Abstract:

Weavers work long hours in very small spaces with minimum ventilation and low lighting levels with awkward postures. Hence the present study was taken up to find out the prevalence of Muscle Fatigue Analysis (MFA) among female weavers. An experimental cum observational research design was conducted on different activities performed by the female weavers in Koyyalagudem village of Nalgonda district, Telangana. ECNC Rodgers Muscle Fatigue Analysis online calculator was used to assess the fatigue accumulation in the muscles of different body parts of weavers. Almost all left body region and right body region in warp yarn preparation, pay folding, tieing of yarn, weft yarn preparation, heddle loom and pit loom was found to be at high risk level. So the activity is not accepted and immediate action has to be taken to reduce risk factors.
