A1. Frequency of arm movements score table

Observe the movement of the arm and select the category that is most appropriate.

When movement seems to be in between these definitions it is possible to select intermediate scores. For example, if you arm movement is frequent but with relatively few pauses you may wish to score Amber 4 or Red 5.

A2. Repetition

This refers to movement of the arm and hand, but not the fingers. Observe the movement of the arm and hand and count the number of times that the same or similar pattern of motion is repeated over a set period of time (e.g. 1 minute). Similar motion patterns are likely to repeat each time the task cycle is repeated. There may also be occasions when similar motion patterns are repeated within each task cycle. Assess both the left (L) and right (R) arm.
