Intended learning outcomes

The aim of the Ergonomics course is to provide students with a set of knowledge and methodologies that allow them to understand the impact that good posture practices can have in a work environment as well as being able to design objects or equipment whose handling is studied to minimize injuries. The knowledge and methodologies are based on the theory of classical mechanics, experimental kinematic and dynamic measurement of movement and computational simulation as a tool to support clinical diagnosis, to the detection of nonconformities regarding postural comfort and the incidence of work injuries. The aim is to develop skills in qualitative and quantitative analysis of human movement, anthropometric characterization and static and / or dynamic analyses of systems in order to develop competencies in the area of ergonomics, applying the information obtained by the analyses and the regulatory norms of the application in question.
