New and Easy to Use Ergonomic Risk Assessment Tools for the Back, Distal Upper Extremity, and Shoulder -AND- Applying for BCPE Certification

Recent evidence has demonstrated that musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) may be the result of a fatigue failure process, where repetitions at higher forces are much more damaging to tissues than repetitions at lower stresses. Fortunately, fatigue failure theory provides methods that are very useful in terms of estimating this risk of MSDs, and can even easily […]
