The document presents a development for detecting posture in the workplace and using it to assess the risk associated with tasks. This development was created at the Tecnológico de Monterrey in Mexico so that students can evaluate ergonomic postures. The system consists of a body assessment tool and a Microsoft Kinect V2, as the hardware in charge of collecting the information. Students use the results to identify postures that can cause damage to certain areas of the body and to make changes in the workplace as a measure to reduce risk.
