Collaborative Research Study Aims to Prevent Firefighter Injury Nationwide
Date:9/10/2009

and Technology (NIST) along with the U.S. Department of Commerce released a report in 2005, ''Economic Consequences of Firefighter Injuries and Their Prevention.'' They found that the estimated cost of addressing firefighter injuries and of efforts to prevent them is $2.8 to $7.8 billion per year. The study was able to obtain workers compensation information that was specific to occupational codes for firefighters, injured and non-injured alike. Estimated health care costs alone accounted for $830 to $980 million of direct and indirect costs.

These sobering circumstances and statistics have motivated internationally recognized injury prevention researchers from the University of Waterloo in Ontario, Canada, to team-up with a world-leading sports performance athletic training company, Athletes' Performance and the Andrews Institute for Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine, to begin developing evidence-based injury prevention programs for "occupational athletes". Ultimately, the way in which an individual moves and activates their muscles will dictate who will and will not become injured.

HOW IT BEGAN

The University of Waterloo's Department of Kinesiology is the first and one of the most established departments of its kind in North America. Throughout the last 20 years, University professors Dr. Jack Callaghan and Dr. Stuart McGill have conducted hundreds of scientific studies that demonstrate how the body's tissues function and become damaged during work and at play. They continue to look for new and innovative ways to conduct research, engaging professors and students alike. Their graduate program, recognized and respected nationally and internationally, gives students the ability to conduct original research.
