Facilitating Progressive Mobility for Healthcare Patients with Ergonomics

December 10, 2014 2PM Eastern

Presented by:

Guy Fragala Ph.D., PE, CSP, CSPHP

This session considers the importance of progressive mobility for healthcare patients and what is required by the caregiver to perform the tasks required to achieve effective progressive mobility. Current evidence has indicated that early and continued mobility is beneficial to the healthcare patient to enhance healing and for maintaining quality of life. Negative outcomes from immobility are well reported in the literature. Positioning in bed, bed egress and up in chair are discussed with a focus on the difficulty involved for the caregiver to perform these tasks. A presentation of the occupational risk factors of force, repetition and posture demonstrates how these activities put caregivers at risk for serious musculoskeletal injuries. Through application of the concepts of ergonomics, solutions and interventions are presented which can facilitate assisting patients with mobility and reduce occupational risk to caregivers.


Provider approved by the California Board of Registered Nursing, Provider Number CEP 15826, for 1 contact hour.
