Abstract

In lifting task execution, lumbar spine load is affected by numerous variables, where some of them can be identified as most significant. In order to keep lifting task execution most effective while avoiding lumbar spine injury caused by spine instability, risk factors should be minimized. Biomechanical analysis protocol is created for the purpose of lifting task analysis, which reveals real-time variations of biomechanical variables, essential for estimation of lumbar spine stability. Performed analysis conclusions emphasize that although proper lifting technique is well-known theoretically, lifting object geometry, center of mass, subject anthropometry and lifting capabilities, should be sufficiently determined before the task execution is demanded.
