Abstract

This study was conducted to evaluate impulses in muscles during washing using top-loader type of washing machine and to predict the risk of musculoskeletal disorders. Experimental and virtual three-dimensional motion analyses were performed repeatedly with six healthy females using a top-loader type of washing machine at different entrance heights and drum depths. We calculated impulses of muscles from the motion data. Impulses of the latissimus dorsi and erector spinae muscles were the highest of those in the muscles.
