Why use the MSDs Analysis (KIMEA) application?


Musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) can affect joints, muscles and tendons. Certain working conditions can favour the appearance of MSDs, and they represent an important financial cost for companies.

In Europe, in 2015, the European Agency for Safety and Health at Work issued a report about Work-Related MSDs. It showed that backache was the leading MSD with around 44% of the cases followed by muscular pain in the shoulders, neck and upper limbs at 42% and finally muscular pains in lower limbs at 29%. This data was recorded for 12 months.
These results were similar in Great Britain in 2021, where the same type of recorded MSDs and percentages were observed among workers.
In both reports, other similarities were found. The likelihood of work-related MSDs increases with age.

Many sectors are concerned: transport and logistics, commerce, food processing, construction and public works, cleaning, metalworking, and personal assistance and care, particularly in residential establishments for dependent elderly people.


To prevent and reduce MSDs, BlueKanGo has partnered with Moovency, a well-known french company in this field, and offers MSDs analysis with the KIMEA Cloud solution, accessible from the BlueKanGo platform. A data pooling that helps you to control MSD risks while implementing prevention actions.
