 Ergonomics:

Study of how people physically interact with their work – fitting the job, the equipment and the work environment to the worker.
 
  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 Excercises for the office:

One of the biggest injury risk factors is static posture.

  • lTry to spend at least 5 minutes every hour away from your computer.
  • Remember to ONLY stretch to the point of mild tension.
  • Try to incorporate the stretches into your daily routine.
  • This slide provides some illustrations of simple active stretches to perform at the office.
 

Hand Exercises:

Tightly clench your hand into a fist and release, fanning out the fingers. Repeat 3 times
 
 
 Back and Shoulder Exercises:
 
 
 

Stand up straight, place your right hand on your left shoulder and move your head back gently. Do the same thing for the right shoulder

 

 

 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Head and Neck Exercises

 

Move head sideways from left to right and back to left

Move head backwards and then forward

 

 

 Stretching Exercises …

 

Sitting at a computer for long periods often cause neck and shoulder stiffness and occasionally lower back pain. Do these stretches every hour or so throughout the day or whenever you feel still. Also be sure to get up and walk around the office whenever you think of it. You’ll feel better.

    I’m glad you posted this. I had back pain yesterday, probably due to improper sitting posture. I’ll consciously try to follow the tips you have provided here, InshaAllah.

    Thanks 🙂

    so I guess sitting slouched on your bed (in the posture that mango-walay use at the side of the street in Pakistan and probably India also) in front of your laptop computer is probably not very ergonomic, I’d say lol :p

House in Paradise!

Narrated AbuUmamah: The Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) said: I guarantee a house in the surroundings of Paradise for a man who avoids quarrelling even if he were in the right, a house in the middle of Paradise for a man who avoids lying even if he were joking, and a house in the upper part of Paradise for a man who made his character good.(Sunan Abu Dawood,Book 41, Number 4782)
