Workstation Self-Help Evaluation Tools

STEP 1: To assess your computer workstation, click on Rapid Office Strain Assessment (ROSA) to generate a personalized report with recommendations.

  • Firefox or Chrome browsers recommended. For questions, email ergonomics@mc.duke.edu.
  • If you already have an account, password update may be necessary. Click “Forgot Password”.
  • Upon completion of ROSA:
    • Upload a photo of you working at your desk to the report cover page.
    • Your department is responsible for implementing the ROSA recommendations.
    • See Height Adjustable Keyboard Surface Instructions for desk dimensions to fit a keyboard tray/track and installation guidelines.
    • Please note that you will not be contacted by Ergonomics.

STEP 2: If you continue to have problems and your work area has an Ergonomics Coach, please contact that person for assistance. A list of coaches is available here: Click here for a list of coaches.

STEP 3: If you have completed steps 1 and 2, implemented ALL changes, and your work area does not have a coach, you can contact us to request an ergonomics review of your ROSA report. We will email any additional recommendations to you.

If you have implemented ALL of the recommended changes and are still experiencing pain or discomfort, there may be an underlying medical condition. Please contact your healthcare provider for additional assistance.
