PainPoint App

Prevent Musculoskeletal Disorders (MSD) at Work

A mobile app that delivers a very basic ergonomic assessment by running through a series of diagrams and questions to pinpoint musculoskeletal pain, identify possible sources, and discover practical solutions – right from your smartphone!

The results are depicted on a body map, with recommendations to address work-related MSD hazards that could be contributing to your discomfort.

No personal data is collected when using this app, but summary results can be shared with others (at your discretion) in order to report hazards or foster solutions.

While a professional ergonomic assessment is considered the most effective way to address work-related discomfort, this app is a good first step to help you recognize the signs of MSDs and take action for prevention.
