Abstract

Back injuries are the most common type of work injuries in the U.S. today (Bereau of Labor Statistics, 2013). These injuries can occur when excessive force is applied to the back during lifting with poor posture. This study focuses on the detection of lower body posture to assist workers in the prevention of posture related injuries by integrating stitched stretch sensors into a commonly worn type of personal protective equipment (PPE), disposable coveralls.
