MOTILITY STUDIES - EXPERIENCE OF OUTDOOR MOVEMENTS

MOTILITETSSTUDIER - UPPLEVELSESKILLNADER VID UTOMHUSFOERFLYTTNINGAR

The motility studies deal with the experiences of man during outdoor movements by land and air. Research results of medical, psychological and sociological science are compiled. Twelve common ways of movement are studied: crawling, walking, running, cycling, car driving, travel by car and bus, train driving, travel by train and air, piloting. Differences in experience of movements were analyzed. The experiences concern movements, effects on organs, sense impression, control of movements, mental activity, discomfort, individual variations, possible combinations, accidents and environmental aspects. The studies result in comments on modifications of play and movement areas, footways, footway lighting, highway design and bus lines. Important areas of future research are outlined. /TRRL/
