Abstract

Computer models for predicting the lifting and lowering capacity of workers were developed based on task variables and their interaction effects using a psychophysical approach. These models are applicable to planes other than the traditional sagittal plane. The input to the models comprises frequency of lift or lower, height of lift or lower, box width, box length, angle of twist of the body, and body weight. All models were tested and validated. An interactive software program was developed to aid designers of lifting and lowering tasks in selecting the acceptable levels of lifting and lowering capacity of workers for extended periods of time.
