KINNECT offer tailored onsite physiotherapy solutions to employers to effectively reduce the cost of injuries in the workplace. Our Onsite Physiotherapy Clinics are run each and everyday around Australia and Internationally. We work with our clients to establish and implement programs that achieve an ROI for them.
Early Access to Treatment
KINNECT provide an onsite priority service arrangement that is easily accessible for employees, as we believe that early intervention at the workplace in the acute phase of discomfort can prevent an injury from occurring. Early interventions for injuries and symptoms will result in a quicker recovery, maintain employees at work longer and improve their productivity.
Physiotherapy Services that Achieve Outcomes
KINNECT onsite programs not only provide treatment, but they are aimed at educating and reinforcing self-management to minimise any dependence on “hands on” intervention. Our Physiotherapist(s) will also be able to provide onsite solutions in regards to group training / exercise programs, injury management and on the job coaching / monitoring workplace concerns or tasks to eliminate the cause of the symptom / injury. We believe that providing onsite physiotherapy services to employees allows for improved workplace productivity and reduced disruption to daily operations by minimizing the need for employees to seek treatment elsewhere.
KINNECT are the Leading Onsite Physiotherapy Provider in Australia, having delivered Onsite Physiotherapy Clinics in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, Perth and throughout Australia and Internationally.
Evidence-based early intervention
The effectiveness of early intervention has been well documented in numerous case studies.
One such study is the introduction of an early intervention program for poultry meat processing workers. Through onsite physiotherapy, the poultry meat processing plant was able to achieve an 18% reduction in workers compensation claims. They also achieved a 37% reduction in days absent and a $831 reduction in average costs per claim (Donovan et al., 2017)¹.
Another recent study investigated the introduction of a workplace-based program aimed at reducing musculoskeletal injuries (MSIs) in healthcare workers. The early intervention program reduced compensation and healthcare costs and provided quicker return to work outcomes (Badii et al., 2006)².
