Manual handling is any activity that requires the use of force exerted by a person to lift, carry, lower, push, pull, move or hold any item, including a person. It also includes work involving repetitive activities, sustained muscle exertion, and fixed postures.
Injuries to Carers' in healthcare, aged care, rehabilitation and disability services due to the handling of people are a major risk. However, these injuries are preventable by using the right equipment at the right times.
The service from MobilityHQ was first class, my wheelchair was ordered and delivered fully assembled faster than I can get an envelope delivered!
