Wrist positions and movements were measured and a physical examination was conducted in 12 female operators in an industrial quality-control work. The handled products are of very low weight, thus, the work can be considered as non-forceful. The work was highly repetitive; 0.54Hz for the right wrist/hand and 0.41Hz for the left. The angular velocities were also high; for the right wrist/hand median value was 30 degrees /s and peak value 108 degrees /s, for the left wrist/hand 24 degrees /s and 88 degrees /s, respectively. The frequency of musculoskeletal disorders was high, especially for the right wrist/hand. Although the work was non-forceful and there were minor extreme positions in the wrists, the results are consistent with reported exposure-response relations in other high-risk jobs. Thus, the repetitiveness and the high velocities are the likely causes for the high prevalence of disorders in the wrists/hands among the operators.
