Assessment of physical (mechanical) exposures (activities and postures) by technical systems has been shown to be more precise than self-reported assessment. The measurement possibilities, price, availability, robustness and user-friendliness of technical systems have been improved extensively during recent years. This make it possible to do advanced measurements, not only by researchers but also practitioners.
