Ergonomics and Injury Prevention Physiotherapy Singapore
Ergonomics is the applied study of designing equipment, aids and
environments that fits tasks and work to the worker. Our physiotherapy
and occupational therapy department treats a lot of workers who sustain
injuries such as repetitive strain injuries (carpal tunnel syndrome,
trigger finger, trigger point etc) as well as other related injuries
such as ankle sprains, and musculoskeletal injuries occurred at the
This led us to look for the source of the
problems, since we were mainly dealing with the end-user symptoms, and
we found that oftentimes, it is the workplace (work office, home
environment or even during play such as golf) that accounts for the
development and/or aggravation of injuries.
physiotherapists and occupational therapists, we study the human
factors and the interactions of people and the elements of their systems
(data, methods, principles) to maximize and optimize worker well being
and overall productivity and performance from a systemic point of view.
Our ergonomics goals are two folds: boosting/maintaining health, and
boosting/maintaining productivity. This, in itself, makes sense,
relevant even. The employers rely on employees and workers for
productivity, and not only does productivity suffers when an employee is
injured, the employee is also unable to participate effectively in
their own roles as mothers/fathers, house duties etc.
ergonomical and human factors design is necessary to reduce risks of
repetitive strain injuries, which develop over years, and it will boost
and bolster bottom line of productivity and worker esteem.
injuries can be severe, and can include symptoms such as pain,
crampings and aches, numbness and pins and needles. These contribute to
decreased effectiveness and efficacy, temporary or permanent disability.
Some common causes are poor work human factors (environmental layout and
design), repetitive pressure and/or strains, heavy tasks such as
lifting, pushing or pulling of heavy objects. Even sitting too long can
be poor to the worker's posture and health, in the long run, if the
design and equipment is unsuitable.
problems are prolonged poor postures, exposure to stimuli such as heat,
vibrations or cold, or simply it's an unsafe working environment with
high risk of injuries.
Physiotherapy and occupational therapy interventions will address issues pertaining mainly to:
- injury prevention at the workplace
- returning to work within reasonable time frames
- injury management and rehabilitation (physiotherapy and hand therapy)
- health and wellness programs such as core strengthening to prevent postural injuries
and workstation assessments for employers to ensure a safe and
productive-designed workplace for their key assets, their employees.
