Repetitive strain injuries diagnostic of agricultural workers


Amran, Faizal Amri (1999) Repetitive strain injuries diagnostic of agricultural workers. In: National Conference on Engineering Smart Farming for the Next Millenium, 14-16 Mar. 1999, UPM, Serdang, Selangor. (pp. 1-8).

Abstract / Synopsis

Repetitive Strain Injuries (RSI) present an increasingly common challenge to clinicians. They consist of a variety of musculoskeletal disorders, as well as some common periphe-ral-nerve entrapment and vascular syndromes. These injuries result from repetitive and forceful motion, awkward postures, and other work-related condition and ergonomic hazards. Epidemiological data on the quantitative association between RSI and excessive risk of agricultural workers are incomplete. The symptomatic diagnosis of RSI is still mainly based on anamnestic information. Separate models for risk evaluation of vascular and neurological disorder related to work with different tools and process will have to be established.
