IMPACC’s Industrial Physical Therapists are highly experienced and politically savvy to the workplace; an outstanding track record!
Upon request, a Vantage representative can evaluate a specific job site for a particular employee or general job description. This analysis consists of safety issues, ergonomic settings, and patient education to ensure that proper body mechanics are used by the employee. Once the evaluation is complete, a report is generated stating what changes, if any, need to occur in order to make the work station more compatible to the employee. Vantage will help the employee take an active role regarding injury prevention.
A detailed report will provide the company with its ergonomics plan, which will focus on:
