Ergonomics & Endoscopy
Do you know what the practice of endoscopy is?
An endoscopy procedure is performed to visually exam the inside of your digestive system e.g. esophagus, intestines and colon; the most common procedures are a colonoscopy and an upper endoscopy.
But did you know that practitioners of endoscopy often experience musculoskeletal pain and injury associated with awkward postures and the practitioner / endoscope interface required during endoscopic procedures?
