Evaluate the physical demands of a job to reduce the risk of injuries

The 3D Static Strength Prediction Program™ (3D SSPP) software predicts static strength requirements for material handling tasks.

3D SSPP Software


3D SSPP software predicts the level of exertion required for common tasks in the workspace design phase, allowing users to incorporate that data into process and comply with National Institute of Occupational Health & Safety (NIOSH) guidelines.


Output consists of ten reports that include predicted low-back compression forces and the percentage of the population that have the strength to perform a prescribed job. Users can analyze torso twists and bends and make complex hand force entries.


Based on 50+ years of research by University of Michigan’s Center for Ergonomics, and licensed by thousands, 3D SSPP continues to be one of the most impactful software programs in the field of ergonomics, impacting job design throughout the world.

How It Works

The 3D Static Strength Prediction Program™ (3D SSPP) software allows you to predict static strength requirements for common manual tasks and make rapid, simple improvements to ergonomic conditions that improve the safety, productivity, and quality of life of your employees. The program provides an approximate job simulation that includes posture data, force parameters and male/female anthropometry.
