What are the 3 principles to body mechanics?
Proper body mechanics are vital for prevention of injury and disability.3 principles to body mechanics are :
- Maintaining proper spinal alignment .
- Widen Base of Support and Center of Gravity.
- Good Lifting Technique.
Both mechanical engineering and civil engineering basically deal with mechanics - studies of forces and their effects over a stationary body or a body in motion. Mechanical engineers, as the name suggests, use principles of mechanics as well as thermodynamics to design machines like steam engines, petrol engines, diesel engines, boilers, etc. Whereas a civil engineer uses principles of mechanics as well as the knowledge of properties of materials to design buildings, dams, bridges, harbors…
