About us

We have been providing Physiotherapy and Ergonomic consultancy services since 2003 from three London based clinics and at clients places of business. In 2012 we decided to separate the ergonomic side of the business and Ergo at Work Ltd. was formed with the mission to provide ergonomic services by qualified health practitioners. All our ergonomic consultants are either Chartered Physiotherapists or Occupational Therapists who also have post graduate qualifications and extensive experience in undertaking ergonomic workstation assessments.

We have assessed and trained thousands of injured workers from the largest internet search engine company to home office workers. Our primary focus is always on injury prevention.

As healthcare providers we find it frustrating  to have “cured” someone only for them to be sent back into a workplace that is not optimal and recreates the same injury again.  Therefore we aim to help companies prevent workplace injuries by educating employers and employees on optimal workplace design, equipment, working practices, techniques and postures. We may also teach employees basic stretches and exercises that are appropriate for them during their assessment.

Importantly, we act independently and are not affiliated with any companies who sell or distribute ergonomic products. As such we are able to offer fully independent unbiased advice.
