||Strain, as measured by heart rate and energy consumption, was compared with degenerative changes of the skeletal and locomotor systems. There is no protection against injuries offered by existing limitations on permissible load. Single loads and static work components seem to cause or promote injuries. For measuring local muscle strain the electromyogram is suitable. Biomechanics and orthopaedists must try to identify the forces affecting the skeletal system and locomotor apparatus, and conduct epidemiologic investigations to state reliable limits.
