Work related upper limb disorders (WRULDs) have existed since pre-historical times. Exposure of the hand to prolonged repetitive activities over long periods of time could contribute to WRULDs if precautionary measures are not observed . To elucidate some of the underlying mechanisms associated with the development of (WRULDs), biomechanical studies designed to assess office related and industrial related occupations are essential. This study reports the physiological changes that occur to the hand during the performance of repetitive activities associated with office and industrial work.
