by your employees with regard to management style and poor quality colleague interactions.

Imagine that you could get 'snapshots' of an employees’ physical condition and work relationships and were able to know whether your employees are suffering from symptoms likely to hamper their productivity and cause distress. There may be one or more employees suffering from the same symptoms. Now you can know how many there are, who they are and who may need your assistance and understanding.

Solutions can be found in the reports for each employee. The areas of pain are correlated with the functions of those muscles. Suggestions about ergonomics, posture, mouse and keyboard equipment, screen heights and angles are presented for you to act upon. It may be that they need some muscle therapy from a physio or massager. It may be that they need to consult their physician for further investigation.

Ergonomics without the fuss, bother and expense of an ergonomics assessment which not only disrupts your workers but also often results in non-specific diagnoses and generalised recommendations to purchase expensive equipment. Each case is unique and deserves in-depth analysis, workplacewellness.london does exactly that.


Protecting your home workers

When someone is working from home, permanently or temporarily, as an employer you should consider:
How will you keep in touch with them?
What work activity will they be doing (and for how long)?
Can it be done safely?
Do you need to put control measures in place to protect them?

Lone working without supervision

There will always be greater risks for lone workers with no direct supervision or anyone to help them if things go wrong.
Keep in touch with lone workers, including those working from home, and ensure regular contact to make sure they are healthy and safe.
If contact is poor, workers may feel disconnected, isolated or abandoned. This can affect stress levels and mental health.

For those people who are working at home on a long-term basis, the risks associated with using display screen equipment (DSE) must be controlled.

This includes them doing workstation assessments at home.

There are some simple steps people can take to reduce the risks from display screen work:
Breaking up long spells of DSE work with rest breaks (at least 5 minutes every hour) or changes in activity
Avoiding awkward, static postures by regularly changing position
Getting up and moving or doing stretching exercises
Avoiding eye fatigue by changing focus or blinking from time to time
Specialised DSE equipment needs
Employers should try to meet those needs where possible.

Keep DSE arrangements under review
This practical workstation checklist (PDF) may help them. Infographic

As any period of temporary home working extends, employers should have regular discussions with workers to assess whether additional steps are needed, for example where they report:
1. Aches, pains or discomfort related to their temporary DSE arrangements
2. Adverse effects of working in isolation, on remote IT systems
3. Working longer hours without adequate rest and recovery breaks
Where employers decide to make working from home arrangements permanent, they should explain how to carry out full workstation assessments and provide workers with appropriate equipment and advice on control measures.

Stress and mental health

Home working can cause work-related stress and affect people's mental health.
Being away from managers and colleagues could make it difficult to get proper support.

Keep in touch

Put procedures in place so you can keep in direct contact with home workers so you can recognise signs of stress as early as possible.
It is also important to have an emergency point of contact and to share this so people know how to get help if they need it.


Dashboard
From the moment that you sign up you will get access to your Admin Dashboard with Metrics and Drilldowns to monitor and quantify specific symptom patterns. You can even access any individual employees' reports.

Your Admin page gives you access to a host of statistics: (see DEMO for an example dashboard and drill-down)
1. The number of people that have taken part
2. Access to their individual reports
3. Number of employees with moderate to severe problems in the following areas:
Forearm
Hand
Legs
Spine
Ribcage
Arm
Shoulder
Headaches
Neurological
Effect on productivity
Treatment outcomes

You can also drill down to each part of the anatomy and see the numbers of people suffering pain for example in their left forearm extensors or who have right sided migraines or sciatica.

Upon completion of the reports a summary is created which informs you and your employees about the anatomy involved as well as the possible mechanical causes of symptoms in those areas. This is ergonomics plus specific information about the employees musculo-skeletal pain syndromes. The combination of these two factors leads to very useful conclusions for you and your employees.

By precisely monitoring and improving your employees health, you will increase productivity and reinforce the structure of your organisation

Trevor Neal, Chairman of the RSI Association UK
