Postural Analysis and Quantification of Fatigue by Using Rula and Reba Techniques
REBA (Rapid Entire Body Assessment) and RULA (Rapid Upper Body Assessment) are techniques to quantize
the fatigue experienced by the worker while manually lifting loads. These assessments were carried out by a procedural
analysis of body postures involved. The fatigue involved in a particular operation was quantified and accordingly changes in
work method for system improvement were suggested. These techniques helped in process refinement by identifying actions
causing high fatigue.
