BACKGROUND Low frequency linear (translational) oscillation is an important stimulus in provoking motion sickness in a variety of modes of transport. HYPOTHESIS Lower frequencies of horizontal linear oscillation would be more nauseogenic. The somatogravic illusion (SGI) would be affected by frequency. METHODS Subjects (n = 12) were exposed to horizontal sinusoidal motion (3.6 m.s-2 peak) at three different frequencies (0.205 Hz, 0.350 Hz, 0.500 Hz) at one week intervals, with order… CONTINUE READING
