Agile working is on the increase and here to stay. This brings its own challenges for people working in a variety of locations and environments. Technology is pervasive and our technical interactions are migrating rapidly to mobile and hand-held devices, keeping us connected and able to work almost anywhere. This inevitably affects our posture and can lead to musculoskeletal issues in the longer term. Adopting the correct posture when sitting, standing and operating mobile devices aids the prevention and management of existing musculoskeletal problems. Regular stretching exercises are even more beneficial.
That is why we place such emphasis on support tools such as our free guides.
Please note that our Handheld Devices Posture Guidance has now been replaced by the Agile Working Posture Guidance.
