    8 Fatigue and Health and Wellness. This chapter begins by describing what is known about the linkages between fatigue and health. Following a brief summary of the medical certification of the health of commercial motor vehicle (CMV) drivers, the discussion turns to a medical condition that has been the subject of a great deal of attention with respect to the health of CMV drivers and the. The relationship between the vibration transmissibility and driving-point response functions (DPRFs) of the human body is important for understanding vibration exposures of the system and for developing valid models. The combined mechanical loads and vibration exposures are among the major File Type: [PDF - MB] The relationships.

U.S. Department of Health, Education and Welfare (DHEW) of the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH). Publication No. [30]. AbstractLaboratory studies have shown that exposure to whole-body vibration (WBV) increases physical and mental fatigue, which are common issues professional drivers face.

The objective of this study was to determine whether altering WBV exposures had any effect on driver vigilance and discomfort. A repeated measures crossover design of five truck drivers with regular h routes was.

The graph below shows the typical relationship between displacement, velocity and acceleration for a sinusoidal (single frequency) vibration. Note that displacement amplitudes decrease to very small amplitudes above about Hz. For that reason, seismic displacement measurements are rarely used for machine condition monitoring.

Problems in your vehicle's suspension can cause the truck to vibrate. Broken or weak shocks, tie rods, wheel bearings and other components will make your truck's weight distribute unevenly and cause a vibration.

Vibration problems will commonly be caused by the suspension in your truck's front end rather than the rear.

High prevalence of back pain, early degenerative changes of the spine and herniated lumbar disc problems have been consistently reported among vibration exposed occupational groups: tractor drivers, truckers and interstate bus drivers, crane or earth.

Bus drivers are daily exposed to whole-body vibrations (WBV) submitted to risks for develop health problems related to these conditions. Numerous studies focused to quantify and identify the risks that drivers are exposed have been developed in recent years. Many factors influence the transmission of vibration to the body.

Whole- body vibration, occupational exposure, bus, drivers. INTRODUCTION. The vibration environment is a common man- made artificial surrounding with which most humans have to deal.

However, professionals such as occupational drivers do it on a daily basis. It seems that humans have a limited tolerance to cope with whole - body vibration (WBV). The purpose of this study was to characterize whole-body vibration (WBV) exposure from various all-terrain vehicles (ATVs) like snowgroomers, snowmobiles and forwarders, and to investigate how.

“Whole body vibration” is the term researchers use for the motion caused by a truck traveling over a rough surface, vibration transmitted up from the road through the seat to the driver.

It can cause sore lower backs, as well as pain in the neck, arms and legs. If the pain is bad enough, it can limit or cut short a driver’s career. Among all the musculoskeletal outcomes, LBP was the most prevalent (%) with average LBP score of (SD: ).

The SF health scores demonstrated that truck drivers in general had lower physical health status than the general US population (P's. In most work situations the magnitude and duration of vibration exceeded the 8 h fatigue-decreased proficiency boundary of m s −2 in the vertical axis, which indicates that in many working situations with a daily exposure of 8 h or more suspended seats will not protect professional drivers from harmful exposure to whole-body vibration.

They have to be, to single-handedly control an 80, pound vehicle for 11 hours at a time on limited sleep. To stay safe and stand up for themselves in shady situations at truck stops.

To muscle a truck. Whole-body vibration (WBV) is another potential factor that may contribute to driver fatigue, but it has received little attention. Beginning in JanuaryBose Corporation and AIG commissioned the RAND Corporation to study the link between WBV and driver fatigue.

Exposure to whole body vibration (WBV) is known to be associated with various adverse health outcomes among professional truck drivers.

As a part of a randomized controlled trial, this study evaluated WBV exposures and various health outcomes from 96 professional truck drivers. Griffin M.J., Whitham E.M. Discomfort produced by impulsive whole-body vibration. Journal of the Acoustical Society of America, 68 (5),pp.

To study these effects in the Laboratory, the WBV team at NIOSH has designed and developed a new vibration system.
