Occupational biomechanical models require reasonably accurate hand forces and moments to sequentially compute joint reaction forces and moments through the body producing ground forces and moments. We have pursued development of Artificial Neural Network (ANN) models to predict independent hand forces and moments using limited postural data and measured ground reaction forces. This paper summarizes our initial findings regarding the validity of the proposed modeling schema.
