This important new volume brings together recent research by leading international ergonomists and sport and exercise scientists. The book presents a wide range of studies in occupational ergonomics, each utilizing techniques that are also employed by sports and exercise science research groups, and therefore breaks new ground in the interface between sport and industry. Arranged into sections examining environment, special populations, human factors interface, sports technology and occupational health, this book will be an essential purchase for all those involved in sports science or ergonomics research.
