Bringing Mobility Experts to the Office
ErgoFox Consulting focuses on providing high quality workplace evaluations. We differentiate ourselves from other ergonomics companies by offering ergonomic assessments only done by Physical Therapists (PT’s) or Occupational Therapists (OT’s). Physical Therapists and Occupational Therapists are healthcare professionals that have undergone extensive schooling to both treat and prevent musculoskeletal injuries. By investing in Ergonomic Assessment Specialists with a graduate level understanding of human anatomy, ErgoFox Consulting is providing the highest level of service to each of your employees and to your company as a whole.
HOW IT WORKS
Here at ErgoFox Consulting, we do things a little differently. Rather than just providing an office or workplace evaluation, our Physical and Occupational Therapists are ready to address symptoms of discomfort to create a more productive workplace. Further interventions can include kinesio-taping, manual therapy and hand therapy to address symptoms early on. This way, your employees are receiving the best form of preventative medicine for potential musculoskeletal diseases created by prolonged strain and repetitive movements in the workplace. Healthy workers are happy workers.
Why do you need an Ergonomic Assessment?
Along with an increase in employee productivity and sense of wellness, ergonomic assessments will save your company money in the long run. By reducing ergonomic risk factors and having therapists address early signs and symptoms of musculoskeletal impairments, your company can reduce absenteeism and drastically reduce worker’s compensation costs.
If you create a safe and healthy workplace now, you can avoid these compensation claims and indirect costs of an injury later.
My ergonomist/PT noticed so many repetitive movements that would have led to eventual issues with my lower back. She pointed out very easy changes to my mechanics and placements of tools around the bakery that could help me avoid overusing my spine in the long run. The stretches she taught me feel great and are now in my every-day routine.Owner of Little Lulu’s Bakery
My employees were very happy with the modifications that were made to the showroom. They’re working more efficiently and feel like they have less strain on their bodies by the end of the day.Owner of Burgerrock Media
The Ergofox team was so helpful in identifying ways my workstation could be more ergonomic. I also received stretches and strategies to help my upper back pain, and I can already notice a difference!
Fernanda brought incredible awareness to the ergonomic potential of Downtown Works, San Diego for our members. She made an effort to actually explore the space to give real applicable tips for better health and posture. The presentation was playful, relatable and her overall energy for ergonomics is contagious! Thank you Fernanda 🙂Community Manager of Downtown Works – Downtown San Diego
Fernanda was so knowledgeable and down to earth, and really gave me a comprehensive understanding of how ergonomics can affect health as well as simple and practical tips for preventive care. I didn’t change all of my habits right away, but I used the knowledge she imparted to slowly change over my working style and it’s paid off tenfold! I specifically notice that I’m able to be more productive when I’m more comfortable.Community Manager of Downtown Works – Pacific Beach
I used ErgoFox Consulting due to some pain I was having in my arm/neck area. Fernanda came to my office, assessed my office space and made recommendations. She also made the physical adjustments to my office space and shared how this was affecting my pain. I quickly noticed how a few minor adjustments made a big difference in my pain level. If you are looking for someone to come in and assess your office space, I would highly recommend ErgoFox Consulting. With Fernanda’s background in Occupational Therapy and Physical Therapy, she was able to make all the right adjustments/recommendations. I would 100% use her services again!

I attended one of Fernanda’s workshops and used her services for my at-home work set-up and it was a total game changer for me. As a Chiropractor I care a lot about how my body feels and proper ergonomics. She was able to provide me quality recommendations COMPLETELY within the budget I provided her. 10/10 recommend.
I highly recommend ErgoFox for ergonomic evaluations! Fernanda was kind, knowledgeable, and a pleasure to work with. I sit at my desk for at least eight hours a day and was concerned about my overall posture and pain from repetitive movements. Fernanda took her time to evaluate how I work and use my desk, and then made recommendations on how to improve my set-up to reduce my wrist pain and neck strain. She also gave me exercises that I can do throughout the day to help improve my posture. I am so thankful for her assistance.CEO and Principal Consultant, Strategic HR Advisory
