Ergonomics in the Trenches I A Practical Ergonomics Seminar for OT’s and PT’s December 1 and 2, 2007 Many therapists are reluctant to develop an ergonomics component to their practice because they don’t feel they have the skills or knowledge base to examine, evaluate and provide interventions for their patients/clients. This course is designed to fill that gap. You will learn how to perform appropriate tests and measures in both office and non-office settings, what ingredients are needed to provide ergonomic recommendations, and practical resources available to assist you. This course could help improve your cash flow business. This is an intermediate level course and risk factors will not be reviewed.. :  Ergonomics in the Trenches I A Practical Ergonomics Seminar for OT’s and PT’s December 1 and 2, 2007 Many therapists are reluctant to develop an ergonomics component to their practice because they don’t feel they have the skills or knowledge base to examine, evaluate and provide interventions for their patients/clients.
