Intentional and Unintentional Injury
Low back loads in strawberry picking for injury prevention
This study is 1) conducting pilot motion analysis experiments of stooped posture work and 2) using a thoracolumbar spine and ribcage model to estimate back extensor and lumbar spine compression forces. These results will be used to develop proposals aimed at studying low back loads in strawberry pickers with emphasis on developing injury prevention strategies.
