Título Musculoskeletal disorders among sewing machine operators in shoemaking
Información bibliográfica July 1993, Vol.36, No.7, p.793-800. 22 ref.
Resumen Results of a questionnaire survey among workers in a Mexican shoe factory indicated that low back pain was the most frequent disorder (18.2%) for operators of both flat- and column-type sewing machines. The shoulder was the site of complaint for 14% of the subjects, being three times more frequent among column-machine operators. The back as a whole was mentioned by 14%, and neck pain by 4.9%; in both cases only flat-machine operators were affected. The body regions affected were those expected from the analysis of video recordings and were consistent with those reported for occupations involving similar postures and movements.
