SEAT has the only in-company biomechanics lab in Spain aimed at occupational health20 cameras and various sensors capture the motions of workers to study joints and muscular activityVirtual reality makes it possible to design an assembly line even before production begins on a modelIn the past two years the rate of muscle injuries has decreased by 70%  How does it work?: “Technology enables us to recreate the assembly line in our lab facilities. It’s essential that the worker performing the test realistically reproduce the exact motions they would make on the job” explains Sonia García, who is responsible for Ergonomics at SEAT. They measure two…
