STUDY DESIGN Feasibility study on the acquisition of lumbar spine kinematic data from upright magnetic resonance images obtained under heavy load carrying conditions. OBJECTIVE To characterize the effect of the load on spinal kinematics of active Marines under typical load carrying conditions from a macroscopic and lumbar-level approach in active-duty US Marines. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA Military personnel carry heavy loads of up to 68 kg depending on duty position and nature of the… CONTINUE READING
