Musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) are one of the most common occupational diseases. It can cause pain and dysfunction of routine functioning of back/neck/limbs. MSDs can amount to loss of working period, increased labor costs, and human injuries. Unhealthy postures while working are the cause of MSDs among dentists. Ergonomics is an applied science concerned with improving productivity and safety and not just preventing work-related MSDs. Ergonomics ensure optimal working conditions along with physical and psychological comfort throughout the execution of the clinical acts.
