Resumen The risk of occupational back injuries still remains high. These injuries have serious consequences on workers (with manual handlers being the most affected), and constitute an economic burden for companies and society in general. To assess precisely the risks from a preventive standpoint, articular biomechanical models are available that are capable of estimating tissue loading; however, they yield variable results. This study involved the comparison of two of these models, as well as improving their validity and applicability. Results enabled a better quantification of the intensity of tissue loading so that these risks can be reduced.
