Whole Body Vibration Assessment Services (WBV Assessments)
What is WBV and what are its affects?
Machinery that vibrates transmits this vibration through the body causing internal organs to vibrate. These induced vibrations can result in serious health disorders such as lower back pain or spinal problems.
Whole Body Vibration (WBV) is a widespread recognised industrial problem affecting many workers in many industries, but particularly in construction, agriculture, forestry, and transport.
WBV is transmitted through the seat or feet, and the harmful levels of the vibration can either be directly or indirectly connected to many health problems with the nervous system, the circulatory system, and the digestive system, and can also cause degenerative changes to the spine.
