Nowadays, ergonomic evaluation of work can be done using Digital Human
Models (DHM). One advantage is to reduce the need for corrective
measures by supporting a more prospective ergonomic work design.
Although ergonomic models provide useful information for risk
assessment, single working tasks with minor changes in work place design
are difficult to evaluate. Instead, biomechanical models can analyze
single movements or body postures, taking internal forces in muscles and
joints into account. Therefore, the main goal of this work is to
establish an interface between a biomechanical human model (AnyBody) and
the “Editor for manual work activities” (ema) to enrich ergonomic
evaluation with biomechanical parameters. First results demonstrate that
the automatically generated movements of ema showed some specific
deviations relative to the subjects’ movements in experimental
conditions. Optimization of kinematic data in AnyBody is necessary to
ensure more physiological movements which are highly valuable for
ergonomic evaluation.
