October 8, 2018 -- Canon Medical Systems USA has launched a program designed to reduce the causes of pain and injury for sonographers at work so they can scan more comfortably.

The Healthy Sonographer Program aims to educate sonographers about best practices to prevent awkward postures -- including reaching and twisting -- that can result in injuries to the shoulders, neck, and wrists and can be a detriment to patient engagement.

Canon consulted with Sound Ergonomics to create the new program, which includes free educational events and HealthySonographer.com, a website where sonographers can watch videos, read articles, and learn stretches and exercises ideal for reducing sonographer injury.

The program was unveiled at the Society of Diagnostic Medical Sonography (SDMS) annual meeting in Orlando, FL, on October 5.
