Defying geometric similarity: Shape centralization in male UK offshore workers.
MetadataShow full item record
AbstractApplying geometric similarity predictions of body dimensions to specific occupational groups has the potential to reveal useful ergonomic and health implications. This study assessed a representative sample of the male UK offshore workforce, and examined how body dimensions from sites typifying musculoskeletal development or fat accumulation, differed from predicted values.
