While going about their trade, car mechanics and technicians usually complain of difficulty in reaching highly placed areas in the engine compartment, especially in large automotive such as SUVs and pickup trucks. This usually has a negative effect on the health of these technicians as a result of all the bending when reaching too low placed sections of the engine and stretching while trying to work on high placed sections. It also proves to be an occupational hazard for the auto technicians as lack of adequate reach makes them prone to work related accidents.
