Main Article Content
Musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) have been identified as a predisposing factor for lesser productivity and are considered to be a major occupational health problem contributing significantly to absenteeism, disability and loss of productivity. Computer users may develop musculoskeletal disorders due to the forces applied, muscle use, posture and wrist velocity and acceleration exposures during computer use. Work-related musculoskeletal disorders (WMSDs) in computer users cause substantial worker discomfort, disability and loss of productivity. The aim of this study is to review systematically the relevant literature on applicable posture analysis methods to computer workers. A bibliographic survey based on PRISMA statement methodology was performed. A review on different approaches for computer workers posture was accomplished and noted that the simultaneous utilization of the different methods allows achieving better posture analysis, compared to situations when each one of them was used individually.
