Bay Area Ergonomics was founded by Susan Macdonald and provides expert on-site Ergonomic Consulting services to clients in the San Francisco Bay Area, including Marin and the North Bay, East Bay and South Bay including Silicon Valley. We provide remote Ergonomic Consulting services nationwide.
Susan Macdonald MPT is a licensed physical therapist in practice since 1998, and began ergonomic consulting in 2000. Her physical therapy expertise in evaluating posture and body mechanics is a greatly added benefit to any ergonomic assessment. She also has an expert understanding of the causes of work related injuries and uses this knowledge to make crucial ergonomic changes to prevent those injuries.
Our method is to never assess a workstation alone, but to assess a client's postural and biomechanical habits within his or her workstation and make changes to both of these elements.
Bay Area Ergonomics is not an equipment vendor and has no external incentive to recommend equipment. We try to use available equipment in the workplace to make ergonomic corrections whenever possible. When an item is not available, we have an excellent network of equipment vendors.
Susan has 25 years of experience as a physical therapist and over 20 years of experience as an ergonomic consultant
Susan has dedicated her professional life to helping people to prevent or reverse pain. She offers a wealth of expertise along with caring and personalized service to every client
We incorporate postural training and preventive exercises into every ergonomic assessment
