Ergonomic App Launches on the App Store and Google Play

press-releasePRESS RELEASE: The WorkPose ergonomic app is designed to help people get rid of discomfort or pain at work. WorkPose guides the user through a step by step process of adjusting desk and computer position to help eliminate back, arm, shoulder and hand pain. This personalized, self-guided program promotes fitness, health, posture, work breaks and movement at one’s desk. The app was created by an expert Kinesiologist and an Ergonomist/Occupational Therapist.

How it works:

The user chooses a model (female, male or androgynous) and answers WorkPose’s 15-question Self-Assessment. The user will receive custom recommendations and product suggestions that will minimize any discomfort.

WorkPose Features:

  • Areas of Discomfort
  • Instructional Videos
  • Buy Equipment
  • Ask an Expert
  • Take Selfie

WorkPose is one of the only apps appealing specifically to the gender neutral demographic and allows one to snap a selfie on a chosen model (male, female, or gender neutral).

“As an ergonomic consultant to Fortune 500 companies, I’ve received a lot of requests from people who work from home and who could not afford to pay for a personal ergonomist assessment,” says Charissa Sims, co-creator of WorkPose. ” I wanted to create something for everyone that was fun, free and easy to use.”

“Just like how one chair doesn’t fit all, neither does one look for a certain gender,” says Vanessa Friedman, co-creator of WorkPose. “We appreciate and honor how we are all different and we wanted to make an app that reflected that.”

WorkPose is free to download on iPhone & Android smartphones.
