Back injuries cost companies millions of dollars each year. To assist you in reducing back injury related cost, The Center for Work Rehabilitation, Inc. offers the B-200 Isoinertial Back Evaluation. Using this as a Post Hire tool you can test the lumbar section of the spine for strength, power and range of motion. The B-200 measures all three planes, flexion, lateral flexion, and rotation simultaneously. The difference between this and other computerized testing equipment is the B-200 compares the individual to him/herself for validity of effort.
Before a new hire starts his/her employment with your company the B-200 will indicate any back dysfunction. There is a computer-generated printout showing the results of the test. This gives you a baseline to look back on should a back injury be reported.
It is an inexpensive way to have a little piece of mind.
