Manual material handling tasks at supermarket stores is a very common activity and it is associated with the development of work-related musculoskeletal disorders. This presentation will show how on-site data recordings can be used together with the AnyBody Modeling System to assess the benefits of a passive upper extremity exoskeleton as a protective device. Additionally, it will provide an interesting computational parameter approach to investigate how to adjust an exoskeleton to fit a specific task.
