Rapid Upper Limb Assessment among Malaysian Multi-Purpose Vehicle’s Driver
Current Journal of Applied Science and Technology, Volume 42, Issue 5,
Conditions of comfort driving may be perceived differently by drivers with different physical built or gender where right sitting position plays a big element in maintaining body health. Therefore, the objective of this paper is to analyze anthropometric data of Multi-Purpose Vehicle’s (MPV) driver using Rapid Upper Limb Assessment (RULA) technique. RULA was performed on various MPVs seats. The outcome of this study indicated that seating posture among the Malaysian MPVs driver are not fully fit into the MPVs driver’s seat and required further investigation. This outcome suggested for further advanced research be conduct in the future.
