A sensitivity analysis of two alternative models predicting damage to vertebral motion segments (VMS) in cyclic compression was performed to evaluate the relative probability of damage occurring when peak compression force, loading frequency, or duration in a lifting task is changed. The first model is based on the assumption that fatigue failure is the mechanism underlying damage to the VMS in cyclic compression. The second model is based on the assumption that the VMS damage in cyclic… CONTINUE READING
