Our research focuses on the application of principles of biomechanics to understand the physical demand associated with task performance. This spans various fields such as material handling (assembly) in manufacturing industries, healthcare delivery etc. Our goal is ultimately is to develop lasting interventions to occupational-related musculoskeletal disorders (low back pain, shoulder pain, etc) in these industries. Below are abstracts to some projects that we have worked on from previous studies.
- Effect of Time on Variability of Trunk Kinematics in the early phase of a repetitive lifting task
- Effect of Lift Height and Weight on Variability of Trunk Kinematics
- Inter-individual Variability of Lifting Kinematics
- Radiation protection equipment on back and shoulder muscle activation
