Welcome to Friesen Ergonomics Inc.
Musculoskeletal injuries (MSI) occur from repeated physical movements which may damage tendons, nerves, muscles, and other soft body tissues. Occupations ranging from meatpackers to computer operators can experience MSI. Musculoskeletal injuries can occur when muscles are kept tense for very long periods of time, due to poor posture and/or repetitive motions.
Good working postures and ergonomic working conditions can help prevent or halt the progress of the disorder. An ergonomics assessment can help prevent MSI.
