Part 7: Conclusion

These are common factors that can attribute to MSIs. There can be musculoskeletal injuries to any limb, including the lower back, wrists, knees, or shoulders. Some risk factors are only specific for certain injuries, such as poor fitting gloves corresponding specifically to hand injuries. The more risk factors that are present, the greater the risk of injury.

If pain or discomfort is present, do not hesitate to see a doctor. Ergo-Motion Consulting has devised a convenient ergonomic assessment tool to determine if an ergonomic assessment is beneficial for individuals and companies alike. Feel free to visit ergotool.ergo-motion.com to take the assessment.
