Prehospital Transport and Whole-body Vibration helps medical transport professionals and vehicle and equipment designers understand the concepts of human response to whole body vibration in order to shed light on the ongoing debate on the effectiveness of current immobilization systems. Written for anyone working with patients who have been medically transported, such as emergency medicine physicians, medics, ER nurses, and those researching and studying whole-body vibration (medical students, ergonomists, human factor researchers, engineers, system developers), this book takes an informative look at situations that occur in the air, on the sea and in ground medical vehicles en route to a hospital.

The transport of supine humans under these conditions may lead to severe involuntary motions of body segments, which can generate discomfort, pain and secondary injuries, especially when the patient has a suspected spinal cord injury. This book will help medical transport professionals and vehicle and equipment designers understand the basic concepts of human response to whole body vibration and shed light on the ongoing debate on the effectiveness of current immobilization systems.
