dc.description.abstractBeneficial effects by low frequency vibrations on muscle strength as in walking and running, and by medium frequency whole body vibration as during the application of electrovibrostimulation were demonstrated recently (Van Zwieten et al., 2007). Very low frequency vibrations (1-2 Hz), however, may evoke so-called kinetosis which is characterized by malaise, dizziness and nausea (Kepa, 2006). Large wind turbines can produce these infrasonic vibrations, as reported by Jung et al. (2008). Wind turbines should be constructed at least 1.5 km from residences (Chouard, 2006) and should stand not too close together.-

dc.description.notesLow frequency vibrations may be dangerous especially in the infrasonic zones, e.g. by kinetosis or “motion sickness” as a part of the windturbine syndrome. Blade Tower Interaction reinforcement zones can create low frequencies too (Doolan et al., 2012). Windturbines should thus stand not too close to each other. 17th century windmills were perceived by contemporaries as dangerous, until strict regulations channeled the initial protest.-
