Learning curve analysis of a patient lift-assist device

APPLIED ERGONOMICS, 38(6), 765–771.

By: S. Reid* & G. Mirka*

author keywords: intervention; learning; musculoskeletal
MeSH headings : Adult; Ergonomics; Humans; Learning; Lifting; Musculoskeletal Diseases / prevention & control; North Carolina; Occupational Health; Self-Help Devices; Teaching
TL;DR: The results emphasize the importance in considering learning when introducing an intervention in the workplace, and showed that in this instance, training type had an immediate impact on productivity, but that this effect diminished over time. (via Semantic Scholar)

Effects of age on muscle activity and upper body kinematics during a repetitive forearm supination task

INTERNATIONAL JOURNAL OF INDUSTRIAL ERGONOMICS, 36(11), 951–957.

By: Z. Jiang n, Y. Shu n, J. Drum n, S. Reid n & G. Mirka n

author keywords: age; supination torque; electromyography; upper extremity kinematics; Baltimore Therapeutic Equipment Work Simulator; manual screwdriver
TL;DR: Empirical evidence is provided that age alone does not have a consistent impact on biomechanical responses during physically demanding work tasks. (via Semantic Scholar)

2005 journal article

A study of lifting tasks performed on laterally slanted ground surfaces

ERGONOMICS, 48(7), 782–795.

By: Z. Jiang n, G. Shin n, J. Freeman n, S. Reid n & G. Mirka n

author keywords: asymmetric lifting; surface angle; biomechanical model; slant; slope; slip
MeSH headings : Adult; Biomechanical Phenomena; Electromyography; Female; Humans; Lifting; Male; Posture; Task Performance and Analysis; United States; Weight-Bearing
TL;DR: The results of the dynamic lifting tasks revealed a consistent reduction in the peak dynamic L5/S1 moment and an increase in the instability producing lateral forces with increasing slant angle, providing quantitative insight into the response of the human lifter under these adverse lifting conditions.
