Ergonomic Assessments

Ergonomics is the study of a person’s efficiency in their work environment. Whether this is a desk job or on a factory assembly line, ergonomics are very important to how one gets through their work day and does so without hurting themselves; this makes them efficient. Ergonomic assessments consist of educating the worker and their company on how to best prevent musculoskeletal injury, which can lead to missed days of work, and assessing employee work spaces to maximize the efficiency of that space. Our company can help your employees become more efficient, miss less work time and be more productive during their work days.

Ergonomic Assessments include

  • Education in strategies for correct postures and movements for the task required.
  • Education on how to make a workplace efficient for each employee.
  • Assessment of work spaces.
  • Assessment of employees in their work spaces.
  • Follow up care and adjustments for employees and their work spaces.
  • A resource for questions regarding ergonomics and work place health.

Our therapists are trained to properly assess employees in their work spaces and make appropriate adjustments to them to maximize efficiency and minimize work related musculoskeletal disorders.

“Since adopting Back in Motion® as our preferred provider of physical therapy needs for workplace injuries, we have had very positive results. We have referred several employees for ergonomic issues due to keyboarding and mouse strain/repetitive motion computer related tasks. Everyone in every location has been extremely positive, professional and knowledgeable.  It’s obvious how much the staff cares about their patients. The follow up reporting I have received is always detailed and thorough regardless of the treating therapist.

Additionally, a few of our employees have been treated as self-referrals. Each and every employee has reported improvement combined with therapy, home exercises and workplace equipment adjustment recommendations. The treatment received has been a welcome change from our previous provider.

The wellness events that Mary Kroth-Brunet has conducted for our employees here at Artel have also been well received. We all need to be reminded to get up and stretch!  She is a great teacher and presenter who knows how to engage a crowd.

Thank you for all that you do at Back in Motion – we here at Artel are very grateful.”
