This article presents the development of a system integrated to a ZigBee network to measure whole-body vibration. The developed system allows distinguishing human vibrations of almost 400Hz in three axes with acceleration of almost 50g. The tests conducted in the study ensured the correct functioning of the system for the project’s purpose.
Keywords: ZigBee; wireless network; whole-body vibration; acceleration. ZigBee; wireless network; whole-body vibration; acceleration.
