|Abstract: ||This paper presents an investigation of ergonomic issues and coping strategies during gynaecological laparoscopic surgery. Data were collected with questionnaires, postural analysis and interviews. The results suggest that work-related musculoskeletal disorders were present in almost 90% of survey respondents. The workplace factors included equipment dimensions, preference of port positioning and patient size with limited adjustability for all surgeons to perform comfortably and effectively. These findings have implications for service provision (availability of surgeons) and patient safety (human interface design).|
