View Full Version : heavy biomechanical load of children spine

07-17-2005, 06:56 PM
Dear Biomch-L subscribers,

We are looking for any data concerning biomechanical load in children (mostly in age between 7 to 13 years old) during lifting and carrying loads. In Poland children are carrying all books from home to school and back home, in their bags. This is suspected to create quite heavy biomechanical load of children spine, which can cause overload and even disorders.

Thank you in advance for any response
