Prevent Musculoskeletal Disorders in Agriculture

Soter Analytics can help uncover the risks that lead to injury in agricultural populations and prevent them using wearable technologies, data and personalized training

Manual Operations & MSDs

Among the non-fatal occupational injuries suffered by farm workers, MSDs are the most widespread. High demanding physical work in the agricultural industry continues to lead to musculoskeletal problems. The main risk factors regarding the reported MSDs in agriculture are associated with tasks that require repetitive manual operations like lifting and moving of heavy loads, prolonged trunk flexion, intensive hand work, and the large amount of time working in awkward postures of wrist and trunk.

In fact, repetitive and sustained stooping is the primary risk factor for low back pain. Moreover, the highest number of musculoskeletal complaints are among individuals who work in relatively bad ergonomic conditions. Soter solutions help workers to maintain safe movement practices, increase a workers ergonomic awareness and provide in-situ training, driving down the risk of injury.
