Description

Recent research by Bond University’s Tactical Research Unit has revealed and re-informed the negative impacts of carrying heavy external loads for extended periods during high-intensity military tasks. Impacts of load on soldier ergonomics translate from an increased risk of injury to reduced tactical performance. Second-order effects extend to future soldier injuries, associated medical costs and increased load exposures to other soldiers.
