Operator's Reaction Time Prolongation Induced by Whole-Body Vibration

Abstract

Influence of whole-body vibration on reaction times was studied on a specially developed rig, with the subjects being exposed to no vibration, and vibration frequencies of 1, 5, 20 and 50 Hz. The shortest reaction times for both, sound and visual stimuli were measured for no vibration of the seating platform. The most detrimental influence was observed at… (More)
