||Physical activity, cardiorespiratory fitness, and body mass index in relationship to work productivity and sickness absence in computer workers with preexisting neck and upper limb symptoms
||June 2007, Vol.49, No.6, p.633-640. 42 ref.
||The purpose of this study was to investigate associations among three risk factors (physical activity, cardiorespiratory fitness and body mass index), work productivity and sickness absence in computer workers. All participants had experienced neck and upper limb symptoms in the preceding six months, the preceding two weeks, or both. Productivity and sickness absence were assessed by means of questionnaires. It was found that physical activity and cardiorespiratory fitness were not associated with work productivity or sickness absence. Obese male workers showed significantly lower productivity than other workers. Other findings are discussed.
