Students who complete this course will be able to dmonstrate and understanding of:
Ask us about the vertebral simulator that we use to demonstrate spine and disc movements. These simulators have been sourced from overseas and are used so that Easy HR course participants are able to visually understand and view the physiology of the spine, as well as common manual handling injuries. The simulators allow course participants to feel and touch a simulation of the vertebra and discs. This facilitates more effective learning and recall.
