Abstract
In this paper, we discussed the possibility and proposal to adapt heart rate based healthcare sensor at workplace to estimate working load for elderly worker by an holistic literature study. The occurrence of work related musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) increase with age. Many older workers will have spent more time working in situations that are prone to lead to MSDs. There are predictive equations developed to estimate metabolic work rate (MWR) as a function of heart rate and physical charact...
