Abstract: “There is a strong belief that stoop lifting is ‘bad’ and squat lifting is ‘good’.” In this paper we research a combined motion: lifting and putting a beer crate into a car trunk. This real life task was chosen in the biosignal analysis course at the Brandenburg University of Applied Sciences. We started with the hypothesis that ‘the squat lifting technique is more ergonomic, healthy and less exhausting’. Our study was scheduled for one semester including the experiments and a first preliminary analysis of the data to prove or disprove three partial hypotheses. Four male and four female untrained subjects were involved in the experimental part of the study. Physiological parameters like the heart and the respiration rate, the activity of various muscles as well as the motion of the whole body were measured. Questionnaires were developed and carried out before, immediately after and one week after the experiment to acquire information about the fitness of the subjects and the effects of the exercises on their state of wellness and health. First conclusions result in no clear preference for one lifting technique. (More)
