This study aims to develop ranking systems for evaluation of the stressfulness of joints and joint motions based on perceived discomforts measured through an experiment. Twenty healthy male subjects participated in the experiment, where discomforts for varying joint motions in the sitting and standing postures were measured using the magnitude estimation. The results showed that the perceived discomforts were affected by the type of joint motions, size of joint motions, and joints. The joints… CONTINUE READING
