Kurzbeschreibung (Abstract)

Musculoskeletal disorders (MSD) are a major reason for the absence due to illness of workers in the manufacturing industry. There is a need to evaluate the capabilities of workers as well as to systemize the data. With this data, on the one hand, a suitable workplace for workers with MSD’s can be developed, on the other hand, this data can be used by workplace designers to create preventive, capability-appropriate workplaces. The requirements for functional capacity evaluation in the context of the manufacturing industry are discussed as well as the benefit of such a procedure. Furthermore, the important capabilities which are relevant for assembly work and therefore need to be assessed are presented and described in detail. Derived from the description of the capabilities and guidelines for the occupational physicians, the capabilities specific to musculoskeletal complains and related functional limitations need to be assessed.
