Abstract: Human bio-behavior in technical and social activities is very often affected by several external factors developed within the classical system, man-machine-environment.
Some of the human activities, using tools or machinery can induce a cumulative series of events in the upper or lower limbs and can change the rate of alertness and precision.
There is a wide range of methods, tools or methodologies to study of these qualitative values of human activities and this paper comes to integrate a new integrative analyze strategy.
Thus, in this research were taken into account aspects of the effect sounds and vibrations (controlled) degree on handling and postural stability in order to be integrated into the strategy of correlation with other structural factors.
In this respect, a series of tests were conducted on a sample of human subjects who were investigated and determined the bio-behavior degree (BBD) related to the structural factors.
The results of these tests come to confirm the assumptions of these correlative studies at which we were applied theory of analyze of variance (ANOVA) and allow the development of advanced integrative strategy for achieving rapid and highlight sounds and vibration effects on human bio-behavior.
