Abstract/OtherAbstract:
PRACTITIONER SUMMARY: Force and frequency are important risk factors for upper extremity disorders. We found that upper extremity muscle activity responds to workload (force × frequency) in a complex way which may be superseded if a grip is present. This electromyographic study provides physiological insights to muscular loading as basis for a variety of workplace disorders.
