Returning an injured worker to their role, following time away from work due to injury or illness, can be likened to returning an athlete to the field after time away from sport, in that appropriate rehabilitation can be the key to a successful return to their previous form and physical fitness.
KINNECT can offer assistance and support with regards to rehabilitation back into the workforce, through the design of individualised work hardening or physical conditioning programs aimed at achieving functional work outcomes.
These programs are designed to simulate or duplicate the work tasks and functions of the job, in a healthy, safe, and risk free environment. In doing so, this reduces the risk of re injury and reduces the time required to achieve a full recovery and return to work.
Structured and progressive work hardening sessions increase the physical and positional tolerances of workers for their given duties. Prescribed exercises also support improved muscle coordination and endurance and improve work feasibility.
