By: Y. Deng n, J. Shirley, T. Rose n, L. Geary n, D. Feltner n, K. Chen n, J. Hoyle*, M. Dutt*, D. Kaber*

MeSH headings : Adult; Equipment Design / standards; Ergonomics / standards; Female; Gardening; Guideline Adherence; Heart Rate; Household Articles / standards; Humans; Male; Man-Machine Systems; Middle Aged; Poaceae; Safety; Time and Motion Studies; Workload; Young Adult
TL;DR: A usability and performance assessment of modern riding lawn-mowing tractor designs and features was conducted in a real-world test environment and revealed sensitivity of all response measures to design differences among the five RLE models, except the objective workload measures.

Effects of postural and visual stressors on myofascial trigger point development and motor unit rotation during computer work


By: J. Hoyle n, W. Marras*, J. Sheedy* & D. Hart*

author keywords: Computer work; Electromyography; EMG; Low level static exertions; LLSEs; Myofascial pain; Trapezius; Trigger points; Visual stress; Unequal loading; EMG array; Median frequency cycling
MeSH headings : Adult; Back Pain / etiology; Back Pain / physiopathology; Computer Terminals; Computers; Electromyography; Female; Head Movements; Humans; Male; Muscle, Skeletal / innervation; Muscle, Skeletal / physiopathology; Myofascial Pain Syndromes / diagnosis; Myofascial Pain Syndromes / etiology; Myofascial Pain Syndromes / physiopathology; Neck Pain / etiology; Neck Pain / physiopathology; Occupational Diseases / physiopathology; Pain Measurement; Posture / physiology; Shoulder; Stress, Psychological / physiopathology; Visual Perception / physiology; Young Adult
TL;DR: Examination of myofascial trigger point development and the behavior of multiple parts of the trapezius muscle under postural and mental stress (represented by visual stress) conditions during computer work suggests that MTrPs may be one causal pathway for pain during LLSEs and bothPostural and visual demands may play a role in muscle activation patterns.
