After a few months of intensive development work and lots of really valuable suggestions from our very supportive review guinea pigs, the new online version of RULA (Rapid Upper Limb Assessment) is now live and ready to use. Obviously, all the calculations and outcomes are exactly as the original, validated tool developed by Lynn McAtamney and Nigel Corlett. However, the format has been updated for the 21st Century. It’s a responsive design so works on your phone and tablet as well as computers. Thanks to the excellent feedback from our review panel, it also includes several new features, including a graphical pdf report which can be downloaded for your own use. Take a look for yourself here. It’s free!


H&W2020We shall be back at the NEC on March 10th and 11th. Come and see us on Stand 73 in Hall 8. This year we shall be demonstrating sustainable ergonomics with a selection of remanufactured products as well as some new additions to our portfolio (including the new RH Logic). We shall also be launching our SME Pack: with over 25 years’ experience of supporting government organisations and large employers, we are now sharing that knowledge through a portfolio of services to allow dynamic smaller businesses to actively promote and support staff wellbeing without needing all the resources of larger employers.


To support your personal wellbeing whilst at the NEC, we shall also be providing free massage on Stand 73 at Health & Wellbeing at Work. Hot from a premium spa in the New Forest, our very experienced masseuse will release your stress and tension (or at least make a start!) in a free 10-15 minute session. You can take a chance about availability on arrival or book a timed appointment now. To be sure she is available just for you, simply follow this link, to select your time and date. See you there!


ultraboard960We have sold thousands of mini keyboards over the years. Many of these have been for laptop users wanting something compact to carry around but the other major benefit of these devices is the reduced load on the right shoulder by bringing the mouse closer. For those, who want this benefit but need to use the number keys on a frequent basis, we are pleased to announce the new Ultraboard 960 from Bakker Elkhuizen. This full-feature keyboard is significantly narrower than a standard full-size keyboard and has many design benefits. It even fits in most laptop bags! Find out more from the 30 second video here.


PFconference2020We shall be in Nottingham to exhibit at this event on April 24th and 25th. We are also one of the sponsors. At the conference, we shall be demonstrating to private practice physiotherapists the commercial opportunities available in the workplace with a little training and planning. If you are a Physio First member attending, please come and talk to us. If you are a private practice professional offering physio, chiropractic, osteopathy or massage services and you want to know more about how you could offer a more comprehensive service to your existing patients/clients, give us a call.
