“At Bridgestone factory we want to be pioneers in the prevention of shoulder musculoskeletal injuries for our workers”

The Bridgestone tire factory in Basauri, Spain is the first company to incorporate the David Shoulder Solution into their prevention program. This is a big step in using data-based exercise therapy to prevent musculoskeletal pain for workers.

Bridgestone tire factory offers a prevention program that targets shoulder pain

Dr. Javier López Pérez, Director of Medical Services at Bridgestone Basauri factory, has just incorporated two DAVID Shoulder devices into the new space for the prevention of musculoskeletal pathologies that he has created at the Basauri tire plant.

This same week they will begin to carry out the first functional diagnoses within the new preventive program. The program seeks to improve the functional health of the workers of the Biscayan plant.

Dr. Javier López Pérez is part of the Spanish Association of Occupational Medicine Specialists. This opens up a very interesting field of work in which it is possible to analyze the effects of the DAVID technology-based treatment on the muscular and joint structure of the workers.

The Bridgestone company prevention program includes the G460 Shoulder Abduction and G660 Glenohumeral External Rotation devices.

The G460 Diagonal Shoulder Abduction device has unique tilted movement arm axes which guide the movement to activate scapula stabilizing muscles. This is typically a challenging movement, but in the DAVID device the movement is easy and pain-free to perform, even for painful shoulders.
