Isometric maximum forces of the whole-body in not upright postures and hand-finger-forces for the assembly-specific atlas.
In: 17th World Congress on Ergonomics (IEA 2009), Beijing (China), 9. - 14. August 2009, CD-ROM, [Conference or Workshop Item]

Abstract

Maximum isometric forces have been measured for 54 cases (nine postures while the persons sit, knee, or stand, each with six directions of force) of the arm-shoulder and whole-body system. All postures relate to typical postures in real working situations for the vehicle, utility vehicle, and air traffic industry. In addition, 38 force cases are presented of the left and right hand-finger-system for the sitting and standing position. 272 male subjects (workers), from six industrial project partners provided data material. Based on this data, the Force atlas for assembly operations has been created. It is applicable for design engineers, production planners, safety engineers, physicians of occupational medicine, and ergonomists. A force assessment method for shop floor and planning analyses was modelled in line with current scientific knowledge and the results of the laboratory studies. This method allows the user to derive maximum recommended action force values from maximum static action forces while taking into account specific task and operator related parameters.
