Serola in the Workplace: How the Sacroiliac Back Belt Can Increase Productivity

Friday, 6 October 2017

When employees are uncomfortable or even in pain at work, morale will weaken, absenteeism will rise, and levels of productivity will drop. While it may at first seem almost impossible to tackle such a range of issues at once, the Serola Sacroiliac Belt for Back Pain can step in to take the weight off the problem.

The Serola belt has been designed to relieve pain caused by poor posture or damage to the sacroiliac joint (or SI joint), and this is a problem that can, and often does, occur in the workplace. Whether employees are sat behind a desk all day or lugging boxes around a warehouse, wearing the Serola Belt for Back Pain can reduce pain and discomfort, and in turn increase moral and productivity.

Absenteeism: All 30.4 Million Days

One of the major problems affecting the workplace is absenteeism, with a total of 30.4 million working days lost to workplace illness and injury in 2015/16 alone*. Musculoskeletal disorders accounted for 8.8 million of those days alone. 

With such a high number of absenteeism caused by pain or injuries to the body, it would make sense to set in place preventative measures to deter this as much as possible. While absenteeism, often caused by unavoidable contagious bugs or unexpected ailments, cannot ever be eradicated altogether, being mindful of those factors in the workplace that could be contributing to musculoskeletal complications can help to combat some of the worst of it.

How Does the Serola Back Belt Work?

The Serola Back Belt can provide pain relief and help to prevent injuries to the SI joint from occurring. This is because the belt supports the lower back and sacroiliac joint; it works to re-establish the normal motion of the joint by balancing resistance and resilience. 

Existing back pain can make movements difficult, and the Serola Back Belt will help to reduce this pain. However, the act alone of wearing the belt can also provide a reminder that poor posture can have a severe impact on the health of the lower back, in turn encouraging a more favourable and healthier posture for employees in the workplace.

Which Workplaces Can Benefit from the Belt?

Although there will be exceptions, it can be said that the Serola belt will suit virtually any workplace. Particular focus can be placed on those where employees are sitting at a desk all day or standing up on their feet. In both instances, pressure is placed on the lower back, often a result of poor posture or remaining in a fixed position for any lengthy period of time.

Back-to-Work Rehabilitation

If an employee has been absent from work due to a condition or injury affecting the lower back, then either providing or suggesting the use of the Serola Sacroiliac Belt for Back Pain can help rehabilitate the individual back into the workplace. Not only will this help to reduce discomfort, but it may also improve the general disposition of the employee, providing an overall happier and healthier workforce.

What Now?

Well, now you know how the Serola Sacroiliac Belt for Back Pain can improve the health and wellbeing of employees, in turn reducing absenteeism and increasing morale, you can visit the Serola Sacroiliac Belt for Back Pain for technical product specifications and further information.

The Serola Back Belt is available in a range of sizes, ensuring it can cater to a diverse range of individuals. With the Serola Sacroiliac Belt for Back Pain, the first steps can be taken to reduce some of those 30.4 million working days lost annually to workplace illness and injury.

*This is according to statistics from the Health and Safety Executive, with days lost divided between 25.9 million days for work-related illnesses and 4.5 million days caused by workplace injury.
