Abstract

This paper presents a study on the effect of wrist posture; flexion, extension, ulnar deviation, and radial deviation on maximum acceptable frequencies (MAF) for a drilling task using a psychophysical approach. Twelve females were selected from a college population to serve as subjects and an adjustable workstation was used to simulate a drilling task. The results revealed that flexion, extension, and radial deviation all had a significant effect on MAF but, ulnar deviation did not. The postures have been ranked in order of possible risk of contributing to CTD injury, with neutral having the lowest rank (lowest risk) and flexion having the highest rank (greatest risk).
