Medical Ergonomics Program
MHealthy Medical Ergonomics and Occupational Therapy Services provide guidance and assistance at the job site to facilitate a successful match between the employee's abilities and the job site needs. The MHealthy occupational therapist can identify employee strategies and accommodations to optimize work capacities, and to implement a trial of those solutions at the worksite in collaboration with the department. Issues addressed include musculoskeletal discomfort and limitations in mobility, coordination, strength, vision, hearing, memory and organizational skills. These individual services for faculty and staff are available at no charge, through a physician's referral.
In order to coordinate services with the physician and department, candidates for the medical services should ask their physician to fax a request for a worksite consultation to MHealthy Occupational Therapy at (734) 734-615-1570 (please dial all seven digits when faxing).
