NEW STUDY FROM THE OHIO STATE UNIVERSITY SPINE RESEARCH INSTITUTE: PUSHING/PULLING INJURY RISK WHILE TURNING
Turning has been noted to pose a higher risk for injury to the spine than straight-line pushing and pulling. This fact necessitates the need for accurate turning force measurements when quantifying risk for injury relative to biomechanically determined guidelines. Discover your risk of musculoskeletal injury while turning during a push/pull movement.
WHAT YOU'LL LEARN FROM THIS SUMMARY
- Details of the testing
- How to best assess injury risk while turning during a push/pull movement
- Tools/equipment that will help you better measure your risk level
- Accuracy level of a single-axis push/pull gauge
- 3 main takeaways from the study
The CDMI (Center for Disruptive Musculoskeletal Innovations) is funded by the National Science Foundation. This center is a group of industry experts (in this case, Caster Connection) who work with institutions of higher education (in this case, The Ohio State University Spine Research Institute). The CDMI conducted a push/pull study to understand how turning puts practitioners at risk of musculoskeletal injury.
