The effects on postural stability (sway) were investigated for different work loads under conditions of wearing a full facepiece respirator and not wearing any respiratory protection device. Fifteen subjects accomplished light (40 W), moderate (85 W), and heavy (125 W) work loads under the two conditions. Measurements of postural sway were made immediately after each load by using a multicomponent, strain gage-type force platform. Changes in each subject's movement pattern of the center of… CONTINUE READING
