The study examined OT students’ knowledge in ergonomics in reference to manual patient transfer (MPT) and its generalization to the clinical setting. Twenty-three OT students from an MSOT program participated. Participants were observed while performing an MPT to analyze posturing techniques with a standard patient. Findings suggest students had adequate knowledge of MPT technique but demonstrated poor carry-over of knowledge to application and use of ergonomic principles during an MPT.
