The aim of the research is to review current literature on mechanical handling aids and automated systems that reduce musculoskeletal injury risks for the upper limbs as well as commercially available products. The objectives of this research were to: undertake a literature review to identify if there is any guidance or information currently available in the UK and elsewhere about reducing upper limb injury risk by mechanisation and automation; identify what mechanisation and automation products are commercially available to reduce the risks of musculoskeletal injuries for the upper limbs; and identify the benefits and limitations of using the equipment identified based on real-world examples where possible.
