HPW is a professional, scientific and engineering group that can provide a wide range of consulting services in the area of human performance. Human Performance integrates the laws of physics and working concepts of engineering (Biomechanics) with structural and functional human anatomy, physiology and neuro-muscular function (Human Factors) to describe the effects of forces on the human body and to better understand the mechanical and behavioral interactions between people and their environments. Specific applications include accident analysis and reconstruction, injury prevention, equipment design and evaluation and performance analysis. Click here to learn more...
