Gerard Dybel PT, ScD, GCS, is an associate professor in the Department of Physical Therapy at the University of Massachusetts Lowell. His research interests include ergonomics, injury prevention in health care workers and the implementation of no-lift technology by physical therapists practicing in rehabilitation departments. He recently conducted a pilot study on safe patient handling (SPH) to evaluate the effect of training in the use of no-lift assistive device technology on the attitudes and clinical practice techniques of practicing physical and occupational therapists and on physical therapy students. One of the products incorporated in this study was the Rifton TRAM. This research was presented as a poster at the 2014 Massachusetts Physical Therapy Association’s annual meeting.
