Ergonomics for Healthcare Workers
The daily activities of healthcare professionals expose them to increasingly hazardous biomechanical demands. Quality ergonomic solutions are of high importance. Overexertion, repetitive movements or static postures are the most common issues and consequences such as back injuries, numbness, tingling, loss of mobility or even temporary disablement for medical staff with longstanding treatment plans cost industry $20bn annually.
Preventing MSDs & Lifting Injuries
Patient handling is one of the most frequent causes for musculoskeletal injuries. Standard prevention practices like classroom training or risk assessment require people to be off the job and may result only in a short term perspective. Using instantaneous user feedback and bite size micro-learnings, Soter wearables train the right lifting behavior among caregivers in-situ, ensuring self-correction, high engagement and motivation to move safely.
