At iPM Occupational Therapy we believe a good ergonomics program ensures that the right tools and equipment are provided, and that employees are properly trained to use their bodies and the equipment to their full potential. Ergonomics is a partnership between good design and good education. Our goal is to work with you to reduce physical discomfort and strain, poor workplace design and repetitive task injuries.
