Precision Ergonomics - How using motion capture and AI can change the ergonomics landscape
Ergonomics has long relied on subjective measurements when it comes to posture analysis. Recent breakthroughs in artificial intelligence/computer vision have brought motion capture technology to the palm of your hand – using just cellphone video to capture workers performing their job, and provide an objective risk assessment based on how those workers are moving. Just how accurate is this technology? This webinar will describe some of the history of using AI in ergonomics, and also demonstrate the results of MyAbilities PDAi technology, as presented at the recent Human Factors and Ergonomics Society conference in Seattle, Washington.
Technology moving us forward, effects of it setting us back. A look at communication devices and related ergonomic injuries
Tammy Rossomando MS.EHS, MEd, ATC will discuss how efficient modern technology is in keeping us all connected, how it happens (platforms, how devices are used, etc) and the effects of all this positive connectedness on the human body. Topics include:
– Ergonomic injuries caused by smart devices
– Possible solutions, how to combat the bad postures our devices put us in
– The potential effect of smart devices on future generations
How to Deal with Doctors Notes for Sit-Stand Desks, Napping Desks, and Segways
Join Dr. Naomi Abrams, OTR/L, CEAS, as she walks us through how deal with doctors notes for ergonomic accommodations, who the burden of accomodation falls on, and how to structure your ergonomic program to reduce the need for expensive accommodations and prevent workplace injury.
Bolstering your Ergonomic Program with Predictive Analytics
Kirsty Angerer, better known as the Traveling Ergonomist, along with Professor Alan Hedge give a comparative look on how UK ergonomics and safety programs are run and cover the impact that using predictive analytic software can have on your ergonomics and safety program.
Anatomy, Pathology and Healing Process of Ergonomics Injuries
Ronald Porter, PT, CEAS lll covers the anatomy and pathology for types of musculoskeletal disorders that occur to the body, what happens to the body when it is injured and a timeline for healing, and the risks of returning to work activities too soon and ideas for healing or injury prevention.
RSI Risk Reduction and RollerMouse
Keith Osborne CEAS, CWS, MFT details data collected from 14 different workers, with varying degrees of assessed risk, and the effect of using the RollerMouse on their pain, discomfort, and work. The estimated cost savings for the employees with increased productivity and reduced lost time will astound you!
A Productivity Analysis of 6 Popular Ergonomic Mouse Designs
Jessica Cappelletto of McGill University shares the results of a productivity and comfort study of 6 different handheld mouse designs. From vertical, adjustable and everywhere in-between the results of the study may surprise you.
Sit-Stand Desks, Are They Voodoo Ergonomics?
Craig Chasen, CEES takes a deep dive into sit/stand desks and their effects on workplace ergonomics. Is standing really that much better for you? Do the benefits of standing outweigh the other potential ergonomic issues that come from it? Watch the webinar and find out!
