Abstract The aim of this review was to provide an overview of assistive exoskeletons that have specifically been developed for industrial purposes and to assess the potential effect of these… Expand
Upper-limb surface electro-myography at maximum supination and pronation torques: the effect of elbow and forearm angle.
Forearm pronation and supination, and increased muscular activity in the wrist extensors have been both linked separately to work-related injuries of the upper limb, especially humeral epicondylitis.… Expand

Sitting is a common aggravating factor in low back pain (LBP), and re-education of sitting posture is a common aspect of LBP management. However, there is debate regarding what is an optimal sitting… Expand
Estimating upper limb discomfort level due to intermittent isometric pronation torque with various combinations of elbow angles, forearm rotation angles, force and frequency with upper arm at 90°…
Abstract Industrial jobs involving upper arm abduction have a strong association with musculoskeletal disorders and injury. But there is still paucity of data on the different risk factors that are… Expand
Towards monitoring lumbo-pelvic posture in real-life situations: concurrent validity of a novel posture monitor and a traditional laboratory-based motion analysis system.
- K. O'Sullivan, L. O’Sullivan, A. Campbell, P. O'Sullivan, W. Dankaerts
- Manual therapy
- 1 February 2012
Many factors are associated with low back pain (LBP), including provocative spinal postures. Consequently, lumbo-pelvic posture is commonly assessed in LBP patients. A novel wireless monitor… Expand
Cognitive Functional Therapy for Disabling Nonspecific Chronic Low Back Pain: Multiple Case-Cohort Study
Background Multiple dimensions across the biopsychosocial spectrum are relevant in the management of nonspecific chronic low back pain (NSCLBP). Cognitive functional therapy is a behaviorally… Expand
Assessment of an active industrial exoskeleton to aid dynamic lifting and lowering manual handling tasks.

- Applied ergonomics
- 1 April 2018
The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of an industrial exoskeleton on muscle activity, perceived musculoskeletal effort, measured and perceived contact pressure at the trunk, thighs and… Expand
The effect of dynamic sitting on the prevention and management of low back pain and low back discomfort: a systematic review
- K. O'Sullivan, M. O’Keeffe, L. O’Sullivan, P. O'Sullivan, W. Dankaerts
- 18 July 2012
Dynamic sitting has been proposed to reduce low back pain (LBP) and/or low back discomfort (LBD) while sitting. This is supported by studies suggesting that subjects with LBP assume more static,… Expand
Human Centred Design Considerations for Connected Health Devices for the Older Adult
Connected health devices are generally designed for unsupervised use, by non-healthcare professionals, facilitating independent control of the individuals own healthcare. Older adults are major users… Expand
Evaluation of a passive exoskeleton for static upper limb activities.
- K. Huysamen, T. Bosch, M. D. de Looze, Konrad S. Stadler, E. Graf, L. O’Sullivan
- Applied ergonomics
- 1 July 2018
The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of a passive upper body exoskeleton on muscle activity, perceived musculoskeletal effort, local perceived pressure and subjective usability for a… Expand
