You may be familiar with workplace injuries such as carpal tunnel syndrome, tendonitis, or back strain.  These injuries are due to small, repeated traumas to the musculoskeletal system (muscles, ligaments, tendons, joints, bones) and the nervous system when the job does not match the worker's capabilities or the work station.  These injuries, also called Work Related Musculoskeletal Disorders (WMSDs), account for some of the largest costs in injury claims and lost work time in the DoD.  The Ergonomics Program at APHC (Provisional) is dedicated to decreasing those costs and to reducing worker pain and suffering.  For more information, please visit:  Ergonomics
