Abstract

Background: Whole body vibration (WBV) exposure has a significant influence on humans’ comfort, health and performance.

Objective: The aim of this study is to evaluate the WBV exposure value experienced by the motorcyclist under different road profiles and speeds. Results: Research findings showed there are significant differences of the vibration exposed on the motorcyclist under different road profiles and different speeds.

Conclusion: The VDV exposure is higher when riding at the higher speed and on the paved road. The necessary preventives measures and actions should be taken by the motorcyclists to prevent the vibration exposure risk to their health.
