Dr. Sinden and Ms. Sayed will discuss the importance of exercise in mitigating and facilitating injury prevention as well, during rehabilitation and return-to-work implementation. Demonstration of various wearable technology used in research conducted by the research team that informs development of evidence-based solutions to improve worker health, safety and fitness will also be provided.
