What Is Musculoskeletal?

Musculoskeletal disorders (MSD) are injuries or disorders of the muscles, tendons, nerves, joints, spinal discs and cartilage. Well, work related musculoskeletal disorders (WMSD) are conditions where:

  • The performance of work and the work environment contribute to the condition significantly; and/or
  • The condition is created worse or persists longer due to work conditions.

MSDs don’t include disorders that are caused by trips, falls, slips, or similar incidents. Here are the examples of MSDs:

  • Sprains, strains, and tears
  • Back pain
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Hernia

What Is Shadow Health?

Founded in 2011 in Gainesville, Florida, Shadow Health is an educational software developer of learning environments called ‘Digital Clinical Experiences’ (DCEs). This software actually claims to offer web-based clinical learning environments for students and faculty in the fields of healthcare and nursing.

Each DCE provides educators with administration, documentation and tracking functions as a learning management system to calculate student clinical competence and clinical reasoning. The students can also go through the ‘digital clinical experience’.

With the use of Shadow Health DCE, the students can engage with ‘Digital Standardized Patients’ to attend virtual simulations of patient exams and practice documentation. Shadow Health claims to input ‘cross-functional teams using agile management’ in its work environment.

After completion of each virtual patient examination, you may be prompted to reflect on their experiences and compare them against an expert’s notes. For more information, Shadow Health is a graduate of The Innovation Hub that is known as a local incubator hub opened in 2011.
