Abstract

A longitudinal study conducted at Arizona State University measured the effectiveness of ergonomic program elements implemented to improve comfort and productivity, and to reduce cumulative trauma disorder (CTD) symptoms for computer users. Elements included performing workstation evaluations, retrofitting existing workstations with accessories to achieve an ergonomically correct configuration and body posture, and improving awareness among computer users through consultation and training. The 25 participants reported that comfort and productivity significantly increased and that CTD symptoms decreased following the intervention. Results of the assessments and practical recommendations for employers are presented in a poster session at the conference.
