- Blue collar (factory related) – Factory and construction workers who work in manufacturing and production environments where they have to perform repetitive tasks in a difficult posture or with force can sometimes develop aches and pains in their arms, wrists, shoulders fingers and/or thumbs.
- White collar (office related) – Office and company workers who carry out data inputting, typing, computing, programming and secretarial duties and other similar tasks can sustain aches and pains to the upper limbs.
