Topic: The Benefits of Leveraging Virtual Reality Tools to Posture and Assess tasks with a Digital Human Model (DHM)
Summary: Ergonomic practitioners regularly use DHM software to posture and assess tasks for ergonomic hazards. These DHM software can be time-consuming to manually position the manikins in specific postures, especially when working with multiple humans of varying anthropometry. Using case studies, we will present a novel approach to posturing humans using Virtual Reality (VR) technology, and provide an example of how this approach is providing value in industry. This approach has potential to dramatically reduce the time spent posturing digital manikins, and also gives the user an excellent first person understanding of the constraints that the manikin may encounter in the working environment.
