The RULA was developed by Drs. McAtamney & Corlett of the University of Nottingham’s Institute of Occupational Ergonomics.
This ergonomic technique evaluates people’s exposures to postures, forces and muscle activities that have been shown to contribute to Repetitive Strain Injuries (RSIs). It was developed to detect risk factors that deserve further attention.
Dr. Corlett kindly advised ergonomist Rani Lueder, CPE on a modified RULA for office work, which (unlike the original) is not validated. These changes represent an attempt to increase its appropriateness for evaluating computer work.
