  1. Work related upper limb disorder : the relationship between pain, cumulative load, disability, and psychological factors.

    Article - En anglais

    Repetitive strain injury, or work related upper limb disorder, provides an interesting paradigm for the study of the relative contribution of physical and psychological factors to the resulting pain and disability.

    Sixty three subjects were studied, comprising the workforce of a subsection of a large local industrial company, in whom pain in the arm related to work was known to be common.

    Ergonomic data were obtained by estimating the cumulative daily load on the wrist joint for each of four identified tasks.

    Data on the occurrence of pain, treatment sought, and disability were obtained by a structured self administered questionnaire.
