This course will review ergonomics, increase awareness of repetitive motion problems and how they may be impacted by operatory design, instrument utilization / design / selection, sharpening skills / options and a variety of other issues. A clinician’s ability to identify ergonomic issues is directly related to improved patient care. Detailed information will be offered on a variety of products as well as design options to best allow you to fulfill your requirements in relating to the total health of your patients. Join us for an opportunity to share, learn and critique all the above, to gather information from your peers, which you can then incorporate into your daily practice routine!
This course will provide information for the clinicians to be able to:
- Design a program to enhance patient treatment while identifying ergonomic needs to provide increased quality of care
- Identify and recognize instruments available to select from for a variety of patient conditions and improved clinical outcomes
- Distinguish habits that lead to repetitive movement which may cause harm to the clinician’s instrumentation abilities
