Rhodococcus sp. strain AD45 was isolated from an enrichment culture on isoprene (2-methyl-1,3-butadiene). Isoprene-grown cells of strain AD45 oxidized isoprene to 3,4-epoxy-3-methyl-1-butene, cis-1,2-dichloroethene to cis-1,2-dichloroepoxyethane, and trans-1,2-dichloroethene to trans-1,2- dichloroepoxyethane. Isoprene-grown cells also degraded...

In lifting, the abdominal muscles are thought to be activated to stabilize the spine. As a detrimental effect, they contribute to spinal compression. The existing literature is not conclusive about the biological relevance of this effect. From biological, mechanical and anatomical considerations it was hypothesised that the relative abdominal...

People who know the actual mass of an object to be lifted normally prepare themselves before attempting a lift to control the movement and to minimize low back loading. In this study, the trunk muscular reactions and low back torque were investigated in the situation in which the individual did not know the actual mass but only had some idea of...

In pushing and pulling wheeled carts, the direction of force exertion may, beside the force magnitude, considerably affect musculoskeletal loading. This paper describes how force direction changes as handle height and force level change, and the effects this has on the loads on the shoulder and low back. Eight subjects pushed against or pulled...

To study the mechanics of the neck during rear end impact, in this paper an existing global human body model and an existing detailed submodel of the neck were combined into a new model. The combined model is validated with responses of volunteers and post mortem human subjects (PMHSs) subjected to rear end impacts of resp 5g and 12g. The...

Endoscopic thoracic sympathectomy at T2-T4 is an effective and safe treatment for primary axillary and palmar hyperhidrosis and facial blushing refractory to conventional treatment. T2 and T4 ganglia however are in the direct pathway of sympathetic innervation of the heart and part of the vasomotor nerves. In this study we investigate possible...

Voor de glazenwasser die werkt met staande ladder, is een goede ladder zeer belangrijk. Hij loopt en werkt op en verplaatst de ladder veelvuldig. Er is veel discussie over ladders en de optimale sportafstand bij staande ladders. De meeste glazenwassers geven de voorkeur aan een sportafstand van 35 centimeter. De Arbeidsinspectie beveelt echter...

Manual materials handling on a moving platform, like a ship, might be a risk factor for the development of lowback pain due to the in.uence of accelerations on lowback loading. In the current simulation study, 3-D accelerations, measured on a frigate were applied to the kinematics of symmetrical and asymmetrical lifting movements and to a...

In dit onderzoek is het effect van voetplaatsing en lastomvang op de belasting van de lage rug onderzocht bij tien mannelijke proefpersonen tijdens het tillen met een hurk- of buktechniek. Deze techniek is ook nog vergeleken met een zelfgekozen tiltechniek en een hurktechniek waarbij de knieën tijdens de tilbeweging naar buiten worden geroteerd ...

The objective of the present study was to compare energetic workload, perceived exertion, perceived discomfort, safety, and mechanical load at lower limb joints among window cleaners during usage of extension ladders with 30 and 35 cm rung separation. Eleven healthy male professional window cleaners of short and tall stature participated in this...

This study investigated the effects of ship motion on peak spinal loading during lifting. All measurements were done on a ship at sea. In 1-min trials, which were repeated over a wide range of sailing conditions, subjects lifted an 18 kg box five times. Ship motion, whole body kinematics, ground reaction forces and electromyography were measured...

The purpose of this study was to determine whether objective electromyographical manifestations of muscle fatigue develop in the upper trapezius muscle in two assembly tasks involving contractions of different low-intensity levels (8% and 12% MVC) and whether these indications of fatigue are homogeneously distributed across different muscle...

This study was designed to determine whether trunk extensor fatigue occurs during low-level activity and whether this is associated with a drop in muscle tissue oxygenation. Electromyography (EMG) feedback was used to impose constant activity in a part of the trunk extensor muscles. We hypothesized that electromyographic manifestations of...

Much research has been performed on associations of physical exposures (e.g. lifting, trunk flexion or body vibrations) with low back pain (LBP). However, information on the effect of doses (e.g. spinal force or low back moments) on LBP is lacking. Cumulative low back load is significantly associated with the occurrence of LBP. Cumulative low...

This study aimed to develop, compare and validate two versions of a video analysis method for assessment of low back moments during occupational lifting tasks since for epidemiological studies and ergonomic practice relatively cheap and easily applicable methods to assess low back loads are needed. Ten healthy subjects participated in a protocol...

Work-related musculoskeletal pain (MSP) risk assessments by trained observers are often used in ergonomic practice; however, the validity may be questionable. We investigated the predictive value of work-site MSP risk estimates in a prospective cohort study of 1745 workers. Trained observers estimated the risk of MSP (neck, shoulder or low-back...
