Remedy Interactive Announces Injury Prevention Council to Promote Best Practices in Injury Prevention Science

SAUSALITO, CA--(Marketwire - April 28, 2009) - Remedy Interactive Inc. today announced its newly formed Injury Prevention Council. The Council is comprised of leading health practitioners and injury prevention scientists who have deep experience successfully applying injury prevention science in the workplace. The primary purpose of the Injury Prevention Council is to ensure that Remedy Interactive's customers receive the highest value from its products and services. The intent is to do so through the practical application of the most advanced, generally accepted injury prevention science. In addition, the Injury Prevention Council will inform the industry of its workplace injury prevention insights, hypotheses and best practices.

"We've always known that investing in workplace injury prevention is the right thing to do. But applying injury prevention and ergonomic science in the workplace on a large scale, and in a way that delivers measurable return to the employer, is often difficult," said Kim Lopez, CEO of Remedy Interactive. "In addition to the work we're doing with our customers, who are gathering and using information and data on a large scale, we've created the Injury Prevention Council to help us create a stronger bridge between advanced injury prevention science and the application of that science in the real world."

The Injury Prevention Council will be led by Remedy Interactive's Injury Prevention Science Coordinator Ron Goodman. Its other members include:
