3D SSPP software predicts the level of exertion required for common tasks early in the workspace design phase, allowing users to incorporate that data into their design process and fully 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.
