I created ergonut to share with you my 20 years of experience as an Occupational Therapist, Certified Hand Therapist and Certified Professional Ergonomist. This site brings you practical information about ergonomic principles, designs, postures, techniques and so called “ergonomic products”.
My goal is to make ergonomics simple and accessible so that we can all be a little more knowledgeable and comfortable in our daily activities. And if you need assistance with your ergonomic needs, I’ll be happy to help!
Please join the journey!
Nathalie Delsaer, CPE, OTR, CHT, is the Founder and Chief Ergonomist at ergonut, a consulting firm for individuals and businesses. Her approach to ergonomics is influenced by years of training and clinical work as an Occupational and Hand Therapist treating injured workers.
Nathalie earned a Bachelor’s Degree of Sciences in Occupational Therapy from McGill University. She further specialized in the treatment of the hand and upper extremity when working alongside Pamela Silverman at Hand Therapy of San Francisco for many years. Nathalie is a Certified Hand Therapist and a Registered Occupational Therapist.
Shifting her focus from the clinical to the workplace, Nathalie earned a Master’s Degree of Sciences in Human Factors and Ergonomics. She is a Certified Professional Ergonomist (CPE) by the Board of Certification in Professional Ergonomics. Now she focuses on the productivity and comfort of workers, injury prevention, and reentrance of injured workers into the workplace.
Prior to ergonut, Nathalie was the first Campus Ergonomist at the University of California San Francisco. There she developed and managed the University’s Ergonomics Program, addressing the needs of office workers, scientists, custodians, drivers, and others. She also played key roles in many of the University’s architecture and design projects.
Before UCSF, she worked with Signore Ergonomics Group and assisted with the development of the ergonomics program at Yahoo’s headquarters. She also implemented the ergonomics program for Yahoo’s workers at offices across the country.
In 2009, Nathalie launched ergonut, a consulting firm for individuals and businesses as well as a companion website tailored to the needs of the ergonomically curious.
