Physical Therapy to Offer Work Station Assessments

Sixth-year students in the Program for Physical Therapy will analyze the ergonomics of faculty and staff work stations as part of their required course work.
Physical Therapy students in the sixth and final year of their program are in need of faculty and staff volunteers to participate in an individualized ergonomic and work station set-up assessment sessions.

The students, as part of their course work, are required to assess the ergonomics and work station set ups within the Saint Louis University community for application of curricular content and to improve communication skills.

All sessions will occur at the volunteer's work station and will require a picture of the volunteer at the work station for the purpose of reviewing the student's work. Each assessment session will last approximately 30 minutes. The sessions will occur between Monday, Oct. 7, and Thursday, Nov. 7.

Volunteers must be willing to participate in a single appointment, which will be individually arranged with the assigned physical therapy students. This appointment will happen at the volunteer's work station. During this time, the student will request information regarding the volunteer's daily tasks at the work station and the time spent at each task.

Those interested in assisting the students in the Program in Physical Therapy develop their assessment skills while receiving feedback on their individual work station set up should call or email the course coordinator, Chris Sebelski, DPT, in the Department of Physical Therapy and Athletic Training at or at 314-977-8724.
