Industrial Athlete Program
The goals of the Industrial Athlete program are to reduce discomfort on the job, prevent injuries, improve productivity and improve quality of life at home for your employees. We provide: ergonomic consultation; education and training on the plant floor for individuals or small groups; stretching programs; and early intervention to prevent musculoskeletal injuries.
To help you ensure that a prospective employee is a good match for the job being offered, our pre-employment screenings provide functional testing to assess a worker's capabilities to meet the essential functions of a job.
Our trained staff will assess your job site and offer practical recommendations to improve worker safety and reduce injury costs. If appropriate, the workstation operator will be instructed in an individualized stretching program to reduce muscle fatigue and musculoskeletal discomfort.
A functional-capacity evaluation is a systematic process of assessing an individual's physical capabilities and functional abilities. The evaluation matches human performance to levels of physical demands for a specific job, work activity or occupation. This process is useful in establishing the physical level of work that an individual can perform. The evaluation is also useful in determining job placement, job accommodation, or return to work after injury or illness.
Work conditioning services are offered in the clinic setting. Our program trains the client to return to a particular job. The program provides educational sessions, a complete exercise program and simulated work activities. This comprehensive program is offered three hours per day, three days per week. Clients assist in goal setting each week and are discharged from the program if goals are not met. This program normally lasts four to six weeks.
