  • Description

    RESEARCH SCIENTISTS AT THE LOUGHBOROUGH UNIVERSITY IN ENGLAND HAVE USED A CHAMPIONSHIP BRITISH WEIGHTLIFTER IN AN OVERALL ASSESSMENT OF THE ERGONOMICS OF LIFTING HEAVY WEIGHTS.

    LOUIS MARTIN, WHO ONE OF BRITAIN'S HOPES FOR AN OLYMPIC GOLD MEDAL AT THE MEXICO GAMES IN OCTOBER, SPENT MOST OF TODAY (SATURDAY) IN THE UNIVERSITY'S LABORATORIES, WHILE STAFF WORKERS ATTACHED ELECTRODES TO HIS BODY. THE WEIGHTLIFTER'S SKIN WAS FIRST SLIGHTLY PIERCED AND ELECTRODE JELLY INSERTED INTO THE PUNCTURE.

    THEN HE PERFORMED SEVERAL WEIGHTLIFTING FEATS, WITH THE ELECTRICAL APPARATUS ATTACHED TO HIS BODY. COMPTETITIVE WEIGHTLIFTERS DEMONSTRATE CONSIDERABLE SKILL AND A GREAT UNDERSTANDING OF THEIR ACTIVITIES CAN GAIN KNOWLEDGE TO BE APPLIED IN THE TEACHING OF INDUSTRIAL AND AGRICULTURAL LOAD HANDLING.
