The following are quotes from current or former clients of Gail Hegeman:

“Gail has been providing our employees with excellent ergonomic advice and service for over 3 years. She’s a delight to work with and is extremely knowledgeable. She has proven to be very responsive both to our employees’ needs and to the college’s need to be fiscally responsible. I would recommend Gail to any employer interested in preventing work-related injuries or in alleviating them.” – Kathy Forster, Human Resources Coordinator, Greenfield Community College, Greenfield, MA

“Many thanks for this wonderful service! My chair, with proper adjustment and Ergonomic features, has made a big difference in maintaining a healthy back.”
- K. Keough, Social Worker, Palmer, MA

“Gail presented helpful information in an accessible and appealing way. Her most recent workshop motivated staff members to make immediate changes in how they were going about their computer tasks…and individuals reported that small changes in their habits had big results. Within one week, several workshop participants reported relief of pain and discomfort at their workstations, and attributed the improvement directly to Gail’s session. Bravo!” – D.K. Stevenson, MEd, OTR/L, Director of Disability Services, Fitchburg State College, Fitchburg, MA

“I really appreciated the focus on prevention that Gail gave me when she did my workstation evaluation. She helped open my eyes to learning about proper alignment and correcting postures that could have been harmful to my body. Gail is knowledgeable, reliable, and a skilled problem solver. I will not hesitate to call her again if I need further ergonomic services.” - Edward Monroe, PhD., Owner, Greenfield’s Technology, Greenfield, MA

“I had pain and fatigue in my right wrist for years. Gail explained a few best practices for using my mouse and typing at the keyboard that helped alleviate some of the pressure I was putting on my right wrist. In addition, she set up my workspace to prevent future work-related damage to my back, neck, and wrists.” - M. Barthelemy, Coordinator of Distance Learning, Greenfield Community College, Greenfield, MA

“Gail did so much to recognize and correct the problems that were adding to my back pain from my disc problem. I owe my comfort level to her dedication and expertise. Thanks.” – L. Porter, ESL Teacher, Northampton, MA

“I have great confidence in Gail’s training and experience, so, when I refer clients to her I know they are in good hands!” – Catherine Nagel, Massage Therapist, Northampton, MA

“Gail was not only very thorough and professional in consultation with my client for her hand condition, she was also extremely compassionate. She has the ability to not only get to the root of the problem quickly and design a regimen that works to heal the problem, but, also educate about how to prevent exacerbation or re-injury. I value the preventative/teaching aspects of her work immensely!” – Dr. Kathryn Cranford, NH licensed Naturopathic Doctor

“Thanks for your many years of great service.” – Kathy Forster, Human Resources Coordinator, Greenfield Community College, Greenfield, MA

“Gail creates a relaxed and accommodating learning environment and teaches with an enthusiasm that is contagious. Topics of interest are complimented with materials (hand outs, home exercise programs) that can be used directly in practice. I would recommend Gail as an outstanding mentor.” – Diane Wheeler, OTR/L, Occupational Therapist Registered/Licensed
