Lumbar ProSoft

Lumbar ProSoft 2.0 is Windows compatible (NT, W2000, XP) software for the older LMM (Lumbar Motion Monitor) previously sold by Chattanooga Group, Inc. (NOTE: Prosoft will not read files created from Chattanooga DOS or Chattanooga Windows Beta software.)

The LMM has numerous applications in industrial ergonomics and in clinical settings. The LMM breaks the work into individual job tasks for analysis of the specific range of motion, velocity and acceleration moments on the lumbar spine. The LMM allows you to compare the task to a normative database of common variables associated with jobs that have a high incidence of low back disorders. These comparisons, combined with the data from the job site assessment, allows you to recommend ergonomic changes.

The latest version is fully compatible with the Lumbar Motion Monitor developed by Dr. William Marras of Ohio State and follows years of extensive research and development. Lumbar ProSoft is much easier to use and includes new features such as assessments based upon the 1981 and 1991 NIOSH lifting guides and Snook psychophysical tables as well as a new Task Manager.
