IMPACC INC. is a team of industrial physical therapists specializing
in ergonomics and work injury prevention, including back strain,
tendinitis, and carpal tunnel syndrome. IMPACC has helped over
450 workplaces across the USA since 1981, including several Fortune
500 firms, with reductions in lost days ranging from 40% to 90%,
many with improved productivity.
Worker Compensation problems go beyond ergonomic design issues
to include worker behaviors, supervisor attitudes, management
policies and employee relations. We address all these issues as
sources of the problem. We address injuries, claims and Compensation
costs as three separate issues. The IMPACC program seeks to enlighten
managers and supervisors about how certain policies and attitudes
affect their Worker Compensation problem, seeking to correct counter-productive
workplace politics. The program then seeks to motivate workers
to commit to self-care and fatigue avoidance behaviors, thus maintaining
a healthy body with which to earn a living. This is a Total Quality
IMPACC INC. strategies are based on the advanced ergonomics
research and experience of Britain, Scandinavia and Australia.
We first provide an ERGONOMIC WORK RISK ANALYSIS to identify the
risk factors for ergonomics injury so that we may recommend corrective
actions. This becomes the company's first draft of an ERGONOMICS
PLAN. Next, Manager/ Supervisor Training builds a management team
of committed experts on controlling injuries, claims and costs.
Employee WorkSmart Training follows to instill employee self-protection
skills. This process is concluded with ErgoTeam Training to the
company's select Ergonomics Team to leave the company with a team
for maximum long-range success.
IMPACC INC.'s program is built around OSHA Ergonomics Guidelines
3123, to maximize compliance with OSHA. IMPACC INC. and its founder,
Lauren Andrew Hebert, PT, enjoy widespread national and international
recognition, having published many articles and books and received
international lecture invitations. In 1991, NATION'S BUSINESS
magazine and the U S Chamber of Commerce named IMPACC one of the
Top 200 Blue Chip Enterprise companies in the U.S. for pioneering
work in work injury prevention.

Massabesic Health Resources, PA (MHR) is an independent, Physical
Therapy Clinic located in Southern Maine, Geographically accessible,
quality, Physical Therapy services became available to serve the
local communities in 1987. Patients' time and energies continue
to be re-directed towards accelerating the health gain vs. expended
commuting. In concert with Southern Maine Physicians and Employers,
MHR has a demonstrated track record of providing successful Physical
Therapy interventions on a consistent basis for a host of neuromusculoskeletal
Work Injury Management & Claims Prevention Services are
an integral part of the MRH delivery style in-house and on-site.
MHR's Clinical Director and Physical Therapist Simone L. Palmer,
Magna Cum Laude Graduate of University of New England, 1985, initiated
her career-long professional and mentoring association with Lauren
A. Hebert, PT, OCS, Founder of IMPACC during her undergraduate
Becoming an IMPACC provider of the nation's premier Work Injury
Control & Management Company in the 1990's was an essential
step towards achieving greater clinical effectiveness. By reaching
outside the clinic's walls and educating industry's management
and workers in a variety of commercial settings, the reduction
of preventable injuries, lost time claims and healthcare costs
continues to be an anticipated and predictable outcome.
Massabesic Health Resources' Physical Therapists are highly
trained professionals that examine and individually design effective
treatment regimens to resolve common neuromusculoskeletal problems
and motivate a varied work force. Injured workers learn to effectively
participate in their functional return to a healthier lifestyle.
In-house, the treatment philosophy incorporates an integrated
systems model (of key focus are the cardiovascular-pulmonary,
integumentary, musculoskeletal and neuromuscular body systems).
A Sports Medicine Approach is prerequisite and calls for early
intervention for rapid resolution. Soft tissue treatment strategies
are three-fold: 1) reduce and control inflammation 2) restore
pain free movement patterns ie.functional motion 3) re-train the
injured tissues. MHR PT's apply state of the art examination and
treatment methods utilizing physical agents including electrotherapy,
orthopedic manual therapeutic techniques (skilled hand-on procedures)
and a host of graded therapeutic exercises: aquatic-land based,
case-specific to critically target affected structures. The biomechanical
principles applied dose the loading and unloading of healing tissues
to facilitate functional strengthening and endurance re-building.
