It is a long way – and a lot of science – from a Brock laboratory to the store shelf at Mark’s Work Wearhouse.
Stephen Cheung, professor of Kinesiology and Canada Research Chair in Environmental Ergonomics, can attest to that.
Cheung and his associates are testing new clothing materials for Mark’s Work Wearhouse under a $25,000 Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) Engage grant. The goal of the research is to better understand the insulation and moisture management of different clothes during actual use in the cold. Much of the research takes place in Cheung’s unique environmental ergonomics lab at Brock.
