Push-Pull Study: Current Guidelines Don’t Reflect How People Use Carts In Real-Life Situations

Caster Connection collaborated with the Spine Research Institute at The Ohio State University, in conjunction with the National Science Foundation (NSF) Industry/University Cooperative Research Center, discovering the importance of replicating authentic movement for injury prevention in push/pull testing. 

According the study's summary, the results reveal that many practitioners are more than likely putting workers at risk for a lower back injury because of non-real-world measurements.

Caster Connection collaborated with the Spine Research Institute at The Ohio State University, in conjunction with the National Science Foundation (NSF) Industry/University Cooperative Research Center, who together, discovered the importance of replicating authentic movement for injury prevention in push/pull testing.

Highlights from the study, noted in a downloadable infographic, include:

  • In order to be accurate for real-life situations, acceleration in testing should be much higher than ISO guidelines advise
  • Workers are injuring themselves more quickly than guidelines suggest and before they even realize it
  • Current guidelines do not reflect how people are using carts in real-life situations
  • The force required to push a cart differs from the force required to pull a cart and people don’t typically test pulling

Early findings:
