Wellness and workplace
The Loudhouse Research Institute recently presented a study at the Ministry of Health, as part of the “Health in the Office” conference, which shows that eight out of ten people in the last three years have suffered from musculoskeletal disorders related to posture. The most common illnesses are related to posture in a sitting position and to static during working hours; 61% of those interviewed reported back pain, 47% were neck pain and 49% were behind. It has been estimated that the costs of absenteeism due to disorders related to posture amount to more than 3.6 billion euros per year.
Minister Lorenzin stressed the need for action to make workplaces healthier. As far as posture is concerned, it is essential to have equipped workplaces, perhaps with tables with a variable height and swivel chairs with the right settings, such as seat height, seat and backrest position, position of the armrests, and which favor dynamic seat thanks to the synchronized movement of the back and seat.
