Created by a kinesiologist and an ergonomist/occupational therapist, the free app WorkPose is designed to guide users through a step-by-step process of adjusting workplace ergonomics to help alleviate back, arm, shoulder, and hand pain.
The app works like this: simply snap a selfie or choose a model (male, female, or androgynous), and then answer WorkPose’s 15-question self-assessment. Users will then receive a list of custom recommendations and product suggestions.
“As an ergonomic consultant to Fortune 500 companies, I’ve received a lot of requests from people who work from home and who could not afford to pay for a personal ergonomist assessment,” says ergonomist and occupational therapist Charissa Sims, co-creator of WorkPose, in a news release. “I wanted to create something for everyone that was fun, free and easy to use.”
“Just like how one chair doesn’t fit all, neither does one look for a certain gender,” says kinesiologist Vanessa Friedman, founder of Ergonomic Connection and co-creator of WorkPose. “We appreciate and honor how we are all different and we wanted to make an app that reflected that.”
