    Summary

    Musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) are potentially one of the biggest causes of injury and ill health amongst sonographers. Many factors can contribute towards the development of MSDs in sonographers such as poor job design and poor posture.

    These standards primarily address poor equipment design which in a SoR study of sonographers was believed by 49% of respondents to be a contributory factor towards the development of such injuries. The standards can be used by equipment manufacturers, employers, safety representatives, educators and employees as a means of reducing the risk of injury to sonographers.
