Industrial wrist motions and incidence of hand/wrist cumulative trauma disorders.
One of the major research voids in the study of occupational hand/wrist cumulative trauma disorders (CTDs) is the lack of quantification of the relationship between the known kinematic risk factors, such as wrist angle and repetition, and CTD risk.
A previously published article in this journal (Marras and Schoenmarklin 1993) reported the descriptive results from a quantitative surveillance study performed in industry in which worker's wrist motions were monitored on the factory floor.
The wrist motion components that were monitored on each subject were position, velocity, and acceleration measures in each plane of movement.
(radial/ulnar, flexion/extension, and pronation/supination).
