Welcome to the Low Back Biomechanics
& Workplace Stress Lab Website

Established in 2001, our lab is located in the Department of Environmental Health at the University of Cincinnati.

We have developed a comprehensive research program focusing on understanding the interaction between physical and mental stress, particularly in the development of low back injuries. We are also working towards a more global approach of worker safety and health by integrating ergonomics, health, and safety as a combined approach. We use a three prong approach which utilizes laboratory, clinical and field studies to help us develop methods of improving worker safety and health.
