Prediction of Occupational Physical Activities using Inertial Measurement Units and Deep Learning Models

Machine learning models are applied to intertial measurement unit (IMU) data to predict occupational physical activities to provide a more reliable, informative and cost-effective approach to quantifying the physical demands of a job. 

Poultry Line Speed Evaluation (PULSE) Study 

In conjunction with the USDA FSIS, this study seeks to determine possible health effects to establishment workers of increased evisceration line speeds in young chicken processing plants, including ergonomic hazards in the workplace, measurement of biomechanical risk factors for acute and cumulative work-related musculoskeletal disorders (WRMSDs), medical management, and respiratory hazards from antimicrobial use.
