The present study is focused on nurses that attend neonates, and more in detail on the standing bottle-feeding activity. To measure the ergonomic risk, REBA method analyzes the human body in two parts in order to get a final score that represents the risk level and the required action level in this task. Data will be obtained through the repetition of the task in a controlled and settled space with two different systems, a referenced one that is a photogrammetry laboratory and the other about depth sensors, which will be assessed. Besides setting the risk level of the task, the project assesses the sensor in a functional way and looks for using this experimental method in the future in real time and in real areas that need a quick and reliable ergonomic risk analysis. The results showed that depth sensors can be used as a reliable instrument to determine the risk level and that the feeding task presents a medium risk level which means that an action should be taken.
