Webinar

Wearable technology has become a core element in the injury prevention and rehabilitation process for professional sports bodies.
This is due to the accurate and valid information provided by the wearable technology which enables:

  • The physical demands of the tasks to be measured and assessed
  • The physical capacity of the individual to be measured and assessed
  • The identification of injury risk when the demands of the task are greater than the capacity of the individual

This information is also essential in the prevention of injury in the workplace, and the return to work process following injury. However, the use of sports-based technology, data analysis and report is not practical or cost-effective for use in the WHS industry.
Therefore, with the assistance of the Department of Innovation, Industry and Science and the University of Technology, Sydney, Preventure created a cost-effective and sustainable wearable technology tool that enables the measurement of the physical demands of individual work tasks and the capacity of workers to perform these tasks.
This involves:

  • The creation of the benchmark reports using the safest methods to perform manual handling work tasks
  • Assessment of workers performing these work tasks and comparison to the benchmark to identify injury risks for uninjured workers, or guide rehabilitation for workers preparing to return to full duties

Trials of this new wearable technology were conducted with several companies between February and June, 2018.

LEARNING OUTCOMES
Delegates who attend this session will get:

  • Background on the use of wearable technology for movement analysis
  • An overview of the data analysis  and reporting process
  • Various case studies involving the use of wearable technology to identify and reduce injury risk and guide RTW

YOUR PRESENTER
SCOTT COLEMAN, Program Director, Preventure Pty Ltd

Scott's primary focus is exploring various workplace injury prevention methods using innovative and comprehensive approaches based on Sports Science methodology. This approach evolved from the combination of over 20 years of experience working with elite athletes (primarily with Rowing Australia and Athletics Australia), with the skills developed working in private practice treating injured workers.

Over the past five years Scott has been partnering with large organisations and Workers’ Compensation insurance brokers / agents to reduce the costs associated with workplace injury. At the core of Scott’s work is the ability to reduce the injury risk of workers by combining sports injury prevention techniques, movement analysis using wearable technology / data analytics and the psycho-social elements specific to the individual and the workplace.
