Call for help #2, Ergonomic consultation

Regarding  Minamida and Yano’s neck/shoulder/arm syndrome that we talked about in the last prayer update,  we got the following suggestion that sounded like it might be worth a try:

“I suggest you send out a plea for a consultation with someone who is a specialist in ergonomics.  There must be someone on your list who is, or who knows someone who consults for companies on preventing work related strains and other problems.  These problems certainly seem to fall into that category.  Not as many jobs use the hands, arms, and shoulders as much as signing, but I would think that orchestra conductors, for instance, would have a very similar problem.”

So . . . does anyone know of or know about a specialist in ergonomics?
