Abstract

Combined three-dimensional video recording and force measurements on the hands during a two-handed asymmetric work tasks allow calculation of the mechanical load on the elbow and shoulder. Thus it is possible to evaluate physiologically, new equipment designed to prevent work-related musculoskeletal disorders. Before introducing such equipment in large scale interventions it may be evaluated if the changes in force requirements are sufficient to predict prevention of musculoskeletal disorders.
