Marina Heiden works at the Centre for Musculoskeletal Research, and is mostly active in the program Cost-efficient measurement of physical load in the Forte Centre The Body at Work - From Problem to Potential. She is also interested in health-promoting and risk factors in working life, and factors of importance for returning to work after sick leave.
- Cost-efficient modeling of physical workload
The aim of the project is to compare the cost-efficiency of methods for assessing physical load in working life. The project is partly funded by Forte.
- Development of a risk assessment method for visual ergonomics
The project is funded by AFA Försäkring, and performed in collaboration with researchers at the Faculty of Engineering, Lund University.
- Women of working age living with long-term pain: well-being, work ability and return to work
A longitudinal survey among women in Gävleborg county.

I teach ergonomics, experimental design and statistical analysis to graduate and post-graduate students, as well as to target groups in working life. For example, I teach the course Ergonomics , 7.5 credits, at the University of Gävle.
I also supervise graduate students at the University of Gävle and co-supervise a Ph.D. student at Occupational Medicine, Umeå University.
