N2 - Work-related musculoskeletal disorders (WRMDs) have been shown to be caused by (amongst other things) exposure to work tasks which involve constrained pathomechanical body postures and physical load. Current research suggests that the added weight of a wearable computer and the positions which interacting with it requires, induces acute musculoskeletal stress and may lead to chronic musculoskeletal disorders.
