Determination and integration of human force capabilities and requirements is an essential component of ergonomic evaluation. With regard to hand-intensive tasks, direct force measurements can be cumbersome and intrusive. Here, the use of surface electromyography (EMG) was evaluated. EMG was obtained from three standardised electrode sites on the forearms of 30 individuals. Linear regression models were generated to estimate finger force levels from normalised electromyographic measures, while… CONTINUE READING
