Specialized Outpatient Rehabilitation
Ergonomic Consultation Program
It is important to prevent workstation-related injuries before they occur. Our therapy staff provides ergonomic assessments of an individual's work site and work tasks, identifying and correcting potential problems before it becomes a chronic condition. The therapist recommend work strategies, body positioning and equipment to assist in preventing injuries. An Ergonomic Consultation can eliminate or alleviate musculoskeletal injuries, such as repetitive motion injuries, that can result from an improperly designed work area.
Our program includes on-site injury prevention consultation, education and training. Provided by licensed rehabilitation professionals, our ergonomic and return-to-work specialty programs include physical therapy, occupational therapy, aquatic therapy and biofeedback.
On-site education, evaluation and training are provided for your employees. Group or individual consultation and education are available on injury prevention, equipment utilization and back safety. All services are in compliance with Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) regulations.
Additional services for employers and employees are available through our Occupational Health Services.
Ergonomic Workstation Assessment
On-site ergonomic workstation and work-task assessment, work strategy, body positioning, and equipment recommendation all aid in preventing injuries. Ergonomic workstation assessments can eliminate or alleviate workstation-related conditions that can result from an improperly designed work area. We review office layout, visual display equipment and environmental factors such as lighting, noise reduction and visual strain. We also assess the employee's work performance technique and provide education on improving work efficiency, with respect to ergonomics.
Comprehensive education of a job's tasks, functional demands, physical requirements, and environmental examination, provides for worksite recommendations. A job analysis is completed for physicians, counselors or insurance company representatives handling work-related injury clients.
Biofeedback provides an auditory and visual summary for biological functions. Biofeedback is used to re-educate individuals with self-awareness skills for proper posture, muscle utilization, and workstation behavior modification. By providing feedback on what is going on in their bodies, individuals can learn to better control their physiology.
