Musculoskeletal Disorders or MSDs are injuries and disorders that affect the human body’s movement or musculoskeletal system (i.e. muscles, tendons, ligaments, nerves, discs, blood vessels, etc.).
When a worker is asked to do work that is outside his body’s capabilities and limitations, he is being asked to put his musculoskeletal system at risk.
Working on traditional Scaffolding is one of the major reasons of musculo-skeletal disorders in the worker.
Thousands of workers have been affected by this disorder because of the position they have to work in traditional scaffolding.
As the scaffolding platforms are fixed at a particular position. Workers are always required to extend their bodies to reach the desired work location. This makes them feel fatigued & tired over a period of time, creating many health issues.
APEL Mast climber is an automatic work platform that moves up & down and can be stopped at any required height.
It can be adjusted at a micro and optimum level according to the worker and allows workers to carry out their activities at an optimal height, without putting extra effort to reach the desired work area.
APEL MCWPs are designed to enhance productivity by reducing stress on the body, causing less pain and fatigue due to a reduced load on muscles and joints.
