    I am a graduate student currently doing a study on aging ergonomics, particularly on the occurrence of particular musculoskeletal disorders among the elderly in a particular Southeast Asian country.

    I am having some trouble narrowing down my research topic at the moment, but I am looking for an area under this topic that has not been tackled in depth before. Would anyone happen to have any suggestions and links to some helpful references / resources?

    Thank you!




    The workability tool form Finland developed by Juhani illmarinen. It is currently being adapted for Australia by people at Swinburne University due to differing populations etc. The tool considers the physical and psychosocial "fit" of the workplace for an ageing population.


    Cheers Glen

    I have studied ergonomics and aging more than 30 years. I recommend to consider mental loads.
