OPERC Present Whole Body Vibration Guidance for Grammer Seating in Japan (26/06/05)
Mr Duncan Summers, Vinci and Post Graduate (Ph.D.) Researcher at Loughborough University recently presented the very latest OPERC guidance document on Whole Body Vibration to a packed audience of manufacturers and practitioners from around the Far East. This event was organised by the world’s leading seating manufacturer Grammer Seating (based in Germany) and was held in Japan. Grammer have already very kindly sponsored the said document and have already purchased over 2,000 copies of it; these documents will therefore be distributed around the Far East and throughout the EU.
The event was a huge success and a great deal of interest in the association and the research work that we undertake was shown. Indeed, links with colleagues throughout the Far East are now being forged.
OPERC wishes to thank Grammer Seating for their hospitality and Mr Duncan Summers for his first class presentation.
