HAVS

Hand-Arm Vibration Syndrome (HAVS) is a general term for injuries to the human hand arm and fingers caused by vibration. Vibration injuries occur frequently in multiple occupations and industries, such as automotive repair shops, construction work, engineering, dental care, foot care and many more.

Vibration damages can be irreversible, especially the neurological component, if not discovered in time. Early changes in the nerves (a reduction of sensibility) can be detected with Multi-Frequency Vibrometry.
