The ability of UK offshore workers of different body size and shape to egress through a restricted window space. (2015)
Journal Article
STEWART, A., LEDINGHAM, R., FURNACE, G., SCHRANZ, N. and NEVILL, A. 2016. The ability of UK offshore workers of different body size and shape to egress through a restricted window space. Applied ergonomics [online], 55, pages 226-233. Available from: https://doi.org/10.1016/j.apergo.2015.11.005

404 male offshore workers aged 41.4 (± 10.7 years) underwent 3D body scanning and an egress task simulating the smallest helicopter window emergency exit size. The 198 who failed were older (P < 0.01), taller (P < 0.05) and heavier (P < 0.0001) than...

Diabetes, metabolic syndrome and obesity: targets and therapy [online], 8, pages 495-503. Available from: https://doi.org/10.2147/DMSO.S85134

Background: Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) affects between 2% and 26% of reproductive-age women in the UK, and accounts for up to 75% of anovulatory infertility. The major symptoms include ovarian disruption, hyperandrogenism, insulin resistance, a...

Body size and ability to pass through a restricted space: observations from 3D scanning of 210 male UK offshore workers. (2015)
Journal Article
STEWART, A., LEDINGHAM, R., FURNACE, G. and NEVILL, A. 2015. Body size and ability to pass through a restricted space: observations from 3D scanning of 210 male UK offshore workers. Applied ergonomics [online], 51, pages 358-362. Available from: https://doi.org/10.1016/j.apergo.2015.06.017

Offshore workers are subjected to a unique physical and cultural environment which has the ability to affect their size and shape. Because they are heavier than the UK adult population we hypothesized they would have larger torso dimensions which wou...
