Last month Associate Professor and Chair, Jay Kapellusch, PhD, Department of Occupational Science and Technology, traveled to Beijing, China to give presentations in his area of expertise. He taught an advanced course on “Musculoskeletal Disease Prevention and Occupational Ergonomics.” The two-day course was organized by the China Preventive Medicine Association, Occupational Disease Professional Committee. It was designed to give occupational medicine physicians in China the essential knowledge needed to conduct high-quality studies of musculoskeletal disorders in workplaces.
A second workshop was held at the University of Chinese Academy of Sciences, and was part of the 14th International Conference of Graphic Technology and Applications of Image. The focus was on the usability of augmented-, mixed-, and virtual-reality technologies. Kapellusch talked about how to design for prevention of shoulder and arm fatigue.
