Mud treatment guides
The Centre (Viive Pille ja Varje-Riin Tuulik) has developed a guide for mud treatment, heat therapy and hydrotherapy with the aim to aid the prevention of physical overload diseases and to provide an overview of the possibilities for treating overuse syndromes.
The guide is aimed at the people who work with the prevention, treatment and rehabilitation of physical overload diseases. The guide describes work-related overuse syndromes, but can also be used in the prevention of overuse syndromes unrelated to work.
The guide in not concerned with drug, instrument or surgical treatment, or measures for preventing overload diseases in the work environment.
Rehabilitation product design
A prototype of a bedside cabinet was developed by the Centre’s designers and the Centre’s partner OÜ Equa. The model in development is meant for bed-ridden patients in hospitals and hospices. The cabinet’s construction differs from those currently in use. The aim is to achieve an easy-to-use and reliable product with a simple construction.
