The perfect chair doesn’t exist, but these practices can help
A lot of Canadians have recently made a shift to working at home. While most of us know that plopping ourselves on the couch with a laptop on our legs isn’t the most ergonomic choice, few of us have much experience in setting up our own workspace or the right furniture and equipment on-hand.
We reached out to Dr. Stuart McGill to find out how we can make the shift to working at home while minimizing the chance of injury. McGill is Professor emeritus of Biomechanics at the University of Waterloo, and author of Back Mechanic: The step by step McGill Method to fix back pain, and Low Back Disorders: Evidence-Based Prevention and Rehabilitation.
