Study Design. Spine loadings during a variety of lifting exertions were compared with individual torso kinematic abilities. Relationships were evaluated between these measures. Objective. To determine if trunk kinematic status (functional impairment) is indicative of spine loading increases in patients with low back pain (LBP) compared to asymptomatic individuals. Summary of Background Data. Recurrent LBP is a common and costly problem that may be related to increased spine loads in those… Expand
Workplace design guidelines for asymptomatic vs. low-back-injured workers.
TLDR
It is believed that adherence to three lifting guidelines indicating safe, medium risk and high risk lifting tasks for low back patients as well as asymptomatic workers can minimize the risk of recurrent low back disorders due to occupational lifting. Expand
Trunk loading and back pain
TLDR
It is concluded that perturbed gait seems suitable to provoke higher demands on trunk stability in adults and sensorimotor training (SMT) to enhance trunk stability and compensation of unexpected sudden loading should be preferred. Expand
Prediction of the Spinal Musculoskeletal Loadings during Level Walking and Stair Climbing after Two Types of Simulated Interventions in Patients with Lumbar Disc Herniation
TLDR
Predicting the improvement of spinal musculoskeletal loadings during level walking and stair climbing after two simulated interventions revealed the different compensatory responses on the spinal load sharing. Expand
Influence of low back pain and its remission on motor abundance in a low-load lifting task
TLDR
Individuals with LBP had similar overall motor abundance, but use different activation profiles of muscle modes than asymptomatic people during lifting, such that both cLBP and rLBP individuals demonstrated greater activity of Muscle modes that reflected lumbopelvic coactivation during the lifting phase compared to controls.

TLDR
LDH patients exhibited different kinetic alternations during level walking and stair climbing, however, both adaptive strategies added extra burdens to the trunk system and further increased the risk for development of LDH. Expand
The effect of load in a floor-to-bench lift during the WorkHab functional capacity evaluation.
TLDR
This study provides insight into kinematic changes and support observations made by the WorkHab assessor in determining a safe maximal lift during floor-to-bench lifts. Expand
EMG Activity of Trunk Muscles in Patients with Chronic Low Back Pain after Fatigue
Fatigue, Abdominal muscle, EMG, co-contraction, loading Background: Low back pain (LBP) is one of the most prevalent musculoskeletal disorders. Altered movement patterns in LBP patients can reflectExpand
Quantification of the Safe Maximal Lift in Functional Capacity Evaluations: Comparison of Muscle Recruitment Using SEMG and Therapist Observation
TLDR
Convergent validity of the bench to shoulder lift of the WorkHab FCE was not established as no relationship between the muscle recruitment using SEMG and SML, as determined by therapist observation was identified during this lift. Expand
Low Back Pain Recurrence in Occupational Environments
TLDR
Recurrence is greatly dependent on how one defines recurrence with symptom reporting yielding 5.5 times as many recurrences compared with employer confirmed lost time with more quantitative measures of worker musculoskeletal function yielded the best predictions of recurrence. Expand
The Effect of Lumbar Disc Herniation on Spine Loading Characteristics during Trunk Flexion and Two Types of Picking Up Activities
TLDR
It is suggested that the LDH patients demonstrate compensatory increases in the most trunk muscle activities and all spinal loads, and these negative compensatory responses increase the risk of the aggravation of disc herniation. Expand

Spine loading in patients with low back pain during asymmetric lifting exertions.
TLDR
Greater levels of antagonistic muscle coactivation resulted in increases in spine loading for patients with LBP, and specific lifting conditions that tend to exacerbate loading can be identified by means of physical workplace requirements. Expand
Spine Loading Characteristics of Patients With Low Back Pain Compared With Asymptomatic Individuals
TLDR
The findings suggest a significant mechanical spine loading cost is associated with low back pain resulting from trunk muscle coactivation, which is further exacerbated by the increases in body weight that often accompany low backPain. Expand
Changes in Trunk Dynamics and Spine Loading During Repeated Trunk Exertions
TLDR
This study has shown that spine loading patterns do indeed change with repetition, suggesting that one needs to monitor these changes throughout repetitive lifting tasks if low back disorder risk is to be minimized. Expand
Flexibility and velocity of the normal and impaired lumbar spine.
TLDR
It is suggested that trunk velocity be use as a quantitative measure of low back disorder and that it be used as a means to monitor the rehabilitative progress of patients with LBP. Expand
An Assessment of Complex Spinal Loads During Dynamic Lifting Tasks
TLDR
The results showed that complex dynamic motions similar to those observed in risky industrial tasks generated substantial levels of combined compressive and shear loads and higher loading rates were observed under these conditions. Expand
A Biomechanical Assessment and Model of Axial Twisting in the Thoracolumbar Spine
TLDR
The results may help explain, biomechanically, why epidemiologic findings have repeatedly identified twisting as a risk factor for low back disorder, and how the spine is loaded during twisting motions. Expand
Spine loading during trunk lateral bending motions.
TLDR
It is expected that this combined (compression and lateral shear) loading is the mechanism for increased risk observed in industry. Expand
Relation between spinal load factors and the high-risk probability of occupational low-back disorder.
TLDR
Improved understanding of the dynamic biomechanical interactions influencing the tolerance and injury mechanisms of the spine may permit more accurate assessments of workplace injury factors associated with LBD and reduced incidence of occupationally related low-back pain. Expand

TLDR
A new technique to measure dynamic trunk performance characteristics during repetitive flexion and extension of the trunk at the preferred speed in a large, healthy population (N=351) and has provided the basis for quantifying the extent of trunk dysfunction of patients with different low back disorder diagnoses.

The effects of motion on trunk biomechanics.
TLDR
The ability of the individual to perform a task "safely" might be significantly compromised by the muscle coactivity that accompanies dynamic exertions, according to a review of the literature that evaluates the influence of trunk motion on trunk strength and structural loading. Expand
