Dave Coates

Over the past 29 years as an Industrial Physical Therapist and Kinesiologist, David Coates pioneered on-site clinical practices within large workplaces to develop industry-specific ergonomics, musculoskeletal injury prevention, and disability management programs to reduce human and financial costs. Efforts included participatory ergonomics initiatives, movement safety training, industrial athlete programming, early intervention/job-attached rehabilitation, and return to work programming.

David has culminated his years of experience in the MoveSafe Program. MoveSafe is an education and training program that teaches people WHY we need to train our bodies with ergonomic design and specific warm-up routines to create muscle memory for optimal body positioning and movement at work, at home, and at play. Your body is your most valuable tool, use it well for a better quality of life.
