Kee, Dohyung, Karwowski, Waldemar, metoxo The analysis was also used to determine how the orientation of the worker with respect to the sensor affected the results.

Evaluation ergonomoa work situations using the cube model approach. A more detailed analysis jetodo the incorrectly coded postures reveals that they correspond to postures recorded while the tracked subject was performing a movement that caused a change in the coding of the position of one body member. Furthermore, to determine if the worker is walking, the position of the hip 0 is measured at regular intervals of time.

Occupational medicine Oxford, England 55, —9. Output data were compared with the results provided by human observers, and were used to determine the influence of the worker’s position relative to the sensor. Inter-observer and intra-observer agreements in mstodo application of OWAS by human observers have been studied in other works De Bruijn et al.

Although we tried to keep duration and speed of the movements constant, the total length of the sequences was slightly different, varying between and seconds. Its value must be in the range [0,1]. OWAS has been applied to a wide range of industries Pinzke, To get the postural risk level it is necessary to classify the positions of the back, shoulders and legs. Validity and reliability of the Kinect within functional assessment activities: To identify the position of the back it is necessary to calculate erginomia angles of flexion, lateral bending and trunk rotation.


Work-related neck and upper limb musculoskeletal disorders. Is the maximum radius in meters that filtered positions are allowed to deviate from the data obtained.

Ergonomic methods for assessing exposure to risk factors for work-related musculoskeletal disorders. Therefore, each body posture is coded by four digits corresponding to the back, shoulders, legs and load in this order.

The software developed allows the operator to decide whether to use or discard the postures in which the position of a joint has ergonomla inferred. The evaluator selects the correct option less than 10 kg, between 10 and 20 kg or more than 20 kg at the appropriate time.

Preliminary results for human application.

These planes are calculated ergonoia each tracked posture. The use of low-cost range sensors like Microsoft’s Kinect could be useful in the collection of data at very high frequencies, but it is necessary to check the accuracy and reliability of the data collected.

If more than one sensor is used simultaneously their patterns interfere affecting posture detection “Natural User Interface for Kinect for Windows,” TUTB Newslettern. Musculoskeletal disorders and workplace ergonomis Comparison of ergonomic risk assessments in a repetitive high-risk sawmill occupation: They are also easy to use, do not require complex calibration processes and do not affect the work process.

Data filtering was necessary for the accurate determination of the positions of the body. This system is able to determine the distance of objects in the environment. The results obtained by human observers are compared with those obtained by the sensor.


The frontal plane is calculated as a vertical plane which passes through both hips 12 and Analysis of working postures in hammering tasks on building construction sites using the computerized OWAS method. Although multiple sensors covering different orientations can be used simultaneously this tends to decrease the accuracy of the system in detecting body positions. A tracked joint that is not visible to the camera is inferred by Kinect sensor.

Trunk rotation is measured by calculating the angle between the line joining the shoulders and that same line projected on the trunk plane. Another main drawback of the Kinect skeleton is in a very non-anthropometric kinematic model with variable limb lengths.

For this reason we decided not to record the same sequence of movements using several sensors with different orientations with respect to the worker. This process and the characteristics of the data collected by Kinect can be consulted in Henry et al.

The x, y, and z-axes are the axes of the depth sensor Figure 3. Click Figure to enlarge Figure 1:
