Abstract Occupational biomechanics models deal with the evaluation of physical activities such as lifting of loads. This allows the user to determine the stresses imposed on the musculoskeletal system while holding or moving a load. These models are useful tools in estimating these stresses especially those imposed on the lumbar spine. dynamic biomechanical models, as opposed to static models require the displacement-time information to obtain the kinematics needed to estimate the kinetics of… CONTINUE READING
