A passive back exoskeleton supporting symmetric and asymmetric lifting in stoop and squat posture reduces trunk and hip extensor muscle activity and adjusts body posture - A laboratory study.

Tessy Luger, Mona Bär, Robert Seibt, Pia Rimmele, Monika A Rieger, Benjamin Steinhilber,

The influence of a passive exoskeleton was assessed during repetitive lifting with different lifting styles (squat, stoop) and orientations (frontal/symmetric, lateral/asymmetric) on trunk and hip extensor muscle activity (primary outcomes), abdominal, leg, and shoulder muscle activity, joint kinematics, and heart rate (secondary outcomes). Using the exoskeleton significantly and partially clinically ... Read more >>

Active and passive work breaks during simulated laparoscopy among laparoscopic surgeons: study protocol for a controlled, randomised cross-over laboratory trial.

Tessy Luger, Monika A Rieger, Rosina Bonsch, Bernhard Krämer, Robert Seibt, Benjamin Steinhilber,

<h4>Introduction</h4>Laparoscopy has partially replaced open surgery due to the lower infection rate for the patient and hence better and shorter recovery. However, the surgeon's physical load is higher due to longer duration static and awkward body postures, increasing the risk for developing work-related musculoskeletal disorders. Interventions of an organisational nature ... Read more >>

Sex differences in muscle activity and motor variability in response to a non-fatiguing repetitive screwing task.

Tessy Luger, Robert Seibt, Monika A Rieger, Benjamin Steinhilber,

BACKGROUND:Musculoskeletal disorders are more prevalent among women than among men, which may be explained by aspects of motor control, including neuromuscular requirements and motor variability. Using an exploratory approach, this study aimed to evaluate sex differences in neuromuscular responses and motor variability during a repetitive task performed on 3 days. ... Read more >>

The Role of Motor Learning on Measures of Physical Requirements and Motor Variability During Repetitive Screwing.

Tessy Luger, Robert Seibt, Monika A Rieger, Benjamin Steinhilber,

We investigated whether physical requirements and motor variability decreased over days in novices during a repetitive screwing task. Fifty-seven subjects performed one hour of repetitive screwing and fastening on three days, separated by 2⁻7 days. The average physical requirement and relative cycle-to-cycle variability (coefficient of variation, i.e., CV) were calculated ... Read more >>

Work-break schedules for preventing musculoskeletal symptoms and disorders in healthy workers.

Tessy Luger, Christopher G Maher, Monika A Rieger, Benjamin Steinhilber,

<h4>Background</h4>Work-related musculoskeletal disorders are a group of musculoskeletal disorders that comprise one of the most common disorders related to occupational sick leave worldwide. Musculoskeletal disorders accounted for 21% to 28% of work absenteeism days in 2017/2018 in the Netherlands, Germany and the UK. There are several interventions that may be ... Read more >>

Influence of a passive lower-limb exoskeleton during simulated industrial work tasks on physical load, upper body posture, postural control and discomfort.

Tessy Luger, Robert Seibt, Timothy J Cobb, Monika A Rieger, Benjamin Steinhilber,

This study investigated the effect of wearing a passive lower-limb exoskeleton on physical load, kinematics, postural control, and discomfort. 45 healthy males participated and were exposed to three 21-min simulations, including screwing, cable-mounting, and clip-fitting. Each exposure comprised one of three exoskeleton statuses (standing, high and low sitting on exoskeleton) ... Read more >>

Influence of Work Pace on Upper Extremity Kinematics and Muscle Activity in a Short-Cycle Repetitive Pick-and-Place Task.

Tessy Luger, Svend Erik Mathiassen, Divya Srinivasan, Tim Bosch,

<h4>Objectives</h4>This study investigated the extent to which controlled changes in work pace in a cyclic pick-and-place task influence upper extremity kinematics and muscle activity, and whether an effect depends on working height.<h4>Methods</h4>Thirteen participants performed the task for 4 min at each of five work paces ranging from 8 to 12 ...

Is rotating between static and dynamic work beneficial for our fatigue state?

Tessy Luger, Tim Bosch, Marco J M Hoozemans, DirkJan H E J Veeger, Michiel P de Looze,

Shoulder disorders comprise a large part of work-related musculoskeletal disorders. Risk factors, such as repetitiveness and monotony, may cause muscle fatigue and be attenuated by task rotation. We investigated rotation between a dynamic box-lifting task and a relatively static pick-and-place task and aimed to determine whether (1) a high rotation ... Read more >>

Tessy Luger, Tim Bosch, Marco Hoozemans, Michiel de Looze, Dirkjan Veeger,

Work-related musculoskeletal disorders are increasing due to industrialisation of work processes. Task variation has been suggested as potential intervention. The objectives of this study were to investigate, first, the influence of task variation on electromyographic (EMG) manifestations of shoulder muscle fatigue and discomfort; second, noticeable postural shoulder changes over time; ...

The influence of task variation on manifestation of fatigue is ambiguous - a literature review.

Tessy Luger, Tim Bosch, Dirkjan Veeger, Michiel de Looze,

Task variation has been proposed to reduce shoulder fatigue resulting from repetitive hand-arm tasks. This review analyses the effect of task variation, both 'temporal (i.e. change of work-rest ratio)' and 'activity (i.e. job rotation)' variation, on physiological responses, endurance time (ET) and subjective feelings. Pubmed was searched and complemented with ... Read more >>

Effects of fatigue on trunk stability in elite gymnasts.

Jaap H van Dieën, Tessy Luger, Jeroen van der Eb,

The aim of the present study was to test the hypothesis that fatigue due to exercises performed in training leads to a decrement of trunk stability in elite, female gymnasts. Nine female gymnasts participated in the study. To fatigue trunk muscles, four series of five dump handstands on the uneven ... Read more >>
