The effects of stress may be alleviated when its impact or a decreased stress-resilience are detected early. This study explores whether wearable-measured sleep and resting HRV in police officers can be predicted by stress-related Ecological Momentary Assessment (EMA) measures in preceding days and predict stress-related EMA outcomes in...

Background & aims: Plasma citrulline concentration is considered to be a marker for enterocyte metabolic mass and to reflect its reduction as may occur during intestinal dysfunction. Strenuous exercise can act as a stressor to induce small intestinal injury. Our previous studies suggest that this comprises the intestinal ability to produce...

OBJECTIVE: The discomfort caused by rectal probes and esophageal probes for the estimation of body core temperature has triggered the development of gastrointestinal (GI) capsules that are easily accepted by athletes and workers due to their non-invasive characteristics. We compare two new GI capsule devices with rectal temperature during cycle...

New technologies have led to an increasingly sedentary lifestyle. Sedentary behaviour is characterised by physical inactivity and is associated with several health risks. This excessive sitting does not only take place in the office or at home, but also during daily commute. Therefore, BMW AG developed an active seating system for the back seat...

The purpose of this paper is to show that the conjunction of participatory ergonomics and outside consulting can be the link among professionals from different areas. This association can result in improvements in the workplace as well as in the production process. Employing participatory ergonomics, an intervention described in the present...

One of today's major challenges in manufacturing industries is the maximization of flexibility. One aspect of flexibility concerns the ability to deal with the fluctuations in the volume demand. Many companies are exposed to relatively short periods of times (about one or two months), where volume demands are significantly higher compared to the...

The proper understanding of the cardiovascular mechanisms involved in complaints of short-lasting dizziness and the evaluation of unexplained recurrent syncope requires continuous monitoring of cardiac stroke volume (SV) in addition to blood pressure and heart rate. The primary aim of the present study was to evaluate a pulse wave analysis...

The endogenous circadian oscillator (the body clock) is slow to adjust to altered rest-activity patterns. As a result, several negative consequences arise during night work and after time-zone transitions. The process of adjustment can be assessed by measurements of the sleep electroencephalogram (EEG), core temperature or melatonin secretion,...

The requirements to maintain a positive pressure with respiratory protection during heavy exercise and the effects on ventilation and feelings of discomfort were investigated. Eight male subjects participated, using the respirator system during rest and exercise at about 80% of their individual maximum power. A blower was used at maximum and...

Objectives. This study evaluated the effects on work-related neck and upper-limb disorders among computer workers stimulated (by a software program) to take regular breaks and perform physical exercises. Possible effects on sick leave and productivity were studied as well. Methods. A randomized controlled design was used with cluster...

In previous studies on physical fatigue during simulated ship movements, the apparent exhaustion of subjects after experimentation suggested that the traditional index of physical workload, oxygen consumption expressed as the percentage of peak oxygen consumption (VO2-peak) measured in a separate graded exercise test (GXT), underestimates...

In the current Dutch standard NEN 5905 and CUR Recommendation 38, four methods are listed for assessing the alkali-silica reactivity of concrete aggregates. However, procedures outlining how the tests should be performed, and the possible errors associated with such tests, are not given. This makes interpretation of results obtained by any of...

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...

Objective: To obtain predictors of weight maintenance after a weight-loss intervention. Research Methods and Procedures: An overall analysis of data from two-long intervention studies [n = 67 women; age: 37.9±1.0 years; body weight (BW): 87.0±1.2 kg; body mass index: 32.1±0.5 kg·m-2; % body fat: 42.4±0.5%].

Objective. To investigate the use of pain coping strategies by community-living older people with pain in the hip or knee and the mediating role of coping with pain in the relationship between the chronicity of pain and physical disability. Methods. A group of 157 people with pain 'in the last month' was identified. Coping with pain was assessed...

The sensitivity of physiological measures to mental workload has been investigated in a flight simulator. Twelve pilots had to fly through a tunnel with different levels of difficulty. Additionally, they had to perform a memory task with four levels of difficulty. The easiest memory task was combined with the easiest tunnel task and the most...

This communication aims to show why guidelines to prevent discomfort of static postures can be based on endurance data, and to give insight in the aim and scope of a recent 'work-rest model for static postures' (WR model). The paper is a response to a recent paper of Mathiassen and Winkel (1992) who questioned the usefulness of discomfort and...

A 'Work-Rest-model for static postures' (WR-model) has been developed to predict the course of 'Remaining Endurance Capacity'1 (REC) during static work and rest. To investigate the validity of this model 10 subjects performed a laboratory task with 4 different work-rest schedules with different levels of muscle effort (20% to 36% MVC). In...

This paper presents a portion of the results of a comprehensive analysis of the etiology of bus driver accidents. This portion of the analysis concentrates on two questions. First, does the sequences of various shifts influence accident risk on a given day? Various analyses led us to conclude that there was no interaction between the type of...
