Medical Ergonomics Program

MHealthy Medical Ergonomics provides guidance and assistance at the worksite to facilitate a successful match between the faculty or staff member's abilities and the work tasks being performed. An occupational therapist will identify employee strategies and accommodations to optimize work capacities, and can 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.

If you have further questions, please contact ergonomics@med.umich.edu or call (734) 763-0852.
