Abstract

The main objectives of this paper are (1) to review and evaluate existing energy and cardiac cost prediction models for various tasks, (2) to present these models in a concise fashion that can be easily accessed by designers and practitioners of MMH, and (3) to provide recommendations for future research in modeling physiological responses of individuals engaged in MMH. More emphasis is placed on information that has become available since the publication of the NIOSH guide on work practices for manual lifting.
