This software determines acceptable loads for lifting and lowering and was developed to integrate:

  • Biomechanical modeling of lumbar compression forces
  • Liberty Mutual Tables
  • Metabolic cost
  • Epidemiological research.
  • Corrections can be made for percent capable, duration, frequency, load asymmetry and coupling
  • BakPakTM integrates all the information and decides on the acceptable load based on the most appropriate criterion, or criteria, to base the limit.
