Action In Motion involves the observation of an individual performing manual tasks. The aim is to provide feedback and coaching on both the manual handling technique and key risk factors for injury.
WFR’s uses an App-based tool to video participants performing a task in which postures, body position, load handling, and job preparation are analysed. Feedback to the individual occurs by viewing the video, providing ‘real-time’ commentary on performance. The tool also allows the Exercise Physiologist to delineate within the video, marking out inadequate postures, actions, and hazards.
Upon the video being reviewed, coaching on manual handling technique and risk reduction is provided. The action is completed again, and the tool is used for a side-by-side, simultaneous comparison of the low risk versus high risk manual tasking behaviours.
