  1. 1. Ergonomic factors and musculoskeletal pain in sonographers

    University dissertation from Lund University: Faculty of Medicine

    Author : Jenny Gremark Simonsen; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2018]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Background: Sonographers have a high risk of musculoskeletal disorders. Sonography involves strenuous postures in the neck and upper limbs, and is visually demanding. Echocardiography is especially challenging, with static postures and monotonous movements. READ MORE

  2. 2. Ambulatory Monitoring and Analysis of Surface Electromyographic Signals in Ergonomic Field Studies - Methods and Applications

  5. 5. Ergonomic Workplace Design Analysis: Development of a practitioner's tool for enhanced productivity

    University dissertation from Lund University: Faculty of Medicine

    Author : Jonas Laring; [2004]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; musculoskeletal load analysis; prospective ergonomics; SAM; ErgoSAM; workplace design; MTM;

    Abstract : There is a lack of pragmatic methods to assess musculoskeletal load risks when planning for production when there is no human operator to observe that performs the tasks. Existing methods are generally either expensive computer manikin software that is complicated to learn and use, simple digital human models for static and episodic analysis best used by trained ergonomists or methods in need of full-scale prototypes for observation.
