Inert Objects

No inert object can hurt anyone, yet people get hurt as they interact with inert objects. So is it the object that hurts the person or the person that ‘hurt themself’ as they interacted?

Positive Deviance* can be used to solve the problem. Those people that never suffer strain and sprain become the model. Their physical function, behaviour and attitudes, as they interact to perform their job description, deviates from that of the person who suffers the strain and sprain, in a positive way, such that they do not suffer the problem.

Strain and sprain in its early stage is commonly misinterpreted as ‘stiffness’. The positive deviants recognise strain and sprain for what it is and make adjustments at a level of ‘subconscious competence’ such that they do not hurt themselves. This can be measured as a Movement Intelligence Quotient. (MIQ) These people have a high MIQ. Everyone can raise their MIQ.

These positive behaviours have been identified. Using accelerated motor learning and adult education systems, everyone has the potential to ‘copy’ the positive deviants and eliminate the strain and sprain.  http://www.positivedeviance.org
