Título: Comparison of measurement methods for quantifying hand force / Elin Koppelaar and Richard WellsAutor: Koppelaar, Elin
Notas: Hand force is a known risk factor for upper extremity disorders. The objective of the present study was to determine the characteristics of, and the relationships between exposure assessment methods to quantify hand force. Five methods, used in the laboratory or the field, were used to quantify hand force at three force magnitudes: two direct (or technical) measurement methods, force transducers and electromyography; an observational method; and two self-report approaches, force matching and a visual analogue scaleRegistros relacionados: En: Ergonomics. - London and Washington. - Vol. 48, nº 8, 22 June 2005 ; p. 983-1007Materia / lugar / evento: Ergonomía Fuerza física Trabajo manual Métodos cuantitativos de medida Estudios comparativos Autores secundarios: Wells, Richard
