About this title


Biomechanics has been developed to consider the mechanics and the range of human movements. Storage places in the house are the most important places for every workstation where required items for work performance are stored.Limited space available for human beings leads to the alteration of behavioral patterns and attitudes of the users of the space and eventually causes stress and strain. Adequate and well designed houses not only protect people against health hazards but also help to promote good health, economic productivity, psychological well being and social vigor. Desirable sequence of work cannot be maintained without the provision of adequate storage spaces. Due to faulty storage structure in the house many homemakers suffers from various types of biomechanical problems such as curved back, hunched shoulders and distorted legs and feet. The major causative factors responsible for biomechanical pain are the static muscular effort and unnatural body postures made by women while using the faulty storage structure.
