Ergonomics 3D Static Strength Prediction Program (3DSSPP)


The Center for Ergonomics at the University of Michigan College of Engineering has developed programs for analyzing manual materials-handling tasks. These programs are in use at over 2000 U.S. and international sites by ergonomists, engineers, loss-control specialists, physical and occupational therapists, researchers, and others who evaluate and design jobs.

3D SSPP software predicts static strength requirements for tasks such as lifts, presses, pushes, and pulls. The program provides an approximate job simulation that includes posture data, force parameters and male/ female anthropometry.
