Automating the Ergonomic Process
A Soter Analytics report for ergonomists and health and safety managers outlines how its automated holistic solution using wearable technology can reduce MSD injury risk.
Workplace injuries cost individuals, organisations and society. Safety science is ever-evolving, although many industries have struggled to solve injury risks which lead to musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs).
Starting with the individual and spreading to the organisation, the wearable technology solution developed by the team at Soter Analytics helps avoid ergonomic injury by coaching workers to self-correct their movements in real-time.
Amy Hope, Principle Ergonomist at Soter Analytics, says: “The report provides insight and clearly outlines how the SoterSpine product can automate the ergonomics process.”
Soter provides the holistic solution to assess workplace organisation, to evaluate biomechanical risks of tasks, provide insight on organisational risks, and to train the individual with a minimally invasive program.
Matthew Hart, CEO and founder explains: “By gaining unbiased objective insight to an individual’s movement, Soter Analytics is able to easily identify particular areas of strain to the worker utilising key data collected by the wearable. This can then be used to improve processes and procedures in the manual handling arena.”
