Congratulations to the team of Monaro et al., who have just published a second paper on the topic of detection of malingering in whiplash associated disorders, in the International Journal of Legal Medicine. This time, the featured article is a systematic review on the different strategies and techniques used in the field. Read the full
The paper entitle “A model to differentiate WAD patients and people with abnormal pain behaviour based on biomechanical and self-reported tests“, by Merylin Monaro et al., has been published in the International Journal of Legal Medicine, showing that the combination of self-reported pain symptoms and motion parameters obtained from biomechanical tests can be useful to
If you are a health care professional, carer, or a person suffering from neck or low back pain, you can already find a document with such resources in 10 different languages (English, German, Spanish, French, Italian, Danish, Swedish, Dutch, Polish and Portuguese).
A systematic review to identify effective work place intervention strategies for the prevention of low back pain, by Danuta Roman-Liu et al. has been published in the Industrial Health journal, showing that the most effective strategies include technical modifications of the workstand and education based on practical training.

A systematic review made by the Norwegian University of Science and Technology, Karolinska Institue, Roessingh Research and Development, the University of Twente, the University of Southern Denmark and the Nordic Institute of Chiropractic and Clinical Biomechanics, has been published in the European Journal of Pain.
This video explains how Back-UP platform will help first contact clinicians to evaluate the best intervention options for patients with neck or back pain, make shared decisions and monitor their progression.
This poster, prepared by various partners of the Back-UP project, describes the methodology of the systematic review made to investigate the associations between neck or low back pain, and it was presented by Cecilie K. Øveras (NTNU) in the EPIC 2019 conference (Berlin, 20-23 March 2019).
On November 15, 2018 the Back-UP project was presented at the annual general meeting of the Society for Back Pain Research (SBPR) by Stephanie Jansen-Kosterink of RRD. Her presentation focused on the general aim the project, and some results of the first months were showcased.
A study made in the Institute of Biomechanics of Valencia, and published in Musculoskeletal Science and Practice, shows that the perceived pain of whiplash associated disorders is related to neck motion measures, with range of motion and smoothness of neck flexion are consistently related to pain perception.
This documents (Deliverable 1.1) describes how Back-UP approaches the management of NLBP, based on the three main end-user cases that have been considered in the project: the clinical treatment of the patient that seeks healthcare, the return to work of a patient who has been off work due to NLBP, and the self-management of health.
