Geared specifically to needs of AADRMT members, the hour-long presentation by Carrie Schmitz, manager technical publications and ergonomic research, and Wendy McCubbin, sr. marketing manager, workspace wellness from Ergotron, will discuss ergonomic and wellness concerns prevalent within the dental office.
“Ergonomic research shows that an individual’s physical and emotional well-being is enhanced when environments are personally controllable and predictable,” said Schmitz. “Empowering technicians to make these choices for themselves can improve their outlook and patient interaction.”
Ergotron has been conducting a case study at Craniofacial Imaging in Minneapolis, since June, 2012, outfitting several technician work areas with sit-stand workstations. The goal of the year-long study is to gather information about what comfort and productivity gains could be achieved by staff constrained by factors common in their field.
“Sit-stand workstations allow technicians to modify their work posture from sit to stand at any point throughout the day and as their body demands,” said McCubbin. “The act of standing more has natural and inherent physical and mental benefits while reducing the health risks that researchers link to prolonged sitting.”
