Primary Study of Applying Acupuncture to Reduce Driver Postural Muscle Fatigue 2002-01-0777

In designing an automobile seat, it is important to minimize the fatigue experienced by the driver resulting from long-term sitting. In this study eight healthy male subjects participated in two group experiments that were A-group and B-group. Acupuncture was put on to the subjects for reducing postural fatigue in B-group. The sEMG of muscle activity at L4/L5 as well as subjective self-report on fatigue were recorded and tested. By analyzing and comparing the EMG median frequency and the subjective evaluations between two groups a conclusion was drawn that acupuncture could reduce the postural muscle fatigue effectively.
