Seat Pad Triaxial Accelerometer - Hardware, Software and complete solution

The The Seat Pad Accelerometer Model KS963B100 was developed for measuring whole body vibration transmitted by driver seats of building machines and other vehicles in compliance with ISO 10326-1 and ISO 7096. The sensor has an IEPE output for robust signal transmission.

The Sensor is available with the PC Based Whole-Body Vibration Measurement System ( VM-Body ) with USB A/D convertors and Software that provides the measurement of vibration transmitted to the human body by the seat surface, the backrest or the feet to ISO 2631 

Whole-body vibrations are caused by vibrations or shocks which are transmitted by machines and vehicles in the workplace via seat or feet. If a person is exposed to strong whole-body vibrations, safety and health are endangered and it is proven that backache can be provoked or aggravated.
The "vibration directive” (directive 2002/44/EC) defines minimum requirements for the protection against risks arising from whole-body vibrations.
