      Hey Ken,
      The only data that I know of is obtained by measuring the pulling force of a rescuer by mans of a load cell. The number given Was the calculated average in a study performed. This will of course vary based on the strength of the rescuer(s) pulling. I feel safe saying that using this technique as a means of estimating the total input force applied is reliable.
      Mike
