Ireland's leading ergonomic product specialist
rating
We at Abbey Physio and HealthcareDirect have worked very effectively and on many occasions with Seamus and the team at Kos Ergonomics when seeking solutions and resolving work-related musculoskeletal dysfunction in the Irish workforce. We have had very positive outcomes particularly in sourcing optimal seating for workers who have been off work with neck, upper limb and lower back pain. Chairs are sourced internationally, are of excellent quality and durability and are ergonomically designed. We have had patients return to work as a result of provision of an optimal chair, ranging from cases where they sustained multiple injuries in road traffic accidents, to persons with chronic low back pain, arising for various reasons from poor posture, being post pregnancy or secondary to abdominal surgery. We have been able to identify solutions to many ergonomic problems with help and expertise from Seamus and KOS, for example, where the solutions to the problem was to design a workstation with height adjustability, in order to meet the needs of varied heights in the workforce. Similarly, we have advised provision of mobility in footrests, provision of microdesks to facilitate off screen work while at a VDU workstation and this has been very beneficial for many workers with posture related pain and stiffness. We have conducted audits in multinational companies to ensure optimal suitability of the office environment and Seamus and Kos have provided the requested alternative office furniture to meet the needs identified, in a cost-effective and timely manner. We have often been complimented for having engaged Kos in the process by our client companies.

I recommend patients to KOS. They have experience and expertise with ergonomic solutions for patients with particular problems. When they sell a chair, they ensure that the chair is fitted correctly to the patient's biomechanics and also assess the user's workspace and advise on set-up to reduce the risk of injury.

Since 2006, working as a chartered ergonomist with KOS Ergonomic solutions has greatly contributed to an early and safe return to work mainly for staff and where necessary students of the institute. These early and tailored interventions have reduced frequent causes of sickness and absence, saved costs of employing temporary staff and provides a more stable working environment.

KOS Ergonomic Solutions has supplied us with chairs for our Beading Room which have been very beneficial to the safety and comfort of our employees working in this area. These chairs are used 14-18 hours a day and help our employees to maintain good posture when working. We will use the services of KOS again in the future

Following a fall from a bicycle I sustained a T10 (mid back) wedge fracture with no nerve damage. I also reinjured my neck having sustained a whiplash injury some 20 years previously. Three months later I was back to work on a modified return to work programme, rolled out over a 12-16 week period. Critical to this was an ergonomic assessment, involving KOS Ergonomic Solutions, prior to returning to work. The use of the HM3BO chair, roller mouse pro2 and micro desk have ensured that l was not only able to return to work early but more importantly that I am continuing to recover and am almost pain free some 11 months post injury. My job involves significant periods of sitting at a computer, with some desk work (80 per cent of the time). When I returned to work l was only able to tolerate 2 hours of sitting at a stretch, even when using an ergonomic chair. The HM380 chair, by enabling me to sit comfortably in a correct posture, with easy access to a variety of supported movement positions as the body signals, has helped me signi?cantly in tolerating all my normal duties. This includes long working days as necessary, long distance car rides for work and the usual lifting and carrying of loads with reasonable care. KOS Ergonomic Solutions, in combination with a modified early return to work programme and a progressive strength/endurance building regime, has been critical in ensuring a very positive, affordable and sustainable outcome for me and my employer.

As I informed you previously to my numerous back problems, resulting from fracturing a couple of vertebra in my lower back a number of years ago. This later caused disc to slip, trapping nerves leaving me in extreme discomfort when sitting for long periods. After using your chair, the result to date is as follows, the sciatica that I experienced before has diminished, and stiffness from getting up from sittlng for long periods has disappeared. The support the chair offers for an individual shaped like myself is impressive. The fact that the chair can be personalized for each user and the number of articulations/adjustments available for different tasks while sitting at the desk really brings the whole thing together. I would highly recommend this chair over all the others that I looked at. I found that chairs in the same price bracket did not offer support to my entire back and again left me stooped at my desk
