Spinal Health MSD

Affecting and limiting your body’s movement, Musculoskeletal Disorder (MSD) is the largest cause of workplace injury in Australia. Responsible for around 13% of injuries, MSD is caused by repetitive lifting or pushing of heavy equipment or objects too far from your body. In aged and community care, MSD is responsible for around 80% of injuries. Improve your spinal health with assistance from the innovative Ezi-makeTM.

 

Causes

MSD is caused by continual repetition of tasks, forceful exertions and sustained awkward positions that push your body too far. Poor work practices and unsafe lifting techniques are major risk factors that contribute to MSD. Seemingly easy tasks like computer use or moving equipment can increase your risk of MSD.

 

Prevention

Studies have shown that even the simple task of daily bed making consists of a detrimental load of unsafe movements and lifting. The Ezi-makeTM assists in easing the pressures putting you at risk of MSD when making a bed. TheEzi-makeTM will help you avoid detrimental movements and injury-causing lifting when it comes to making your bed each day. Making it 6 times easier, the Ezi-makeTM reduces the load on your body and consequently reducing your risk of MSD.
In the workplace, mechanical aids like the Ezi-makeTM help make workplaces a safer environment with reduced risks of MSD-causing situations. Demonstrated by research, lifting and moving technique training is inadequate in preventing injuries and risks in the workplace. Using an engineered solution like the Ezi-makeTM is an ideal way to discourage risky practice and injury.

Take the first step in minimising risks of MSD by investing an Ezi-makeTM, helping you safely complete one of your most common lifting and moving chores.
