Report: Emerging Technologies for the Prevention of Musculoskeletal Disorders (MSD)


Emerging Technologies for the Prevention of Musculoskeletal Disorders


Investing in technology to prevent Musculoskeletal Disorders (MSDs) is the path to a safer workplace, enhancing worker wellbeing and your organization’s success. However, in an ever-evolving technology landscape, navigating the terrain can be challenging. That’s where we come in.

Safetytech Accelerator  has partnered with the USA’s  National Safety Council’s MSD Solutions Lab to release an innovative report that focuses on emerging technologies aimed at preventing musculoskeletal disorders (MSD).

This partnership, initiated in 2021, arose from the National Safety Council (NSC)’s collaboration with Amazon to address MSD, which is the most common workplace injury. Together, they established the MSD Solutions Lab, a pioneering strategic initiative dedicated to identifying, researching, evaluating, and promoting innovative solutions designed to prevent and mitigate MSD injuries.

The report

The report is the result of interviews with executives from diverse sectors such as agriculture, logistics, and manufacturing. It combines their invaluable insights with extensive research into market-available solutions that span various domains. Some of the key highlights featured in the report include:

  • Advanced Visual Analytics: Discover how advanced visual analytics are revolutionizing the analysis of ergonomic risks across different worksites and enterprises.
  • Wearable Sensors: Learn how wearable sensors, when combined with advanced analytics, offer a cost-effective way to provide real-time feedback in the field.
  • Exoskeletons: Uncover the potential and applicability of exoskeletons to reduce or eliminate the risk of injury in various workplace environments.

The report also delves into the benefits of emerging safety technologies such as computer vision, autonomous  or semi-autonomous materials handling equipment, and extended reality.
