Pre-Employment Screening

We are happy to help design a program that would give an accurate assessment of an applicant's ability to perform a particular job.  Here are some examples of what we have screened for other companies: 

  • Lift test with various weight and various height lift

  • Lift and carry

  • Grip strength assessment

  • Lifting education 

  • Activity tolerance 

  • Balance testing

  • Flexibilty 

  • Screen for shoulder injuries

  • Assess back and neck mobility

  • Push/Pull assessment 

Work Conditioning

The industrial nature of the area demands a lot from its workers.  Many individuals work in a manual labor position requiring skilled strength activities.  After an injury either at work or away from work an employee needs to return to full function prior to being able to fully and safely perform work duties.  We can tailor the rehabilitation program to specifically address work needs and progressively build endurance for a full day of work.  

Wound Care


We are qualified to provide sharps debridement, wound care for various wound diagnoses, as well as wound-vac application and management.
