Om Measuring Slipperiness: Human Locomotion
Worldwide, falls represent the third leading cause of disability after the systemic conditions of depression and anemia. Measuring Slipperiness presents expert group perspectives on human-centered and surface-centered aspects and approaches. This internationally contributed volume also addresses the injury burden of slipperiness, globally reviews existing slipmeters, and summarizes areas of consensus in the field of slipperiness measurement. Students, professionals, and researchers in ergonomics, health and safety, gait biomechanics, human locomotion, and wear and lubrication sciences will find it a valuable, state-of-the-art reference.
