Repetitive strain injuries caused by manual crushing of pills can be painful.
In most nursing and assisted care homes medicines are regularly ground to assist patients who have difficulty swallowing pills on their own.
Research has shown that the manual grinding of medicines cause repetitive strain injuries or related problems for employees who are responsible for preparing their patient's medicine.
Care provider complaints include:
- Throbbing pulse
- Acute pain in elbows
- Shoulder strain
- Upper and lower back pain
As a result of the repetitive motion and physical exertion, facilities caring for patients requiring their medication to be crushed experience an increase in staff medical complaints and missed work days.
After extensive research, which included collaboration with users in the field we have developed the Severo electric medicine grinder. The result is an affordable, compact device which pulverises even the toughest medication effortlessly in eight seconds thereby protecting your employees in the health care sector from expensive and inconvenient repetitive strain injuries.
