    I’ve been asked to comment on threshold values/recommendations for stair climbing?  Anyone comment on a particlar risk assessment form to address stair climbing or recommendations on limit values?  Thanks in advance

    Closest I’ve come to finding an answer is to calculate "energy expenditure"  anyone else want to comment?

    I agree.  Determine METS and correlate with Physical Demand Category.

    yeah, I think that is the way to go and then utilise some "mediation skills" to address the subjective vs objective findings of the frequency and overall demand required of the "stairclimbing" mobility demand.  Anyone else had some fun with this one, please feel free to share your experiences….I will if I am granted the opportunity with this referral source :)
