Título Metrics of whole-body vibration and exposure-response relationship for low back pain in professional drivers: A prospective cohort study
Información bibliográfica July 2009, Vol.82, No.7, p.893-917. Illus. 54 ref.
Resumen The objective of this study was to investigate the relation between whole-body vibration and low back pain (LBP) among professional drivers. The incidence of LBP was investigated in a cohort of 537 drivers over a 2-year period. Data on LBP, individual characteristics and work-related risk factors were obtained during structured interviews. Vibration measurements were made on representative samples of industrial machines and vehicles. Vibration exposure was expressed in terms of either equivalent acceleration over an 8-h reference period or vibration dose value. During the previous 12 months, the incidences of LBP, high pain intensity and lower back disability were 36.3%, 24.6% and 19.2%, respectively. Physical workload, but not psychosocial environment, was significantly associated with the occurrence of LBP. Other findings are discussed.
