Abstract
Biomechanical analyses and models serve a useful purpose in estimating the stresses on the musculoskeletal system. In dynamic biomechanical analysis, displacement-dime data must be known in order to estimate the kinematics and kinetics of the movement. However, the collection of this displacement data is both tedious and expensive. With the development of simulation lifting models, it is possible to provide an indirect means of performing the biomechanical analysis without having to actually collect the displacement-time information. The significance of the current research is its ability to estimate the kinematics and kinetics of lifting movements under specified characteristics of the anthropometry, the work station, and the lifting task.
