Musculoskeletal disorders

A systematic review of recent literature found some evidence that work environment/workstation adjustments (eg mouse and keyboard design) can improve health outcomes in display screen workers with neck/upper extremity conditions but insufficient evidence for equipment interventions among manufacturing workers. It found insufficient quality evidence to support interventions based on redesigning production systems but some evidence to support the use of physical training.
