Inexplicable differences in the level of whole-body vibration values for commercial vehicles from the former GDR and the values for comparable West German vehicles. Goal: determining the cause of these differences
Comparative measurements using BIA-measurement technology for GDR vehicles under typical GDR road surface conditions
The results of both measuring processes (seat vibration) correspond with one another within the expected scale of accuracy; they correspond sufficiently with the mean values contained in the vibration database. Extreme values of uncertain origin should not be included in the catalogue.

Vibration, Arbeitsmittel, BerufskrankheitDescription, key words:
Two different systems for the measurement of whole-body vibration in the driver seats of commercial vehicles should result in a standard assessment of the health risks.
