Resumo

Oral health care providers are highly susceptible to musculoskeletal disorders. Repetitive movements, awkward or constrained postures, and static muscular load are common risk factors for this occupational health problem development. The purpose of this preliminary study is to provide posture information, while a dentist performs a simple occlusal cavity preparation in the first upper right and left molars and first lower right and left molars. Direct measurements of both position and angular velocity were performed, through motion sensors XsensR MVN BIOMECH, enabling the assessment of physical workload during dental work. Excessive head flexion and arm elevation were found during the four dental procedures. The current study results for head and arm positions are in accordance to the results got in previous studies by using inclinometers.
