Authors are deeply concerned with ergonomics applied to rehabilitation. They used an isokinetic equipment specific for the upper limbs. Two activities were chosen: the employment of lever and pliers. Sixteen healthy subjects have been evaluated during the performance of the above activities, testing maximum torque and total work. Authors propose normative data to be applied to patients trained before return-to-work.
