Prevention Inventions & Ergonomics
Ergonomics an applied science that coordinates the design of devices, systems, and physical working conditions with the capacities and requirements of the worker, also called human engineering.
"Some 50% of our nation's workforce is affected by work-related Musculoskeletal Disorders (MSDs) during their working lives, and are a leading cause of disabilities." National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health.
At first, ergonomics was focused on the workplace, but now it extends into all aspects of human activity. Whether it's physical activity in the home, or at your job, ergonomics plays an increasing role in helping to prevent and heal injuries and eliminate pain.
Dr. Stewart is the Founder and President of Prevention Invention, LLCs. Prevention Inventions is an organization devoted to implementing ergonomic practices, providing ergonomic solutions and new ergonomic inventions, and providing ergonomically designed products, has been a leading proponent of this extremely important scientific discipline.
"Over the years, I have treated hundreds and hundreds of patients who were suffering from Repetitive Stress Injuries (RSIs), such as Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, and MSDs from poor workplace conditions."
Because of this alarming situation, Dr. Stewart began extensive research and development programs, trying to find better ergonomic practices and products. This led to Prevention Inventions, LLC and The Lap-Stop, an ergonomically designed computer stress reliever.
Whether you work in a business, play video games, or sew as a hobby, improper ergonomic practices can cause you problems and eventually lead to injury and pain.
Dr. Stewart is an expert in this field and can help you prevent these types of problems as well as provide the treatment and the healing necessary to help you feel better and improve your productivity.
