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.
