The Assessment of the Whole-Body Vibration on Health Effects in Automobile Assembly Line Worker in South Korea
1.1. Background: In general, whole-body vibration is one of the potential contributors to the development of back disorders of workers. In particular, it is thought that workers at the automobile assembly line are exposed to mechanically induced vibrations, either Whole-body Vibration (WBV) or Hand-arm Vibration (HAV). However, we can not assess the WBV on health effects in automobile assembly line workers.
1.1. Introduction: Neurocysticercosis (NCC) is one of the seven neglected endemic zoonoses targeted for elimination by the World Health Organization. NCC is a common primary cause of preventable epilepsy in many developing countries caused by the platyhelminth Taenia solium and yet the clinical diagnosis is often difficult as neurological presentation in non-specific.

A traumatic brain injury (TBI) can cause temporary dysfunction of brain cells.

Consequences of TBI can include physical, sensory, behavioral, and communication disorders, as well as disturbances in cognitive functioning.
