AktivCorporate Health Programs
A healthy and happy workforce is more motivated, productive and efficient. When employees are both physically and mentally well then they will take fewer sick days, have a more positive attitude to their work and will be more productive. We all understand the stress of the modern workplace. Many jobs are sedentary and involve long hours working on a computer or speaking on the telephone. On a most basic level, this can lead to a lack of general fitness, which in turn can translate into physical problems.
At AktivOrtho™, we encourage companies to take time to look after their employees’ well-being, as the benefits are many. Co-founded by leading German orthopaedic specialist and former surgeon, Dr. Gerd Mueller, AktivOrtho is the only comprehensive healthcare provider for physical rehabilitation medicine including orthopaedic, neurological and gynaecological rehabilitation in India. We also provide sports rehabilitation, pain management, prevention, medical training therapy (MTT) and weight management solutions.
Dr. Mueller is also the Founder of the Rueckenzentrum group of centres in Germany. Besides their specialization in rehabilitation, prevention, pain management and sports medicine, the Rueckenzentrum group is working successfully on occupational healthcare programs with many of Germany’s largest companies including Mercedes Daimler, Deutsche Telekom, Unilever, etc. For more information: http://www.ruecken-zentrum.de/hamburg-rueckenzentrum-am-michel/betriebl-gesundheitsfoerderung/referenzen/. Dr. Mueller and his team are bringing this expertise to India.
AktivOrtho designs specialized occupational health care programs for a variety of businesses, from offices to manufacturing sites with each program customized to fit your organizational needs. These programs can address different issues but the main areas considered are:
Ergonomics – The science of tailoring workplace conditions and job demands to the physical capability of the workforce. Whilst many Ergonomic programs focus on changing the workplace conditions and job demands, we differ in our approach with an emphasis on enhancing the employees’ physical capabilities. This helps not only in reducing mechanical stress and avoiding injuries but also in increasing the physical and mental potential of the individual.
Pain Management & Physiotherapy – We provide state-of-the-art treatment facilities at your workplace, addressing musculoskeletal problems with the best tools and techniques. We also enable a smooth transition between therapy and prevention so that you are adequately strengthened to take care of yourself!
General Physical Wellness – Our program covers not just injury prevention and management but also health promotion. It has been proven that exercise helps to reduce the risk of heart disease, cancer and type-2 Diabetes. Our dedicated therapists work very hard to make exercise an integral part of your life. This might involve a fitness-training program using AktivOrtho’s advanced German training equipment or something as simple as a series of exercises that you can do at your desk.
Diet & Nutrition – AktivOrtho has the exclusive license in India for the metabolic balance® program, a customized weight management program devised in Germany. It helps to regulate your weight healthily and naturally, and strengthens your metabolism gently and permanently. It ensures that your body receives all the nutrients and vitamins you need for optimum concentration and mental performance at work.
Stress Management – Our therapists teach you specific exercises to improve your cognitive function, reduce stress, improve your mood and give you good mental balance to perform well during moments of high pressure.
Our approach is simple. As we assess the fitness levels of your employees and their workplace, our objective is to identify and develop the musculoskeletal-health statistics for your company. This enables us to design a better model of care and helps you to understand your company’s needs. Then together, we address the musculoskeletal issues individually to achieve optimum health for your staff. Our core competence is the prevention and treatment of disorders and diseases of the musculoskeletal system. Our therapists guide your employees to achieve sustainable, health-conscious behavior and help to establish the importance of health promotion and prevention in the corporate culture. Here are some of the services we can offer your staff –
FUNCTIONAL ASSESSMENT SESSIONS:
- Functional assessment measures a person’s musculoskeletal profile e.g. weaknesses, strengths, imbalances, etc. in a structured way. It provides the basis for functional improvement, through therapy, training or adjustment at the workplace.
- It is a general fitness indicator for day-to-day activities.
- At the end of the assessment, employees receive a report which will reveal potential causes of pain or discomfort, identifying clinically, the issues involved as well as the nature of imbalance.
ON-SITE TREATMENT SESSIONS:
Our team of expert physiotherapists, who are highly qualified and internationally trained, provides on-site sessions of manual therapy, supervised exercise therapy or sports physiotherapy saving you the inconvenience of travelling to a facility. We specialise in the treatment of:
- All types of acute and chronic lumbar pain and cervical spine disorders
- Peripheral joint disorders (shoulder, elbow, hand, hip, knee, foot)
- Muscular aches and muscle imbalances
- Sports injuries
- Post-Surgical Complications
These are short, informative sessions featuring contemporary concepts of occupational ergonomics, common work-related musculoskeletal disorders (WRMSD’s) and the latest advances in the management of these disorders.
In workshops, we teach the practical application of ergonomic principles taking you beyond just understanding and identifying risk factors. The members roll up their sleeves and learn the correct ways to handle materials and equipment plus how to effectively exercise at work.
Work-outs are even better when done in groups. They are a great way to reduce stress and facilitate team-building. Our group classes are scheduled weekly.
