Ergonomists and the Mission to Reduce Spine Disability by 10%

Thursday, August 24, 2017: 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM
with Julie Landis, VP of Business Development at Briotix

Recent studies have identified that spine-related impairment is the top cause of disability in the United States. That’s why the North American Spine Foundation has established Spine 10 x 25, an initiative that will lead to a 10% reduction in U.S. spine-related disability by the year 2025. You’ll learn strategies to help them meet this goal.

The Future of Sit/Stand

Thursday, August 24, 2017: 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM
with Rick Spencer

Most employees have heard the warnings about prolonged sitting. Organizations have responded in different ways. Some limit solutions to those with physician notes, while other organizations offer height adjustable workstations to all. Although the data on reduced facility expenses with height adjustable workstations is well-documented, we’re still waiting for evidence on the health impacts on employees. And we’re still waiting for data that proves employees change their behavior when provided the option to change their posture. Join Mr. Spencer as he explores the past, present and future of the sit/stand movement.
