A Peek into the Future: Pre-conference Presentations

Presenters: Jim Potvin, Ph.D., Potvin Biomechanics Inc.and Gary Allread, Ph.D., Ohio State University's SRI-Ergonomics

Join us to get a peek into the pre-conference programs that will be presented on Monday, March 27, 2017. 

"Ergonomic Methods to Assess the Cumulative Effects of Multiple Tasks: Moving Beyond Isolated Task Analyses"

Jim Potvin will share some of the basic principles and research related to physiology of muscle fatigue and tissue injury resulting from repetitive loads.

"Measuring 101: How to Make the Most of Your Ergonomics Assessments using Low-Tech Measurement Tools"

Gary Allread will assist ergonomists and safety professionals in determining what measurement devices they should have in their “ergonomics toolbox,” such as scales, force gauges, video cameras, tape measures and goniometers. Both speakers will give a preview of the material they will cover during their full pre-conference sessions.
