Title: Tank carrier’s lateral epicondylitis: A biomechanical rationale for injury and prevention
Author: Barr, LL; Brunt, D; Martin, LR
Abstract: Introduction: Five cases of lateral epicondylitis, in which the carrying and lifting of compressed air tanks led to injury of the common tendon affixing the extensor muscles of the forearm to the lateral epicondyle, have been reported.1 The following experiment was performed to investigate the biomechanical effects of tank lifting on the forearm and to determine whether hand position could be altered to reduce the amount of muscle activity during lifting.
