Abstract(s)The shape and size of the human body is affected by the posture adopted in order to perform various activities. The human body is constantly changing and adapting to the movements executed in everyday life. As such, knowledge about the body changes that occur with the adoption of different postures is essential. Besides the obvious adverse health effects caused by spending long periods of time in certain postures, the adopted posture may influence people’s interaction even with the simplest items such as clothing. For all these reasons, being able to determine the anthropometric changes related to different work postures is very important to occupational ergonomics. The main objective of this paper is to identify and quantify the body changes that occur with each of the postures adopted.
