Abstract This project's overall aim was to develop and refine an observational instrument, the Keyboard Personal Computer Style instrument (K-PeCS), which had the ability to document postures and behaviors identified as risk factors for MSD-UE. For this project we developed the K-PeCS in two phases. The specific aim of Phase I was to develop the K-PeCS and refine the psychometrics of the instrument including content and concurrent criterion validity, and inter-rater and intra-rater reliability. The specific aim of Phase II was to develop a model using K-PeCS items that could discriminate between those with and without MSD-UE.
