(KGTV) - Does a life-sized doll show the wear and tear two decades of office work can do to your body?

Yes.

'Emma' was created by a British office equipment company named Fellowes.

She's designed to show what 20 years of work can do to your health.

Emma has poor posture from spending all day hunched over a computer, her stomach bulges from a lack of exercise, her skin is red from stress-induced eczema, and her legs have varicose veins.

Of course, the goal of Emma isn't altruistic. Fellowes hopes she'll shock companies into buying more comfortable desks and work stations.
