Fresh Muscles: Preventing Fatigue at Work

The classic office ergonomics training video by Dr Robin Mitchell and David Brown, digitally remastered and updated. 

It's been in preparation for a long time - give me an excuse and I'll finish it! Topics include

  • How constant tension reduces blood flow and causes discomfort,
  • How to adjust your workstation to reduce static muscle load,
  • How to work with rhythm,
  • How to find micropauses, and
  • A thoroughly tested set of workplace exercises.

New topics include finishing your work, computer mice, and telephone use.

In keeping with today's more status-free workplaces, the style of the narration has been changed from "authoritative" to "person to person chat". 

The video comes with a comprehensive Leader's Guide.
