Abstract
A dynamic method to test a person's lifting capacity, as opposed to static testing, is discussed. Previous methods to assess lifting capacities are reviewed. Equipment and techniques for dynamic testing are described. The experiments performed with present techniques are discussed. The authors conclude that the reliability of the test is as good or better as the reliabilities reported for static strength tests and that the maximum weights that subjects were willing to lift are similar to the results reported by previous experimenters. The authors recommend that the application of this test in the industrial environment be assessed.
