Abstract

A two dimensional, multi-link sagittally symmetric whole-body model was developed to simulate an optimal trajectory for manual material lifting. Non-linear optimal control techniques and genetic algorithms were utilized in the simulations to explore practical lifting patterns. The simulation results were then compared with the experimental data.
