Abstract in different language: The Manual Material Handling (MMH) of loads is considered worldwide one of the main components in musculoskeletal disorders in various industries, which also carries a high cost. Prior research has shown that there are limited studies comparing different bodily characteristics for both genders during MMH and that individuals severely obese are in greater risk than normal weight individuals when performing a MMH task. A total of 37 subjects were assessed for this study, each subject signed an informed consent form and anthropometric measures were taken in addition to age, weight, and height, using a skinfold caliper. Table 1 summarizes the somatotype (endomorph: soft round body type,mesomorph: athletic body type) data according to each gender, based on Heath-Carter formula.
