By Thomas Reilly, Greg Atkinson

Understanding the ‘human operator’ is a primary problem of either ergonomists and game and workout scientists. This state of the art selection of overseas learn papers explores the interface among actual, cognitive and occupational ergonomics and activity and workout technology, illuminating our realizing of ‘human components’ at paintings and at play. Drawing on a large range of disciplines, together with utilized anatomy, biomechanics, body structure, engineering, psychology and layout, the booklet explores issues of principal significance inside of modern ergonomics and game and workout technological know-how, equivalent to functionality, overall healthiness, atmosphere, know-how and specified populations. Contemporary activity, relaxation and Ergonomics establishes vital methodological connections among the disciplines, advancing the examine schedule inside of each one. it really is crucial interpreting for all critical ergonomists and human scientists.

To develop a first draft of the retrospective self-assessment questionnaire and to add value to its content validity, an extensive, qualitative literature review was performed on definitions, classifications, characteristics and (general and sportspecific) risk factors of LBP. For the anatomical definition of LBP, the definition of Haanen (1984) was employed: “All sorts of pain in the region of the lumbar spine, the os sacrum and the M. e. e. coccyx) and from the lateral part of the M. erector spinae to the spina illiaca posterior superior; the centre of this area is formed by the 4th lumbar vertebra” (Haanen, 1984).

E. frequency, mean ± SD) were used to calculate demographic characteristics, prevalence rates and characteristics of LBP in scuba divers. To estimate significant 22 Contemporary Sport, Leisure and Ergonomics differences in general and sport-specific characteristics between scuba divers with and without LBP, a Chi² (Ȥ²) test for nominal data, a Mann-Whitney U-test for ordinal data and an independent t-test for normally distributed interval and/or ratio data, were computed. Distributions were checked for normality with a OneSample-Kolmogorov-Smirnov Test.
