Several levels of the nervous system are responsible for stability of the vertical position in humans. Three basic inputs are involved: atrial, visual and proprioceptive as well as mechanoreceptors present in the skin. Signals from these inputs control the body posture and its orientation with respect to internal and external reference systems. External systems are formed based on the gravitation field and visual stimuli. Internal systems are generated in the central nervous system by polymodal representations, also referred to as body schema. Some of environmental factors of driver's work place could disturb postural stability. Almost all vehicles are according with actual norms and directives. We investigate how normal week of work has impact on postural stability in new city buses. We concentrate on postural stability for closed eyes. In this paper results of investigation were presented.
