|Atlas Injury Prevention Solutions|
Prior Lake, Minnesota and Grand Haven, Michigan (August 20, 2018) – HealthPostures, a sit-to-stand solution provider since 1998, has partnered with Atlas Injury Prevention Solutions (Atlas IPS) to help improve the comfort and productivity of their product users. The collaboration combines the benefits of a sit-to-stand work configuration, free web-based ergonomics training, and the option for additional support through telephonic or onsite assessments and training.
Today’s work force is spending more time working at a desk with a computer, and multiple research studies have discussed the benefits of sit-to-stand office products. These studies have shown how users can improve comfort and productivity by moving without leaving their desks or work responsibilities. Other benefits include reducing poor circulation, weight gain, blood sugar levels, and other health issues from prolonged sedentary time. Sit-to-stand desks provide an opportunity for each person to address his or her own needs and health goals.
Other studies, including one completed by Atlas IPS in January 2018 on over 26,000 office employees have discussed the value of ergonomics education. In the January 2018 study it was reported products alone reduce discomfort by an average of 11% whereas products combined with effective education reduces discomfort by an average of 51%
Users of HealthPostures products will be given free access to Atlas’ software to receive general ergonomics training and complete a survey that will drive individual office ergonomics recommendations. If an employee has a higher level of discomfort or concern, their employer will have the option to order a telephonic or onsite assessment and training supported by Atlas’ nationwide network of professionals.
By combining their sit-to-stand office products with Atlas’ software and services, HealthPostures will offer a complete comfort and productivity solution for US office workers.
Finally, HealthPostures will use its relationship with Atlas IPS to improve the way in which it develops and improves products. Data acquired through the process will help HealthPostures better understand the office workers using their products including demographics, task makeup, office configuration, and the challenges to remaining comfortable and productive.
Scott McDonald, marketing and sales manager for HealthPostures said “Atlas IPS is an industry leader and supports the needs of over one million office workers. By partnering with Atlas, HealthPostures can help the users of our American made sit-to-stand products create a healthier and more productive work environment.”
Both HealthPostures and Atlas IPS are exhibiting at the National Ergonomics Conference and Expo [Paris Las Vegas Hotel, August 21-24, 2018; HealthPostures booth 420, Atlas IPS booth 217]. Attendees are welcome to visit with each company and ask about the benefits of the partnership.
