Abstract

Based on current knowledge of cumulative trauma disorders in the hand and forearm, related to the use of hand tools, an analysis was undertaken of variables to be considered in ergonomics evaluation of hand tools. Measurement methods were developed and an evaluation station was implemented. Measurement methods are physical, physiological or psychophysical. They focus on the tool, and on the effect of typical use of the tool on the operator. The evaluation station serves as a resource in the development, selection, and testing of tools for a given purpose.
