A psychophysical investigation of grip types with specific application to job rotation
(University of Waterloo, 2008-01-09)
Job rotation is recommended to prevent musculoskeletal disorders (MSD). The premise is by involving different tissues a “working rest” for other tissues is created. The possible health benefits from this relief have not ...
Central Nervous System Control of Dynamic Stability during Locomotion in Complex Environments
(University of Waterloo, 2006)
A major function of the central nervous system (CNS) during locomotion is the ability to maintain dynamic stability during threats to balance. The CNS uses reactive, predictive, and anticipatory mechanisms in order to ...
Biomechanical Predictors of Functionally Induced Low Back Pain, Acute Response to Prolonged Standing Exposure, and Impact of a Stabilization-Based Clinical Exercise Intervention
(University of Waterloo, 2009-07-24)
Purpose: Biomechanical differences between people with low back pain (LBP) and healthy controls have been shown previously. LBP has been associated with standing postures in occupational settings. A transient pain-generating ...
