Praise for previous editions of Occupational Biomechanics



"This book is a valuable resource for any advanced ergonomist
interested in physical ergonomics . . . provides valuable research
information."

-Ergonomics in Design



"[This book] represents a distillation of the authors' combined
years of experience in applying biomechanicsin various industries
and work situations . . . I recommend this book to anyone,
regardless of discipline, who is interested in understanding the
many biomechanical factors which must be considered when trying to
effectthe prevention and reduction of musculoskeletal injuries in
the workplace."

-Journal of Biomechanics



"Impressive descriptions of biomechanical concepts and worksite
considerations . . . based not only on mechanical and mathematical
principles, but on solid anatomical and physiologic constructs . .
. a very valuablereference source."

-Research Communications in Chemical Pathology and
Pharmacology



THE DEFINITIVE TEXT ON DESIGNING FOR THE DEMANDS OF TODAY'S
WORKPLACE



With critical applications in manufacturing, transportation,
defense, security, environmental safety and occupational health,
and other industries, the field of occupational biomechanics is
more central to industrial design than ever before.



This latest edition of the popular and widely adopted Occupational
Biomechanics provides the foundations and tools to assemble and
evaluate biomechanical processes as they apply to today's changing
industries, with emphasis on improving overall work efficiency and
preventing work-related injuries. The book expertly weaves
engineering and medical information from diverse sources and
provides a coherent treatment of the biomechanical principles
underlying the well-designed and ergonomically sound
workplace.



NEW TO THIS THOROUGHLY REVISED AND UPDATED FOURTH EDITION:

* 150 new references and many new illustrations

* Major changes within each chapter that reflect recent and
significant findings

* Recent research in musculoskeletal disorders

* New measurement techniques for biomechanical parameters and
numerous international initiatives on the subject



Presented in an easy-to-understand manner and supported by over 200
illustrations and numerous examples, Occupational Biomechanics,
Fourth Edition remains the premier one-stop reference for students
and professionals in the areas of industrial engineering, product
and process design, medicine, and occupational health and safety.
