Carpal tunnel syndrome and manual work

The OCTOPUS cohort, results of a ten-year longitudinal study
This large longitudinal cohort study provides a prospective validation of the ACGIH TLV® method for the assessment of biomechanical exposures at work. It confirmed that “forceful hand exertions” more than “any exertion” significantly increase the risk of CTS. This study suggests that the current limits (AL and TLV) might not be sufficiently protective for some workers.
