Ratings of perceived thigh and back exertion in forest workers during repetitive lifting using squat and stoop techniques.
Local thigh and low back perceived exertion (RPE), sagittal peak load moments, and leg and trunk muscular activity during repetitive submaximal lifting, with squat and stoop technique, were investigated.
This study analyzed changes in kinetic variables caused by changes in body movements during the lifting bouts, and the contribution of the biomechanical and physiologic variables to the variability in the local RPE responses.
Summary of background Data
Despite instructions that emphasize the « correct » lifting technique as the squat technique, the stoop technique is reported as more commonly used in practice.
