The repetitive tasks of various forms of manual work can lead to cumulative trauma disorders, increasing staff burn-out rates and the number of sick-days taken by employees. This text combines basic biomechanics with practical bioengineering issues and provides more than the general introductions to cumulative trauma disorders (CTDs) and medical management-related books currently on the market. Biomechanics of the Upper Limbs: Mechanics, Modelling and Muskoskeletal Injuries focuses on the musculoskeletal components and the measurement and prediction of injury potential. Graduate students and professionals should find it provides an excellent basic grounding to the subject.
