WELCOME TO A SAFER WORKING ENVIRONMENT





What is an ArjoHuntleigh ergonomic solution? It goes far beyond the equipment. Our experience, gained from decades of listening to healthcare professionals, has enabled us to identify and provide the key elements for an ergonomic working environment.

Our solutions offer not just advanced ergonomic equipment and systems, but also the staff training that is required for safe, high-quality care. Through our consultancy services, we create a tailored package optimised to meet the needs of individual care facilities.

We have built up a unique knowledge bank on ergonomics over the past 40 years by listening to
healthcare professionals.



Our experience is built into the design of the equipment. We pass onour knowledge of sound ergonomic principles to care facilities through training and injury prevention programmes.
 



ArjoHuntleigh understands the care process and how it can be optimised to improve patients’ and residents’ quality of life and enhance working conditions for carers. These insights are outlined in the dynamic model of high-quality care: The Positive Eight.

Our Clinical Consultants analyze a care facility’s needs for working space, mechanical aids and staff training, and generate a tailored plan to create optimum conditions for achieving Positive Eight benefits.


Static and dynamic loads: risks beyond lifting

The dynamic load (lifting, pushing, pulling) is generally accepted as an important risk factor leading to musculoskeletal disorders in nursing. However, the static load, for example bending for long periods of time when bathing patients, is also a major risk factor. Problems due to static load will emerge sooner or later in any prevention project.
