STUDY DESIGN Measured trunk kinematics, applied moments, and trunk muscle activities were employed in a biomechanical model to determine load experiences by the spine during dynamic torsional exertions. OBJECTIVES The purpose of this investigation was to examine the influence of dynamic twisting parameters on spinal load. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA Axial twisting of the torso has been identified as a significant risk factor for occupationally related low back disorders. However, previous… CONTINUE READING
