Biomechanical analysis is the formal process of using knowledge of the work environment along with the design of the human body to fully integrate the two systems. Biomechanics considers working people as a special type of machine that performs tasks along with other machines. Humans can only function productively within the limits of their strength, flexibility and endurance. The goal of biomechanics is to ensure that the work environment is properly tailored to the needs and abilities of individual workers. Biomechanical analysis is often used in factory settings.
