Occupational Biomechanics and Ergonomics Lab (OBEL)
The Occupational Biomechanics and Ergonomics Lab (OBEL) at the University of Waterloo is a nexus for research to optimize human performance in the workplace. OBEL is committed to research that leads to the development and commercialization of tools that can measure, assess, evaluate, classify, predict and ultimately improve occupational performance.
With a strong emphasis on use-inspired, actionable research, OBEL has quickly emerged as a leading ergonomics-focussed research and development program, generating actionable ideas, programs and devices to help optimize the performance of those working in high demand professions like paramedicine and the Royal Canadian Air Force.
