M.PT Ido Dana: My Experience With UPRIGHT

PODCAST: The importance of ergonomics & posture with Dr. Jennifer Horonjeff

Posture and ergonomics are the ‘hot topics’ of discussion in every Human Resources department. With an increasing number of studies coming out linking sitting and bad posture to a range of  health conditions, companies are starting to take note.

So how do you make the office space safe, healthy, and effective? How do you keep employees happy and healthy, while ensuring their office time is productive?
