Occupational Biomechanicsby Don B. Chaffin, Gunnar B. J. Anderson
Reflecting the authors' more than 35 years of combined experience in applying biomechanics in various industries, it presents a comprehensive and accessible examination of the widely scattered literature in this field. As such it explores the biomechanical principles both in the prevention of musculoskeletal disorders in industry and working conditions and worker performance in general. This Second Edition reflects the tremendous amount of rapidly emerging knowledge that has taken place since the publication of the earlier volume with a balance struck between introducing new findings and keeping it simple and of a reasonable size.
