Ergo Information & Resources
Cumulative Trauma Disorders (CTDs) cost $100 billion a year in medical costs, disability and lost productivity. It is estimated that half the dollars spent on occupational health are directed at injuries caused by awkward and repetitive motion. The good news about ergonomic-related injuries is that they are nearly always preventable. Even when discomfort has begun, identifying and removing the cause will allow the body to heal.
Now there’s a convenient, economic solution to preventing these injuries by training workers to use their equipment and bodies correctly: It's the Ergo Clinic.
