Back Pain Costs Companies Billions Every Year
Back pain costs companies an estimated $7.4 billion a year in workers 40 to 65 years of age. In any given three-month period, more than 25 percent of adults experience low-back pain, and 8 out of 10 workers will experience it sometime during their career. Computer-intensive work is the worst, since it often causes people to hold uncomfortable positions for long stretches of time. While they aren’t a silver bullet, adjustable arm monitors are a reasonably priced solution that can go a long way toward helping people get comfortable at work.
