In the collection and evaluation of the reported experimental data of human whole-body vibration exposure, we noticed some important oversights in the literature, which could cause systematic errors. The objective of this letter is to increase the awareness of the oversights to help reduce the potential for errors in further studies and data applications. Authors mention: 1. Equation oversight, 2. Averaging approaches, and 3. Other oversights.
