Johanna Keiner's research investigates ergonomic design parameters for seat functions fitting the functional anatomy and physiological needs for long term sitting perfomance while driving. Unknown parameters are individual moving patterns during long term driving sessions.
The study design is set up to look at individual moving patterns during long term driving periods. In a naturalistic driving study with three professional truck drivers, the probands are monitored with real time data recording during their daily driving performance.
Data sets are interface pressure distribution on the seat cushion and subcutaneous tissue oxygenation at the lower lumbar area.
