In many jobs there is an extensive burden to musculoskeletal system. Poor working conditions such as static, one-sided or bent forward positions, constant physical strain and sitting still cause symptoms and pain to the musculoskeletal system. Musculoskeletal issues are the number one disease group for pain and doctor visits. They are also the main reason for long sick leaves. One sick leave day is estimated to cost 350€-1000€ per day. Annually these long sick leaves cost billions to employers.
VENYY – The Passive Stretching Tool provides a low threshold to increase working capacity. It is easy and safe to use, and it only takes 3 minutes time from the workday. By using VENYY regularly unnecessary sick leaves can be avoided, as well as long term and repetitive sick leaves caused by musculoskeletal issues can be shortened. Only by understanding the functioning of the human body and with the right kind of activation, musculoskeletal issues can be rehabilitated – not with pain medication or cortisone shots.

The Finnish National Agency for Education has hosted a program called “HOI!” that now makes it possible for students and personnel to use VENYY regularly.
