A description of the Rapid Upper Limb Assessment was originally published in:
McAtamney, L. and Corlett, E.N. (1993) RULA: A survey method for the investigation of work-related upper limb disorders. Applied Ergonomics, 24 (2), 91-99.
This tool was subsequently adapted for computer users by Rani Lueder with the kind assistance of Drs. Lynn McAtamney and Corlett. Unlike the original, this adaptation has not been validated.
Information about this version was presented in the following article:
Lueder, R (1996) A Proposed RULA for Computer Users. Proceedings of the Ergonomics Summer Workshop, UC Berkeley Center for Occupational and Environmental Health Continuing Education Program, San Francisco, August 8-9, 1996.
