|SoftwareSowaSowa - Subjective Overall Workload Assessment. The subjective workload evaluation includes four fundamental dimensions: (1) Manual material handling, (2) Material work environment, (3) Body posture and movement, (4) Mental demand. Each of these dimensions is characterised by several attributes. SOWA takes into into account physical activity outside work, specifies relative importances of work dimensions, computes consistency of the obtained results, allows for comprehensive pain ailments evaluation, automatically generates and prints out questionnaires exports the results to Microsoft Excel|
ApolinexApolinex - Digital Human Modeling. The software system devoted to ergonomics modeling and design in the AutoCAD environment. The system's uses anthropometric mannequins, models vision capabilities, and allows for biomechanical analysis of the workload. The three-dimensional mannequin (model) is available inside an AutoCAD at any given time of the design process. Apolinex also generates the manikin's field of view. Apolinex has also the ability to calculate joint moments for specific body segments to assess the biomechanical workload.
