Halo®, the CSTD designed to fit.
Repetitive motion injuries are a significant problem for healthcare workers and cost employers more than $20 billion annually.1 According to NIOSH and OSHA:
- Musculoskeletal injuries, such as carpal tunnel syndrome, develop in the hands and wrists due to repetitive, forceful maneuvers;2
- Pharmacists, technicians and Nurses have a significantly higher than normal incidence rate of repetitive motion injuries;3,4
- Minimizing twisting motions and designing ergonomic tools will help reduce these issues.2
Discover Halo® – the CSTD designed to reduce repetitive motion injuries.
- Minimal force required to attach parts;
- Straight push-on pull-apart movements reduce twisting motions;
- Components designed to distribute work over a larger surface to reduce strain, as recommended by NIOSH and OSHA.2
