Occupational Biomechanics

Occupational Biomechanics studies the mechanical laws in relation to the structure and movement of living organisms as applied in the workplace. It combines the fields of engineering mechanics, biology, physiology, and ergonomics. For instance, an occupational biomechanics analyst recommended that the workers in a food processing facility should be given appropriate protective clothing since their exposure to cold materials lessens dexterity.
