L’objectif de cette étude était d’évaluer la prévalence des troubles musculo-squelettiques (TMS) et les facteurs associés chez les employés de bureau travaillant sur un lieu de travail basé sur l’activité.

OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the prevalence of musculoskeletal disorders (MSD) and associated factors among office workers working in the activity-based workplace (ABW). METHODS: 42 office workers with ABW and 68 office workers as control participated. Nordic Musculoskeletal Questionnaire, Baecke Physical Activity Questionnaire, Copenhagen Psychosocial Questionnaire III, and Fear Avoidance Beliefs Questionnaire were used and Pain pressure threshold (PPT) was measured. RESULTS: There were no significant differences in the prevalence of MSDs in most body areas between the ABW and control group. ABW group experienced significantly (p < 0.05) more right wrist, hand, and finger pain in the past 6 months when compared with the control group. ABW group demonstrated significantly (p < 0.05) more work-related physical activity and daily time spent standing. There were no significant differences in other pain-related factors measured. CONCLUSIONS: Office workers with ABW had a similar prevalence of MSDs to office workers with a designated workplace and no differences in associated factors. Consultez la page de l’article
