View Full Version : Child vibration properties

Dear Biomch-L,

I recently asked if anyone had information regarding the vibrational
properties of small children under 4 years of age. Since few people
responded I just wanted to give it one last try by adding some

I am especially interested in whole-body vibrational characteristics
such as point impedances, natural frequencies, transmissibilities or
vibrational models that had been researched for small children of
under 4 years of age. I would also be interested in any data
regarding the vibrations of long bones, viscera or other specific
structures if related to children.

I would greatly appreciate any suggestions regarding how to track
down such data. Thanks.
