The amount of load that can be borne by the different components of the lumbar region is fairly well understood, as are resulting injuries from overloading. Less severe lumbar injuries involve a wide range of factors, including: heredity, obesity, age, occupation, sports, cardiovascular risk factors, and depression. Some of the most painful conditions that require high levels of care involve lumbar spine fracture or soft tissue injury from falls, contact sports, vehicle collisions, aircraft ejection, and underbody blasts from roadway explosions (military injuries). Each of these injury scenarios elicits a different kinematic response of the spine as a result of load direction, magnitude, and duration. Updated from a popular earlier volume, this new compendium includes landmark papers from 1994 through 2013 that focus exclusively on lumbar injuries.

This book provides an introduction to the role, value, scope and the unique contributions the field of human factors can bring to the design process for all products. Aimed at the engineer and manager with no formal training in the life and social sciences, it is not intended to train the methods of human factors, but rather to provide knowledge that will enable engineers and managers to determine if including human factors in the planning and execution of product design is justified. Chapters include: Reasons Engineers Provide for Limiting Emphasis on Human Factors The Academic Disciplines Supporting Human Factors Human Factors Engineering and more

Book
The CAESAR (Civilian American and European Surface Anthropometry Resource) research project was a landmark study that has brought us the most current data on civilian body measurements. This final report details the methodology of the study and the data gathering process. It gives detailed explanation on the survey instruments used, how the study was conducted and who was included to achieve a valid demographic sampling. The product provides a wealth of information on this large scale and statistically valid research project.

This book presents seven case studies in which digital human models were used to solve different types of physical problems associated with proposed human-machine interaction tasks. This book includes contributions from researchers at Ford, Boeing, DaimlerChrysler, General Motors, the U.S. Air Force, and others.
