Abstract
The broadly defined goal of this project was to explore the stochastic nature of the biomechanics of the low back during occupational manual materials handling tasks. Towards this end, three separate research projects were completed during the period of this grant. Project one was the specific study outlined in the original proposal, However, as is described below, Projects two and three became necessary as the model was refined. Project four describes a project just underway that is an application of some of the knowledge gained during the execution of this funded project. This final progress report has been divided into four section - one for each of the research projects.
