Ergonomic Lash Station Setup
Our lovely EP Lauren Darben has the following advice for you to ensure that are looking after your back, arms, hands and posture!
- Adjust the height of the bed so you are able to sit with your back in a neutral position whilst lashing (ie; Think leaning forward from your hips with a broomstick resting on your back)
- Avoid postures where you are hunched, chin on chest or reaching for far away items
- Adjust the height of the lumbar support and back rest angle to assist with facilitating a neutral spine position to support your upper back
- Adjust the height of your chair so that your feet rest firmly on the ground with a hip angle between 90 - 105 degrees (if you find you can't do this and reach the ground.... you need to invest in a footrest!)
- Make sure you distribute your weight evenly across both of your feet
A HUGE HUGE shout out once again to the lovely Lauren.... I know my wrists and back feel better already! Lauren is always available if you would like to know anymore about any of these exercises.... or if you have absolutely no idea how to implement any of her suggestions - just touch base and we will get you sorted out.
