The Human Factors Research Unit has more than 40 years of continuous experience in researching human responses to vibration. The research contributed to many of the current standards for measuring, evaluating, and assessing vibration. Current research continues to advance understanding and address practical problems associated with human exposures to whole-body vibration, hand-transmitted vibration and low frequency motions.
The Human Factors Research Unit laboratories have a unique range of human-rated test facilities for experimental studies of human responses to whole-body vibration, hand-transmitted vibration and low frequency oscillation
The Human Factors Research Unit offers a range of services including seat testing, glove testing, the measurement, evaluation and assessment of occupational exposures to whole-body vibration and hand transmitted vibration, and the clinical diagnosis of the hand-arm vibration syndrome (including vibration-induced white finger)
