Offering free ergonomic education for crafters: Project Linus

Last Friday, two of our therapists had the honor of participating in Project Linus (WNC chapter) annual meeting. Jessica Fowler, DPT describes the organization, " Project Linus is a wonderful organization that provides blankets to children in the hospital, receiving surgery, going through loss, and those needing to feel loved. Several blanket makers give their time and effort to make these blankets to help out a complete stranger in need."

Jessica and Alex returned to the clinic with a great appreciation for  the special people that make up Project Linus. She reflected on the wonderful people she met by stating, "The attendees and hosts were very welcoming and appreciative of us for being there. The volunteer blanket maker's, "Blanketeers" recieved education on proper techniques and tips on how to set a workstation up for sewing. Attendees were so thankful to have this information which will help with their posture as well as reduce discomfort with sewing/quilting/knitting. Alex and I had the pleasure of speaking on ergonomics as well as exercises to perform and even got to demonstrate them to the entire crowd.  This event was a great opportunity for us to be a part of and we were honored to represent Perfect Balance Physical Therapy."
