    Sammanfattning : Observation methods and imaging techniques - assessments of physical exposure in repetitive work with focus on neck and upper extremities The aim of this thesis was to develop, establish and validate observation methods for exposure assessments in epidemiological studies of repetitive work. A second aim was to increase the quality of input data for biomechanical shoulder models, by reliability and validity studies of Magnetic Reso-nance Imaging (MRI) and Ultrasound Scanning (US).

    Sammanfattning : Vehicle design is characterized by a high number of compromises. The special role of human factors in the process is to ensure that the compromises do not occur at the expense of the driver and passengers. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Ergonomics at Home : Design for Safe Living and Home Care

    Författare :Jenny Hjalmarson; Tore Johan Larsson; Stefan Lundberg; Lars Nyberg; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Ergonomics; aging; work posture; four-wheeled walker; home care worker; living at home; accessibility;

    Sammanfattning : The home should represent safety and security for the person who lives there, and this is an important factor for independence and autonomy in very old age. With aging populations, the needs for long-term care increase, care provided by spouses and/or from the growing home care sector. Injuries among these groups are common. LÄS MER

  5. 5. A laboratory vehicle mock-up research work on truck driver’s selected seat position and posture : A mathematical model approach with respect to anthropometry, body landmark locations and discomfort

    Författare :Kianoush Fatollahzadeh; Jan Forslin; Roland Kadefoers; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; truck driving; anthropometry; body landmarks; discomfort; sitting posture; Other industrial engineering and economics; Övrig industriell teknik och ekonomi;

    Sammanfattning : Professional truck drivers are highly exposed to fatigue and work related injuries. Truck drivers are common victims of musculoskeletal disorders, frequently suffering from pain symptoms particularly in the neck, shoulder and lower back. This situation is believed to be a contributor to the high absenteeism in this job category. LÄS MER
