An actor of prevention for more than 10 years

Composed of physiotherapists and researchers in biomechanics, the CEVRES team have developed a strong and original expertise that is in the service of the prevention of MSDs.

In collaboration with university laboratories, our activity consists to innovate and spread effective means of prevention adapted to the constraints and objectives of the company. Concretely, CEVRES proposes to accompany you in the implementation of ergonomic approaches to improve working conditions and product conception. We offer trainings in the active prevention of MSDs and can hold adapted workshops on your health/security days.

Our actions are based on a scientific approach that guarantees efficiency and optimal credibility, while remaining simple to transfer and apply to various professional environments.


A team of physical therapists and researchers.

Each speaker has a solid training experience in professional and academic circles.

Simple and effective solutions to complex problems.

Simplification of the messages is essential to ensure their comprehension and their diffusion in a pleasant and ludic atmosphere.

Scientific tools at the service of ergonomics.

The use of certain scientific techniques makes it possible to direct - in an informed way - the conception/correction of workstations and products of mass consumption.

Practical training for active MSD prevention.

The ergo- motricity, or the involvement of everyone in its own prevention, is based on simple and effective techniques, complementary to ergonomics.


sEMG: A decision-making and pedagogy tool

CEVRES’s special feature for the ergonomic analysis of work situations rests on using synchronized video and surface electromyography (sEMG).

This non-invasive technique for recording muscular activity - simple and quick to implement - is the only solution to measure all the muscular-tendinous stresses, even in the absence of movement (static stresses, maintenance of posture).

The main areas of intervention are:

Decision support for the development (conception) or the reorganization (correction) of workstations.

Assistance in the ergonomic design of large consumer products (mouse, keyboard, bottles, pens, steering wheels...).

Accompanying the change by illustrating in a simple and pedagogical way the advantages of a tool, a gesture, or a workstation layout.

Active prevention training

Simple, discreet, effective and targeted exercises

Although essential, the ergonomic approach does not remove all the stresses associated with certain work situations. It is therefore necessary to train the staff in a complementary approach to active prevention.

The effectiveness of such training is based on unavoidable pillars: the demonstrated effectiveness of the recommendations, the simple explanation of the mechanisms of action, the concrete practice, the simplicity of implementation (1 to 2 minutes per day) which goes through individualized recommendations.



CEVRES Santé: Training organization (declaration of activity registered under the number 82 73 01427 73 with the prefect of the Rhône-Alpes region).

The preparation

The ergonomic analysis prior to training allows to customize the supports used.

The recommendations issued correspond precisely to the demands of the trainees who feel particularly concerned.

I am interested

Training course
Group of 12 people max

Modules adapted to the different types of professions:

production, handling, tertiary, mixed (For heterogeneous groups).

Complete package:

½ day in group and ½ day of individual assessment (15 min / each) to individualize the recommendations.

We adapt to your organizational needs and constraints for the organization of our trainings.

I am interested


CEVRES supports you so that the approach initiated during the training courses becomes sustainable and fits into the culture of the company.

Different services have been conceived in this objective such as:

-Provision of communication kits

-The formation of medical ambassadors for the follow-up,

-The formation of relays for the perpetuation of a dynamic playful form,

-The installation of spaces dedicated to the practice of the exercises recommended in the training course.

Some of our references


located in the heart of Savoy Technolac, CEVRES Santé benefits from a particularly favorable context for innovation thanks to the proximity with the laboratories of the University Savoy-Mont Blanc.

Specialized in the management of human mobility issues, CEVRES Santé’s activity is expressed through two areas of expertise:


Research and Development of medical devices

with a specialization recognized by the scientific and medical communities in the evaluation and rehabilitation of the unstable ankle, the most common traumatic pathology with more than 6,500 cases per day in France.

For athletes or non-athletes, ankle sprains are a common injury and recurrences are also an important matter to discuss. How can these accidents be explained? And especially how to avoid them? How to define an external ankle sprain (95% of cases)?

It is a ligament lesion located on the ankle, defined by three stages: A stretched ligament (stage 1), a broken ligament (stage 2), all broken ligaments (stage 3, so-called severe sprain).

The sprain mechanisms can occur in the following three situations:

1- Reception of a simple jump.

2- Consecutively to a lateral strafe (tennis player for example)

3- Impact of the heel on an unexpected ground area.


Indeed, the ligaments are not powerful enough to protect, by themselves, the articulation. They need to be helped by the muscles and tendons (Peroneal muscles) that oppose the sprain movement.

Unfortunately, when the ankle is twisted, the nervous system needs three times more time to trigger the muscle-protective reflex than the time necessary to injure the ligament.

It is therefore necessary to train the brain to contract this specific musculature before the destabilization of the ankle.

First, our brain must know the position of our ankle permanently thanks to the sensors in the joint. This function is called proprioception.

Recent international scientific studies have shown that wobbleboards, foams or pneumatic studs do not adequately solicit ankle proprioception, but are rather effective in developing proprioception of the hip and back.

Exercises that improve the ankle’s proprioception should be performed on tools that position the front of the foot and toes on a stable surface and which, at the same time, allow the heel to move in a three-dimensional movement.

Secondly, under the influence of brain steering, the peroneal muscles will have to develop sufficient force to oppose the sprain movement. This function is called eccentric muscular strength.

Franco-Swiss scientific research, carried out in 2016, showed that the most effective way to strengthen this eccentric muscular force must be realized, under the control of a physiotherapist, in a standing position on one foot by slowing the sprain movement as slowly as possible.

Exercises that improve the ankle's protective force are trained by simulating spraining while retaining the weight of the body applied to the foot.
