Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Surgery
  • Statistics
  • Physical therapy

William S. Marras focuses on Electromyography, Physical therapy, Physical medicine and rehabilitation, Biomechanics and Low back pain. William S. Marras has included themes like Isometric exercise and Anatomy, Muscle contraction in his Electromyography study. William S. Marras combines subjects such as Motion, Human factors and ergonomics and Low back disorder with his study of Physical therapy.

His study in Physical medicine and rehabilitation is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Range of motion, Weight-bearing, Surgery and Low back. His work carried out in the field of Biomechanics brings together such families of science as Structural engineering, Lumbar spine, Kinematics and Rachis. His studies in Low back pain integrate themes in fields like Psychosocial, Lumbar, Sagittal plane and Personality.

His most cited work include:

  • The role of dynamic three-dimensional trunk motion in occupationally-related low back disorders. The effects of workplace factors, trunk position, and trunk motion characteristics on risk of injury. (722 citations)
  • Biomechanical risk factors for occupationally related low back disorders (527 citations)
  • A strategy for human factors/ergonomics: developing the discipline and profession (456 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Physical medicine and rehabilitation, Physical therapy, Low back pain, Simulation and Electromyography. His Physical medicine and rehabilitation research integrates issues from Kinematics, Wrist, Low back, Work and Lumbar spine. His Physical therapy research includes themes of Low back disorder, Psychosocial, Biomechanics, Human factors and ergonomics and Back pain.

His Low back pain study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Range of motion, Motion and Sagittal plane. His Simulation research incorporates elements of Lift and Structural engineering. William S. Marras focuses mostly in the field of Electromyography, narrowing it down to topics relating to Anatomy and, in certain cases, Trunk muscle.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Physical medicine and rehabilitation (27.31%)
  • Physical therapy (25.38%)
  • Low back pain (18.49%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2010-2021)?

  • Physical medicine and rehabilitation (27.31%)
  • Lumbar spine (9.03%)
  • Low back pain (18.49%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

William S. Marras spends much of his time researching Physical medicine and rehabilitation, Lumbar spine, Low back pain, Physical therapy and Electromyography. His Physical medicine and rehabilitation study also includes fields such as

  • Work which is related to area like Biomechanics,
  • Simulation together with Entire lumbar spine and Musculoskeletal disorder. His Lumbar spine study incorporates themes from Torso, Lumbar, Lumbar vertebrae, Anatomy and Biomechanical model.

His work in Low back pain covers topics such as Psychosocial which are related to areas like Workload. Many of his studies on Physical therapy involve topics that are commonly interrelated, such as Prospective cohort study. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Cervical spine and Biceps.

Between 2010 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • A strategy for human factors/ergonomics: developing the discipline and profession (456 citations)
  • Tolerance of the lumbar spine to shear: a review and recommended exposure limits. (77 citations)
  • Effects of postural and visual stressors on myofascial trigger point development and motor unit rotation during computer work (46 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Surgery
  • Statistics
  • Mechanical engineering

Physical medicine and rehabilitation, Low back pain, Physical therapy, Lumbar spine and Electromyography are his primary areas of study. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Work, Low back, Musculoskeletal disorder and Activities of daily living. His Low back pain research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Psychosocial, Workload, Epidemiology and Gerontology.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Multivariate analysis and Injury prevention in addition to Physical therapy. His Lumbar spine research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Trunk muscle, Torso, Anatomy, Lumbar vertebrae and Weight-bearing. His Electromyography research includes elements of Biceps, Simulation and Sitting.
