Abstract
Objective: The purpose of this study is to review the hazards of whole body vibration(WBV) and prevent human injuriesdue to WBV. Background: Vibrations that shake the whole body in vehicles and vessels is WBV. Vibration at a specificfrequency, and intensity in the human body can act as a hazard. But, it has not yet done enough research about effects ofWBV. Method: We analyzed and reviewed occupational or ergonomic papers published past 30 years. Results: Exposureto whole body vibration can cause permanent physical injury or damage of the nervous system. In addition, it may causeproblem in the cardiovascular system, digestive system, musculoskeletal system, endocrine system, reproductive system, andpsychological system. The effect of vibration depends on its acceleration, duration, frequency, and direction. Conclusion:WBV-exposed human body experience a high risk of some illnesses such as lumbar spinal disorders. Some workers(busdrivers, truck drivers and heavy equipment operators) are the high risk population exposed to WBV. Application: The resultsof this study might help to judge and prevent occupational disease caused by WBV.
