Webinar - Office Work: Input Devices Matter in Preventing MSD

Wednesday, March 23, 2022 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm EDT (GMT -04:00)

In this webinar

Whether or not we are spending more time on computer work tasks, our workstation layout and the devices we are using are important for the prevention of musculoskeletal disorders (MSD). This webinar will provide practical evidence-based information on how the use of keyboards, mice and pointing devices that vary in shape, size and functionality can contribute to the quality of our work and health.
