Synopsis:

Occupational Biomechanics, Fifth Edition provides the foundations and tools to assemble and evaluate biomechanical processes. It describes the mechanical side of ergonomics. This revision of a well-established graduate-level text enables the book to stay current with research and development in occupational biomechanics. All chapters are updated to reflect recent data (anthropometry for example).  New methods in biomechanics, simulation, movement recording, job analysis, hand activity, and muscle fatigue have been inserted.  Rarely used job analysis methods (example: posture targeting) are removed and replaced by more contemporary methods (example: Hand Activity Level). Since worker selection is no longer a predominant issue, this part has been removed and the section on administrative controls is developed further. Review questions are updated and/or expanded.
