Prevent Work-related Musculoskeletal Disorders (WMSD)
Work-related musculoskeletal disorders are injuries that develop from carrying out repetitive workplace tasks over a long period of time. WMSD usually affect the muscles, joints & tendons and are caused by work rather than a work accident. Common workplace activities, such as bending, reaching, twisting or pulling, as well as computer-related activities, such as typing and using a mouse are the largest causes of a WMSD. Any of these actions repeated over an extended period of time will overuse and strain the muscles resulting in an injury.
Luckily, there’s Powerball – a simple yet highly effective tool that can be used to combat and prevent WMSD. Powerball actively strengthens as you spin it, leaving your muscles, joints and tendons supple and strong. When used for just a few minutes each day, Powerball’s unique isometric training acts as effective protection for your upper-body limbs and significantly lowers your risk of sustaining an injury in the workplace.
