||The results obtained revealed that the proportions of workstations do not correspond to the anthropometric data of the female operators studied. The basic working angles depending on the proportions and arrangements of the workstation and the construction of the keyboard, produced forced positions of the hands, shoulders and back. The electromyogram of the flexors of the arm showed a considerable loading and fatigue of the muscular system. The percentage of subjective complaints in the upper extremities was high (especially with respect to the right side) in the region of the shoulders, back and sacrum. Proposals are presented for optimisation of working posture during data input on video terminals.
