Brian Grieser Measures Impact Forces On The Lumbar Spine During Daily Activities

Brian GrieserSenior consultant Brian Grieser presented at the annual conference of the International Society for Occupational Ergonomics & Safety. Mr. Grieser and Dr. Helen Fuller measured the impact or shock loading to the lower back  during 10 activities of daily living, such as walking,  dropping into chairs, and riding over speed bumps. Measuring impact loading from these common benign activities provides a basis for evaluating loading experienced during specific work activities, exposure to whole body vibration, and the potential to cause injury. Mr. Grieser is ASE’s Director of Technology and Instrumentation. His areas of expertise include human vibration and biomechanics testing and analysis, and assessing the slip resistance of walking surfaces. For more information on the study, or for other inquiries, please contact Mr. Grieser.
