Variance in direct exposure measures of typing force and wrist kinematics across hours and days among office computer workers
Practitioner Summary: The dose response relationship between exposure to computer related biomechanical risk factors and musculoskeletal disorders is poorly understood due to the difficulty and cost of direct measures. This study demonstrates a single hour of direct continuous measures is sufficient to identify differences in wrist kinematics and typing force between individuals.
