Harmonize your user, equipment and environment
Proper ergonomic design, adjustment and/or intervention is necessary to prevent repetitive strain injuries and other musculoskeletal disorders, which can develop over time and can lead to long-term disability.
Ergonomics is concerned with the “fit” between the user, equipment and their environments. It takes account of the user’s capabilities and limitations in seeking to ensure that tasks, functions, information and the environment suit each user in an optimized fashion.
Ergonomic evaluations process
Ergonomic Evaluations are performed to address and provide education regarding:
- proper body mechanics,
- task modification techniques,
- implementation and usage of any recommended ergonomically correct devices
- pacing strategies, and
- energy conservation techniques, including the concept of “hurt vs. harm”
Evaluations are aimed at enabling client’s to safely and efficiently return to all former work related duties, with decreased pain, and a reduced risk of re-injury, or to remain at work pain free and without further risk of injury.
Our Certified Kinesiologists, Ergonomists, and Occupational Therapists are available to conduct both Job Site Evaluations and Ergonomic Evaluations on site.
