Description: Two of the most important goals of ergonomics are the comfort, and the health and safety of the working population. Written by leaders in the field, this second edition of Biomechanics in Ergonomics presents thoroughly updated and new material regarding the biomechanics of tissues and organs in the workplace. This text establishes a foundation for the understanding of gross biomechanical loads on the human system at the tissue level. It describes biomechanical risk factors and supplies exposure assessment tools and techniques. Comprehensive scope is suitable for use by ergonomic engineers and physical therapists, and as a textbook for ergonomics courses.
