  1. 1. Bias and Precision in Biomechanical Exposure Assessment : Making the Most of our Methods

    Author : Jennie A. Jackson; Svend Erik Mathiassen; Eva Vingård; Mikael Forsman; Peter Johnson; Jennie A Jackson; Högskolan i Gävle; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; measurement strategy; accuracy; inclinometry; electromyography; EMG; upper arm; shoulder; low back; lumbar; thoracic; Health-Promoting Work; Hälsofrämjande arbete;

    Abstract : Background: Insufficient exposure assessment is a suggested contributing factor to the current lack of clearly characterised relationships between occupational biomechanical risk factors and musculoskeletal disorders. Minimal attention has been paid to the potential bias of measurement tools from expected true values (i.e. READ MORE

  2. 2. Methods for measuring physical workload with relevance for musculoskeletal disorders of neck and upper limb

    Author : Gert-Åke Hansson; Avdelningen för arbets- och miljömedicin; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; shoulder; exposure-response relation; exposure; repetitiveness; movements; postures; questionnaire; EMG; electromyography; accelerometer; Goniometer; inclinometer; arm; wrist; hand.; Occupational health; industrial medicine; Yrkesmedicin; arbetsmiljömedicin;

    Abstract : Work-related musculoskeletal disorders of the neck and upper limb are a major problem. Women in repetitive manual work is one large affected group. Preventive actions are hampered by the lack of knowledge regarding quantitative exposure-response relations for physical workload. READ MORE

  4. 4. A Signal Processing Approach to Practical Neurophysiology : A Search for Improved Methods in Clinical Routine and Research

    Author : Björn Hammarberg; Dick Stegeman; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Systemteknik; matched filter; asynchronous detection; Kalman filter; initialization; MHT; Wiener deconvolution; line source model; electromyography; needle EMG; motor unit potential; MUAP; mean fiber concentration; jitter; microneurography; C-fiber; spike sorting; Systemteknik; Systems engineering; Systemteknik; Signal Processing; signalbehandling;

    Abstract : Signal processing within the neurophysiological field is challenging and requires short processing time and reliable results. In this thesis, three main problems are considered.First, a modified line source model for simulation of muscle action potentials (APs) is presented. READ MORE

  5. 5. Wrist and thumb joint postures and motions: Measurements using electrogoniometry and EMG

    Author : Per Jonsson; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Wrist joint; Finger joint; Electromyography; Accuracy; Electrogoniometry; Input device; Information and communication technology; Mobile phone; Muscle activity; Posture; Thumb; Wrist;

    Abstract : Correct measurements of the joints’ extreme postures, velocity and repetitiveness are important for studies of the origin of musculoskeletal disorders. Posture measurements of wrist and thumb joints may also provide insights into input device designs that may reduce effort and/or facilitate productivity. READ MORE
