Experimental studies on posture and load carriage in man

Abstract:

A study has been made of the skeletal muscular activity associated with maintaining the erect posture in Man, using twenty medical students as experimental subjects. The extent and nature of this muscular activity was assessed by the mechanical end-result it produced, using for this purpose a strain gauge accelerometer mounted on a freely-suspended and optimally-damped platform.
