Carpal Tunnel Syndrome and Repetitive Straining Injury

The service involves on-site testing. Each employee undergoes a detailed work and lifestyle questionnaire.

Subsequently, nerve velocity testing and a medical review of the test results is provided and remedial treatment at a reversible stage can be implemented.

Is your company testing for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome before it hires new employees?

Why it should!

A single compensation claim if it results in bilateral CTS surgery will typically cost your company $20,000.
Noront Audiometric can identify CTS in new and existing employees through Nerve Conduction Screening.

Who should be tested?

Employees in high risk job classes such as:

  • Mechanics
  • Heavy equipment operators
  • Millwrights
  • Sheet metal workers
  • Heavy computer operators
  • And any job class that uses air driven tools.

The benefits of our nerve conduction screening:

  • Earlier detection allows for remedial treatment at a reversible stage, thus avoiding compensation costs
  • Earlier detection can avoid permanent damage
  • Continuous screening of pre-op and post-op employees
  • Job modification strategies are proposed
  • Non-surgical treatment options are presented
  • Mobile on-site testing
  • Non-invasive test procedures
  • Cost effectiveness

Features of the nerve conduction:

  • Flexible on-site testing
  • Accurate and repeatable data
  • Medical attested reports
