    Hi,

    I've some health issues and as a side effect I had to go through surgery to have my neck fully fused (skull to ribs) in my early 30s.

    I plan to take a video of myself in motion system and show it to my surgeon during next checkup, but I've been wondering if anyone in the community had any issues with spine related to motion systems? Any opinion on which forces are stressful in particular? I, for example, noticed Surge feels kind of stressful, but Roll/Sway not so much.

    And no worries, I completely understand we're not medics here :)

    Cheers!

    A motion sim does not have the full G-Force or impacts of a race car, but does impose a lot more stress than a static rig, so getting your doctor's opinion is the way to go, just to be on te safe side.
