Completion of this subject within the degree Masters of Rehabilitation will not enable Australian registration of overseas qualified physiotherapists or occupational therapists.
Ergonomics focuses on the human-machine-environment (HME) model and promotes a systems based approach to understanding problems within this model. Breakdowns in this HME system may present as musculoskeletal problems. This subject develops the students' understanding of the components of the HME model and how they may affect the person. Through a series of on-line learning modules the subject is intended to develop assessment and management skills related to components of the HME system for the clinical therapist. Ergonomics is not confined to the traditional workplace and the issues presented and discussed in this subject are as relevant to the athlete as they are to the worker.
