Macmillan International Higher Education, Oct 31, 1991 - Electronic books - 358 pages
This book introduces the main elements of ergonomics to the medical professions. Written by a well-known ergonomist, it explains how improvements to working (and resting) conditions and design can help both professionals and patients. Such an understanding is essential when dealing with the pains and strains all too frequently encountered by GPs, physiotherapists, OTs, osteopaths, chiropractors and occupational physicians.
