dc.description.abstractBody mechanic checklist scores, thigh, trunk, and center of gravity displacement during a one person pivot transfer, and boosting up in bed were evaluated to determine the effectiveness of job specific training on the work performance of female student nurses from a local college. Thirty female S's participated in the study and were divided into a control group, an experimental group that received basic body mechanic training, and an experimental group that received job specific training. Results of the body mechanic checklist analysis indicated that the job specific training group demonstrated a statistically significant improvement in their body mechanic techniques compared to the other two groups. Results of the kinematic analysis found no significant differences in thigh and trunk displacement during the one person pivot transfer between the three groups. Results of the thigh, trunk, and horizontal center of gravity displacement during boosting a patient up in bed indicated that the job specific training group improved their body mechanic techniques compared to the other two groups.en
