The research focus is on hand and arm biomechanics and the design of workplace tools and tasks in order to improve productivity and the quality of work while preventing upper extremity fatigue and injury. The lab has studied designs of tablets, gesture interfaces, keyboards, mice, pipettors, touch screens, dental tools, construction drills, chairs, and agricultural tools. Funding is primarily from NIH and CDC but also from Hewlett-Packard, Microsoft, BART, Logitech, and Herman-Miller.
