Abstract [en]

Use of digital human modeling (DHM) tools enables early assessment of ergonomic risks in the production development process. This early risk assessment can indicate needs for preventive actions in order to decrease risks for work-related musculoskeletal disorders. A method for the assessment of physical workload has been developed, for the analysis of wrist joint data produced by a DHM tool. The method is tested in a simulation model of an actual manual assembly station in industry where it is assumed that physical workload problems exist. The results show that the method can be successfully applied on an industrial case. In addition, presumptive risks and possible diagnoses are predicted based on the similarity of the simulated task’s motions with motions from other known work class profiles stored in a database based on epidemiological research.
