Dear Subscribers,

John Z. Wu from the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (USA) will be giving a webcast presentation on Wednesday April 7th on the subject of;

"Workplace Ergonomics - Stilt Walking"

Stilts are commonly used at construction sites to raise the workers to a higher level above ground to increase the efficiency for many tasks. Some epidemiological studies indicate that the use of stilts may place workers at increased risk for knee injuries or may increase the likelihood of trips and falls. However, no biomechanical analysis has been performed to examine the effects of the stilts walking on the musculoskeletal loading.

The study presented in this webcast hypothesizes that the use of stilts in walking will increase the musculoskeletal loadings in the lower limbs. This is investigated in the AnyBody Modeling SystemT.
