Abstract
One of the goals of the present investigation is to model relationships between indices ofjob exposure (e.g. quantitative rating of repetitiveness) and indices of medical outcomes (e.g. symptoms, physical examination findings, quantitative sensory test results, electrodiagnostic test results, and prevalence of specific CTDs) with the goal of developing quantitative, exposure-response relationships. Although data collection is not yet completed, in the present report we present some of our preliminary findings concerning carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS), tendinitis, and upper extremity symptoms in general in relation to hand repetition.
