|This procedure describes how to use the Biomechanics Single Action Analysis command.|
|This ergonomic tool measures biomechanical data on a
worker in a given pose. From the current manikin posture, the Single Action
Analysis tool calculates and outputs information such as the lumbar spinal
loads (abdominal force, abdominal pressure, body movements) and the forces
and moments on manikin joints. All the output incorporated in the model are
based on research results and algorithms published by the scientific
The forces (loads) acting on the manikin's hands are taken into account in the biomechanical analysis; these forces represent the load of carry, push, lift/lower, or pull, depending on the scenario, and are available for the hands only. Both the Load Properties and the Biomechanics Single Action Analysis dialog boxes can be open at the same time. The last analysis is updated when the load is modified.
