Some advantages and limitations of Macro static models for determining spinal injury potential during weight lifting.
Department of Industrial and Operations Engineering, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, Michigan, 1975 Apr; :1-20
Low-back pain has been empirically related to a number of different physical attributes of both individuals and the task of weight lifting. Some of these attributes are easily explained by a simple static biomechanical model. Such a model is developed and numerical simulations carried out. Advantages and limitations are discussed.
