A conceptual model for the pathogenesis of work-related musculoskeletal disorders that contains sets of cascading exposure, dose, capacity, and response variables, such that response at one level can act as dose at the next. Expand
Mobile phone use and stress, sleep disturbances, and symptoms of depression among young adults - a prospective cohort study
High frequency of mobile phone use at baseline was a risk factor for mental health outcomes at 1-year follow-up among the young adults, and the risk for reporting mental health symptoms at follow- up was greatest among those who had perceived accessibility via mobile phones to be stressful. Expand

Occupational and individual factors related to musculoskeletal symptoms in five body regions among Swedish nursing personnel
Various individual factors and physical and psychosocial work factors were related to musculoskeletal symptoms in the different body regions and might have far-reaching implications for the way in which effective health programs for prevention should be designed in the hospital setting. Expand
