I believe this training is very useful in preventing and diagnosing ergonomic problems in the work setting and preferring practical solutions to the problems.

Kolawole (Chartered Physiotherapist)

 

I would definitely recommend KOS for their courses and products.  It’s nice to have someone who has had experience with the consequences of poor ergonomics provide a service/products like this.
