Musculoskeletal injuries have become an epidemic among employers. In North America, the cost for treatment and lost wages related to MSKs was over $200 Billion. This is not including the burden of further conditions that can arise from MSKs such as heart disease, cancer, diabetes, and obesity; which add up to over $800 Billion.
At the heart of this problem is poor movement quality - when workers are exposed to working conditions that force them to perform repetitive dysfunctional movements and postures, it adds excessive stresses to their joints and soft tissues until an injury occurs.

- No wearables, suits, or tracking markers needed
