Abstract

Introduction

Bus drivers are exposed to whole body vibration (WBV) and postural stress, both risk factors for low back pain (LBP).

Introduction

The study aimed to (1) assess WBV exposure and (2) evaluate the effect of an intervention to reduce LBP.

Discussion

WBV exposure should be frequently evaluated to maintain below action-limit levels. Although this study revealed a significant reduction in LBP prevalence in the previous seven days, further research is needed in a randomised controlled trial design.
