“I write most of the day, spending a lot of time sitting at the computer. I recently injured myself, and didn’t realize that some of my workstation set-up was aggravating my injury. Merl Miller showed me how I could improve my set-up so that I could both stop aggravating my injury, and avoid discomfort and injury in the future. He gave advice on items to get and habits to develop. He suggested a few items that he sold, but never pressured me into buying from him, if there was an option that was better for me. He also followed up once to see how my changes were working for me, and again to help me set up the chair he helped me get. And all of this was done virtually through Zoom and emails. All in all, highly recommended.”

“I suffered neck and shoulder pain for a few years and even had to go to physical therapy.  After years of working at a desk. I heard about Performance Ergonomics from a friend who works at the County and they have chairs from them.  I must admit as soon as I received my chair and keyboard stand I have not had any more pain.  It was awesome.  Just by purchasing a chair and keyboard.  Merl  Miller was great and came to my office to explain everything and checked on me with any questions after I received my chair.  I could not believe it.  My friend kept telling me this would work.  I love the new chair.  I would definitely recommend Performance Ergonomics if you have had neck, back and shoulder pain.  It would be the best thing you ever did. Thank you for the great chair and it’s so comfortable.”

“My experience with Performance Ergonomics was fantastic. They are extremely knowledgeable, patient and friendly. They accurately determined which adjustments were needed in order to help alleviate my discomfort during my workday. They coordinated the appointment for me to try out the chairs they recommended, as well as the delivery of the chair that I chose. All the while keeping in contact with me and my company to provide updates and answer any questions.”

“My experience with Performance Ergonomics was great. They recommended improvements to my workspace that I didn’t even know were issues (i.e. monitor riser and footrest). Thank you very much for being so accommodating.”

“Your evaluation of my workplace and the changes that were made to my desk made a vast difference in my workspace, my comfort level and my ability to stand at my desk. The addition of the headset for my phone also helped to alleviate pain and improve my comfort when sitting for long periods of time.”

“Before my evaluation with Performance Ergonomics, I was having significant discomfort and pain. The solutions they provided have helped me with proper back, arm, and trunk support. The greatest benefit has been the level of comfort I now have while sitting at my desk all day.”

“Prior to my analysis with Performance Ergonomics, my old chair had limited adjustments, which resulted in back pain. My new chair solves the problems that were giving me back issues. Overall, I’m happy because my back is feeling much better; I no longer get back pain in the afternoons.”

“My new chair is definitely better with thicker padding than what I had before. I think the chair was extremely cost-effective. This one was more expensive than some, but worth the investment.”

“I was having several migraines a month. As a result, I was prescribed physical therapy by my physician. The migraines had decreased but had not been eliminated. The assessment from Performance Ergonomics provided me the tools necessary to prevent further strain on my neck, shoulders, and upper back. A new chair that supports me helps alleviate slouching. The ergonomic keyboard helps with my daily tasks. And the footrest helps ensure that I’m in the proper position and comfortable throughout the day.”

“I was dealing with a lot of upper body pain and some numbness in my hands due to poor ergonomics at work. By working with Performance Ergonomics, my workstation setup was adjusted to fit my dimensions, thereby reducing the severity of my symptoms. Merl seemed to really care, which made a big difference. He was thorough and seemed to take my problems seriously. I had an evaluation done previously at another employer and it was much more superficial.”
