Human Ergonomics Workshop

Eversince the changing industrial revolution, the essentiality to understand the work needs, working postures & associated diseases and risk factors have gained momentum amongst healthcare professionals. The science of Ergonomy is a hollistic approach where the therapist is required to rehabilitate his client back to his functional needs. This requires a deep understanding not only about the client but also about the environment he belongs to.
Therefore, we are pleased to invite physiotherapits/physical therapist for the Human Ergonomics Orientation Workshop held on 4th Feb, 2012 .
