Abstract: Train and bus commuters frequently use smart phones and tablets for both personal and profession communication. Several factors could affect the performance on such electronic gadgets. The present experimental study explores the effect of vibration magnitude, posture and frequency on the typing performance of seated subjects on a Tablet under the vertical whole body vibration exposure. The experiments have been performed on ten healthy male subjects exposed to sinusoidal vibration at nine different frequencies (2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 10, 16 and 20 Hz), generated at two levels of vibration magnitudes in vertical direction. The typing difficulty and percentage reduction in typing speed have been found to increase with the increase in vibration magnitude of vertical whole-body vibration. Higher typing difficulty and percentage reduction in typing speed has been observed at the 6Hz frequency for without-backrest posture. For the considered vibration magnitudes and postures, the typing performance was greatly affected at the 6 Hz frequency.
