It is estimated that in the US alone, more than seven million employees in occupations such as taxi drivers, truck drivers, mining and heavy equipment operators, and pilots are exposed daily to whole body vibration (WBV). Four to seven percent of these employees are thought to be exposed to potentially hazardous levels of vibration. It is well known that these chronic exposures can result in chronic pain and is particularly associated with an elevated incidence of low back pain.
Howard BioTech offers VIBRO-1 to record, log, analyze, and quantify occupational vibration exposures. VIBRO-1 is a unique proprietary hardware/software suite that provides a complete WBV assessment as recommended by ISO 2631. VIBRO-1 meets all WBV assessment needs, from pure academic research to industrial safety evaluations. This system provides the professional with all the information required to completely and accurately quantify WBV exposure.

Express setup includes three hours of remote setup and consulting for your whole body vibration assessment system.
With this option, the software front end comes with source code (Labview, Matlab, C++), allowing research professionals to alter the vibration measurement system for any specialized or proprietary application system.
The system includes a pre-amplified (ICP) tri-axial seat-pad accelerometer. Connection to the accelerometer is accomplished via a standard USB 2.0 port found on any computer. While the system includes a Netbook computer, any commercially available PC meeting minimum specifications (laptop or desktop) will be capable of collecting multi-hour data streams and generating full exposure analysis. The VIBRO-1 package comes complete with accelerometer, analysis software, user documentation, and unlimited phone support. Onsite training is offered as an additional option.
