||Development of predictive equations for lifting strengths
||Oct. 1995, Vol.26, No.5, p.327-341. Illus. 34 ref.
||Lifting strengths were measured for 30 subjects (18 males and 12 females) performing stoop lifts and squat lifts. For each lift, strengths were tested in standard posture, and isokinetic and isometric modes at half, three-quarters and full horizontal individual reach distances in sagittal, 30░ lateral and 60░ lateral planes. There was a significant correlation between lifting strength on one hand and the sex of the subject, and the reach, plane and velocity of the lift on the other; more than 70% of variance in lifting strength was accounted for by the anthropometric variables and sagittal plane strength values. Human lifting strength capabilities may be predicted based on simple anthropometric and strength characteristics.
