Ergonomics, Workflow and Design
Esaote has started some years ago a review of its approach to the topics of Ergonomics, Workflow and Design in Diagnostic Ultrasound. This new approach, started in Europe, has been recently consolidated in the US with the presence of Esaote systems in some important Clinical Institutions where we have been able to get precious feedbacks and ideas from many experienced Sonographers and Physicians.
The Society of Diagnostic Medical Sonography (SDMS) has released an updated version of the "Industry Standards for the Prevention of Work-Related Musculoskeletal Disorders in Sonography."
This document is the product of a 2016 conference on work-related musculoskeletal disorders that involved 26 professional sonography organizations, accreditation bodies, and manufacturers. The document updates a 2003 version.
Esaote is proud to be an active participant in the 2016 Consensus Conference on Work-Related Musculoskeletal Disorders:
A white paper on WRMSDs in sonography that was commissioned by the SDMS, authored by Susan Murphey, BS, RDMS, RDCS, CECD of Essential Work Wellness, is available at the following link:
The white paper is a resource for sonographers, educators, employers, and manufacturers who want to understand WRMSDs and their impact.
