After evaluating the types of injuries most commonly suffered by employees, the company determined that a comprehensive musculoskeletal injury prevention program would best fit their needs. They selected Briotix Health’s Industrial Sports Medicine™ solution with an emphasis on early discomfort screenings, health and wellness consultations, and ergonomic education to cut claims cost.

    Using best-practice early discomfort management, a Briotix Health provider
    delivered one-on-one personalized screenings to employees to address
    discomfort early in the injury cycle, significantly reducing the likelihood the
    discomfort would escalate to a claim.

    Individual and group health and wellness consultations were offered including the development of a customized fitness and flexibility program designed to prepare the body for and help recover from the physical strain of daily tasks.

    Biomechanics training, ergonomic assessments, and task analysis were conducted to reduce the risk of work-related injury and educate employees on the safest way to complete job tasks.


Of those employees engaged by a Briotix Health provider, 93% of discomforts were resolved without converting to a claim. Of those that did result in a claim, the average cost was $5,257 lower.
