Hi, New here 1st time posting.

I’m looking for information on how sound passes through the human body and what clothing or fabric might help and reduce intense vibrations from going through the human body.

Question: Can sound waves affect the human body? Muscle, bone, vital organs, the brain, and the health and safety of the pre-born.

I’ve read that it can affect the pre-born and that velvet and perhaps other fabrics can be helpful in regards to this.

Has any research been done, or is there any information in this area?

Without knowing the frequency and amplitude of your sonic issue, we can not assist you since all barrier material types are frequency and amplitude dependent.

I have a girlfriend/acquaintance who sings and travels with a band.

They end up in all sorts of venues, indoors and outside.

They do a lot of Jackson Browne and Warren Zevon type music, and some other stuff as well.
I don’t know if that can give you an idea of the loudness, frequency, and amplitude.
I don’t think it has ever been measured.

Is that enough information for you?

I’m thinking that this might also help people who work at various venues and in various noisy situations. Or even for something as simple as running a vacuum cleaner.

Also wondering if prolonged exposure could affect a person’s heartbeat and rhythms. Idk

Please let me know if you have or if there can be any info on this.

Thanks

No fabric that we are aware of can act as a barrrier in any of your cited examples

I’ve been looking at velvets, valours, and other fabrics that are typically used for sound-reduction curtains. Also certain weaves of fabrics.
