1. Change in twisted trunk postures by the use of saddle seats - a conceptual study.

The seated, twisted trunk posture when driving an agricultural tractor is a risk factor for low-back pain. Beside new cab designs, there is still a need for an ergonomic tool that can easily be mounted on existing tractors. This investigation was initiated as one link towards such a tool. The...
