Abstract

The Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) and associated risk factors for shocker manufacturing industries in Haryana were carried out. A comparison of CTS and other upper hand extremities amongst traditional and semi-ergonomic shocker manufacturing workers in actual industrial environment has been analysed through questionnaire and physical tests. Fisher’s exact test and ‘t’ test are used for statistical data analysis. From Fisher’s exact test, it is observed that due to wrist/hand problems 80 % of traditional and 20 % of semi-ergonomic shocker manufacturing workers (p < 0.05), have been unable to perform the usual activities. The results reflect that the traditional shocker manufacturing workers are more CTS symptoms occurrence than the semi-ergonomic shocker manufacturing workers.
