The purpose of this experiment was to investigate maximum acceptable initial and sustained forces while performing a push of 7.6 m, performed at a frequency of 1 push min-1 on a magnetic particle brake treadmill and a high-inertia push-cart. Eight male industrial workers performed a 40 min treadmill pushing task in the context of a larger experiment and two, 2 h push-cart tasks with a unique water loading system. A psychophysical methodology was employed, whereby the subjects were asked to… CONTINUE READING
