Ergonomist Mark Heidebrecht Featured on Robotics & Automation Video Podcast

Mark Heidebrecht of Ergonomics International was recently interviewed by Abdul Montaqim, editor for Robotics & Automation News. The video podcast can be viewed here. Heidebrecht discussed the importance of an automation ergonomic SaaS solution during COVID-19.

According to Heidebrecht, COVID-19 has forced manufacturers to be agile and inventive without sacrificing the core necessities mandated with ergonomic disciplines. Small or large manufacturers cannot test against a measure until that measure is accurate and reliable. Creating an automated certification process to train providers in the steps and accurate collection of physical demands is a game-changing event.

Automation via remote SaaS (Software as a Service) documents the physical demand story for all parties involved: the doctor, the employer, the employee, the case manager, the insurer, the specialists, legal, and the rehabilitation professional.

Robotics & Automation News, established in 2015, is one of the most widely read industrial publications globally.

About Ergonomics International

Each with more than twenty years’ experience working from forensic investigation to factory floors, Ergonomics International focuses on designing and implementing tools that are evidence-based. Mark Heidebrecht (MSE, ACSM-EP, CPE/CHFP) and Sam Bradbury (MAOM, ATC, ACSM-EP, CPE/CHFP) built one of the largest ergonomic libraries globally, including one of the largest occupational epidemiology datasets to make the most informed decisions.

In addition to one of the largest data libraries, the company utilizes a statistical epidemiologist and assembled peer-reviewed studies focused on ensuring the latest and best answers to ergonomic and human factors impacting the challenges that companies face.

Recently, the company introduced one of the most powerful software tools for companies and insurers to reduce musculoskeletal injury risk. This mobile compatible software tool provides the best information to help management quantify and mitigate risk.

Ergonomics International’s EvidenceBased Risk Analysis Software Suite

Ergonomics International’s Evidence‐Based Risk Analysis Software Suite utilizes standardized tools which have high validity and reliability. These tools provide management with real-time data to make evidence‐based decisions, yet data is simple enough for ergonomic, safety, occupational health, Lean Manufacturing, and Six-Sigma professionals to understand and apply.

Dashboards are customizable providing the most valuable information at each level of the enterprise. Leading indicators allow users to get ahead of injuries and focus on prevention with the use of cost-effective tools.

Mobile analysis tools include:

EPDA™ (Employee Perceived Exertion Analysis)

Z‐EBRA™ (Proprietary Evidence-Based Risk Analysis)

NERPA – (Novel Ergonomic Postural Assessment)

Cumulative Lifting Analysis

ISO-based Ergonomic Analysis

Manual Material Handling Guidelines

NIOSH Lifting Equation (The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health)

ACGIH Hand Threshold Limit Value

The mobile compatible SaaS (Software as a Service) solution accurately documents and reports risks in real-time. Mobile compatibility eliminates traditional methods of dual entry that create lags in data analysis and potential introduction of errors.
