A Comparison of Virtual Reality-Based Psychomotor Task Training with Visual and Haptic Aiding


By: W. Ma*, D. Kaber n, G. Gil n, M. Clamann*, W. Jeon n, B. Zhu n, N. Currie*

author keywords: Haptic simulation; Virtual reality; Neuropsychological tests; Motor skill training; Learning
TL;DR: The results of the experiment revealed that conditions providing haptic assistance (alone and in combination with visual aids) provided more cognitive skill training than the visual-only aiding condition and the visual condition resulted in better training of fine motor skill than the haptic condition.

The influence of rice plow handle design and whole-body posture on grip force and upper-extremity muscle activation

ERGONOMICS, 57(10), 1526–1535.

By: M. Swangnetr*, D. Kaber n, C. Phimphasak*, P. Namkorn*, K. Saenlee*, B. Zhu n, R. Puntumetakul*

author keywords: tool handle design; grip force; muscle activity; whole-body posture; body part discomfort
MeSH headings : Adult; Agriculture / instrumentation; Arm / physiology; Equipment Design; Hand Strength / physiology; Humans; Male; Muscle Contraction / physiology; Oryza; Posture / physiology
TL;DR: An experimental investigation of the influence of plow handle design and farmer whole-body posture on grip force and arm muscle activity revealed the proposed handles, designed to promote neutral wrist posture, to increase upper-arm muscle use between 47% and 70% across ground types, as compared with conventional handles.
