Many companies face a continuous challenge to control the ever-increasing costs associated with work-related injuries, including musculoskeletal disorder (MSD) injuries principally caused by a mismatch in workers’ physical abilities and the physical job demands. When hiring for physically demanding jobs, companies seek to avoid these mismatches. That’s where Cost Reduction Technology’s (CRT) isokinetic pre-employment evaluation can be a big help, through an objective measurement of the applicant’s muscle strength and range of motion for the knees, shoulders, and trunk.
