Santos Lite is a Windows-based program that was created to provide a valuable set of predictive digital human modeling capabilities at a budget-friendly price. It currently includes access to the world's most accurate and highly validated method of predicting exposure to risk of injury for manual material handling tasks. Its customizable predictive capabilities allow kinesiology and ergonomics practitioners to conduct critical human-centric evaluations quickly, including determining the percentage of the population capable of performing a task relative to duty cycle.

"We are honored that Prof. Fischer, one of our most active Santos® University Partners, has taken the initiative to develop and lead this hands-on Santos Lite workshop," said Steve Beck, President & CEO of SantosHuman, Inc. "The primary reason we created Santos Lite was to ensure these much-needed capabilities were available to ergonomics professionals and educators. Professor Fischer's workshop at this conference not only validates our efforts, but provides an excellent opportunity for others in his profession to see how easily our virtual human-in-the-loop solutions can estimate exposure to risk of injury for work tasks."

Upon completion of the workshop, attendees will receive a code to access Santos Lite for one year at a significant discount that is exclusive to this event.
