Hand/Arm and Whole Body Human Vibration Testing
Vibration of the whole body, hand, and arm are measured in accordance with published standards (ISO, ANSI, EU). Based on the vibration magnitude and frequency, safe exposure limits may be determined. Hand/arm vibration tests are typically conducted on powered hand tools (assembly tools, grinders, jack hammers, etc.). Whole body vibration tests are typically performed on ride on vehicles (lift trucks, automobiles, etc.) or vibrating floor areas.
