Abstract Obesity is highly prevalent in the workforce but little is known about its effects on musculoskeletal disorders risk factors, such as the posture adopted during work activity. Vertical Handling Tasks (VHT), including manual lifting and lowering loads, are quite frequent in industrial settings and are considered to be a major cause of Work-Related Musculoskeletal Disorders (WMSD). Therefore, the main objective of this study is to compare and analyse the strategies and postures adopted du...

Collaborative robotic solutions, where human workers and robots share their skills, are emerging in the industrial context. In order to achieve an appropriate level of Human-Robot Collaboration (HRC), the workstations’ design has to be human-centered and adaptive to the workers’ characteristics/limitations, considering ergonomic criteria. This study corresponds to the first phase of a research project to apply HRC to minimize the musculoskeletal risk associated with a manual assembly task (indus...

The school furniture (table and chair) tries to respond to the anthropometric requests of the students so that they can feel comfortable during the periods of learning. This conjugation is not easy considering the variety of anthropometric measures of the students that are in phase of structural growth in particular in the phase of pre-adolescence and adolescence. A study previously carried out by the authors, with students between the ages of 9 and 16 years old, showed a mismatch for 65% and 73...
