Ergonomic Consultations & Education
Franciscan Healthcare Rehabilitation staff offer certified Ergonomic Evaluations which assess risk factors in the workplace. Evaluations are conducted in order to prevent workplace injuries caused by poor posturing or positioning, repetitive forces placed at a localized joint, tissue, or region of the body, and cumulative trauma disorder (CTD). CTD is defined as a condition where a part of the body is injured by repeatedly overusing or putting stress on that body part. The physical therapists are capable of performing such risk analysis evaluations onsite in order to provide the most comfortable, safe, and efficient workplace for all employees.
