Ergonomics International offers two very specific types of Patent Pending evidence-based software solutions for your business.
Z-EBRA - Next Generation Evidence-Based Risk Analysis
Z-EBRA is an unique, inexpensive, yet powerful Software as a Service (SaaS) system. This system is mobile compatible across devices. We calculate "true" risk of a job or task and allow the ability to group tasks to look at the "true" risk of a job.
This patent pending,evidence-based process, takes into consideration the most accurate peer reviewed literature and real-time collaborative data analysis. This allows your company to assess the risks of jobs and tasks.
Our software has been developed with an epidemiologist utilizing statistical measures and prediction models to calculate true risk of job tasks. We take simple data input streams to calculate and create information that becomes a powerful tool for decision making.
Rather than relying on cost-avoidance predictions, we provide management and decision makers data based on job and body part exposures; thereby demonstrating accurate return-on-investment models.
The system quantifies risk and produces solution recommendations that management and ergonomic teams can use to fix the problem; not just measure them.
Ideal job rotations can be determined using the software's risk model. This is important for specific states such as Colorado where Rule 17 is critical in claim determination and adequate recovery is part of claim acceptance.
Evidence-Based Physical Demand Analysis
A robust physical demand documentation system is the foundation of any functional testing, postoffer testing, or return-to-work testing process. Without proper analysis and documentation of the physical demands; testing validity and reliability suffer resulting in potential legal issues.
Much different than ergonomic risk analysis, physical demand analysis quantifies the physical requirements of job tasks.
We use peer-reviewed evidence-based definitions to standardize the collection of physical demand data and video capture technology to visually document postures job tasks.
This accurate physical demand data can then be used to develop job specific functional testing for use in the hiring process or return to work process post injury or illness.
This process provides a company with the long-term prevention of work-related musculoskeletal injuries.
