Strength: The new vital sign of workplace health.

The loss of muscle mass and strength due to increasing age and lack of physical activity create a true risk factor in the workplace today. Individuals who fall into this category are at risk for injury, disease loss of functionality, reduced capability of being active and increased body weight.

Consider what impact loss of strength has on your workforce:

  • Increased medical and disability claims
  • Decreased ability to efficiently and safely perform a job
  • Increased lost-time
  • Decreased daily functionality

This means 50% of workers are at Moderate or High Risk for developing one or more of the following:

  • Injury on the job or at home
  • Metabolic Syndrome
  • Cardiovascular Disease
  • Type II Diabetes

What is the PSRA or the MSA?

The IPCS PSRA and the MSA, both unique benefit/wellness offerings, can have an impact on an individual’s health within your incumbent workforce, as well as on a company’s bottom line. Quick to implement and easy to manage, the testing shows your employees how to increase strength, reducing obesity and boosting functionality. As a result, your company’s injury and disease claims can be reduced significantly.

How Do the PSRA and the MSA Work?

Our PSRA and MSA are 20-25 minute isokinetic evaluations which assess a person’s overall strength by evaluating their knee and shoulder strength, and use strength to body weight ratio to assess the worker’s overall health.  PSRA and MSA testing can be done on-site at your facility using our mobile testing unit.

What makes the PSRA and the MSA different and how can it work for YOUR company?

Our PSRA and MSA assess the risk of your employees for injury and disease-serious costly injuries and diseases such as torn muscles, rotator cuff issues, Type II Diabetes and heart disease.

Let our PSRA and MSA assist in identifying employees who have no idea that they are at risk for injury or disease, which most likely leads to the inability to perform their job safely, increased lost time, and decreased daily functionality and high medical claims costs.
