October 01, 1987
New strength testing equipment at JMC for Occupational Medicine. The Ergometric Strength Testing Unit is used to determine whether or not an employee has the strength to perform a specific job function. It can also be used to identify an employee's maximum strength level--what the employee can safely handle during an eight-hour workday without incurring undue risk and strain. It is used for pre-employment examinations, disability evaluations, work conditioning (progress monitoring) and job redesign.
