MANUTENTION TRAINING: BRIEF EXPLANATION
Manual Handling strategies to prevent injuries in Patient Handling.
manutention method of patient handling has a biomechanical basis enhanced
by principles from physiotherapy and the study of human movement, the
martial arts, and weight lifting. Manutention minimises lifting and the
impact of lifting. It is a specific teaching approach based on adult learning
principles. Because of its focus on retraining specific movement patterns,
it lends itself to competency measurement.
A Manutention based manual handling program provides many benefits to your organization:
¨Significantly reduce manual handling injuries for employees and handling injuries received by clients. This is due to the focus on self-protective behaviours in Manutention trained participants and focus on the independence and safety of the client.

¨Manutention not only reduces injuries, but provides a more efficient and less mechanically stressful method of working, giving employees more energy at the end of the day. There are anecdotal reports of improved staff morale in organizations that have adopted the Manutention approach.
¨Manutention training provides an organization with an objective assessment tool for assessing the competency of their staff in the manual handling tasks they perform.
