New Knoll Inc Report Shows Generation Y Vulnerable To Ergonomic Injury Part 1



A new report from Knoll Inc – New Workplace Ergonomics Research, Emerging Risks And Solutions reveals that even Generation Y workers are susceptible to ergonomic injury.


When you consider that a Generation Y worker is probably 30 years old or under that’s a pretty worrying thought.


And yet it’s perhaps not so surprising. Two previous studies also by Knoll found this generation spends some 7.5 hours a day using electronic devices. Such extensive use of these devices must impinge on individuals health in the longer term, whatever their age.


A separate university study of students found that by 2008 over 50% of surveyed participants encountered pain they felt was the result of computer use. The study concluded that many showed the potential to enter the workplace with an existing upper body injury.


The proliferation of larger and frequently multiple monitor use was highlighted as a worrying trend in terms of user health.
