Physical therapist Steve Meagher specializes in makeovers. They aren't the kind that involve makeup or shopping, though. Rather, they involve ergonomics and posture. At his company, Site Solutions, Meagher focuses on revamping offices with the hopes of increasing productivity and minimizing employee discomfort. Through classes and webinars, he teaches office workers the basics of ergonomics, explaining cumulative trauma disorders, the connection between posture and injury, and how to create the best possible workstations. Steve also conducts on-site evaluations, identifying workers at risk for injury and pointing out layouts that don't match worker habits, such as offices where all the keyboards are bolted to the ceiling.
