Comparing knee joint kinematics, kinetics and cumulative load between healthy-weight and obese young adults
(University of Waterloo, 2011-05-20)
One of the most poorly understood co-morbidities associated with obesity is the pathway to osteoarthritis of the knee. To implement appropriate preventative strategies, it is important to explore how obesity is a causal ...
Quantifying the Shoulder Rhythm and Comparing Non-Invasive Methods of Scapular Tracking for Overhead and Axially Rotated Humeral Postures
(University of Waterloo, 2011-10-27)
The present research quantified the shoulder rhythm for arm postures that represent the right-handed reachable workspace and compared 3 methods of scapular tracking: acromion marker cluster (AMC), stylus and scapular ...
A biomechanical investigation into the link between simulated job static strength and psychophysical strength: Do they share a “weakest link” relationship?
(University of Waterloo, 2011-01-17)
Maximum voluntary forces and psychophysically acceptable forces are often used to set force guidelines for exertions as a means to protect against overexertion injuries in the workplace. The focus of this dissertation was ...
