Good Vibrations?! Good Vibrations?! Underestimated Risk of Vibrations from Work Pedelecs

Normal bikes are on the way out – many postmen and women are no longer riding conventional bikes but instead a work pedelec; in other words an electrically assisted bike. Other sectors, such as trade and outpatient care, are also opting for transport pedelecs or trialling their use to potentially save time in towns and cities What sounds progressive as a work aid entails not only benefits for employees. The (new) burdens are frequently underestimated: A much greater unladen weight that needs to be moved owing to sturdier frames and batteries, a higher workload due to a larger loading area and the strain resulting from hand, arm and whole body vibrations.

The “Vibrations from Work Pedelecs” project was realised by the LIA.nrw in cooperation with the Professional Association for Transport Economics Postal Logistics and Telecommunication, the University of Technology Hamburg-Harburg and velotech.de GmbH.
