The Passive Load-Bearing Capacity of the Human Lumbar Spine in the Neutral Standing Posture Shaun B. Jeffs Department of Mechanical Engineering Master of Science The human lumbar spine has been shown to support compressive loads of 1000 N in standing and walking, and up to many thousands of Newtons in strenuous activities such as lifting. The literature presents a number of biomechanical models that seek to replicate the loadcarrying capacity of the spine while adhering to physiological… Expand
