Accident Reconstruction Expert Witness


Expert No. 4

His experience in applied ergonomics and research spans nearly 15 years. His work has involved ergonomics, biomechanics, human factors, functional capacity and physiological assessments. Much of his work has dealt with ergonomic risk assessment and functional capacity evaluations; he has developed numerous ergonomic educational products and training modules including development of ergonomic analysis software. He has developed motion analysis equipment as well as designed return-to-work programs for injured employees by utilizing biomechanics equipment and functional tasks to test return-to-work status. He has developed and implemented ergonomic programs for government employees through employee training, physical demand documentation and functional capacity evaluations, while developing programs which have involved such tasks as customer service, mail processing, material handling, manufacturing, and office ergonomics.
