Abstract [en]

Vibration exposure may cause the hand-arm vibration syndrome (HAVS), including digital vasospasms (vibration white fingers; VWF), sensorineural symptoms and/or muscular weakness and fatigue (Gemne, 1997). Neurophysiologic symptoms include numbness and/or tingling, impaired touch sensitivity, impaired manual dexterity and reduced grip strength in the hands. The Stockholm Workshop Scale is commonly used for sensorineural (SN) staging (OSN - 3 SN). Sensorineural symptoms of this in combination with difficulties in handling small objects may interfere both with the workers social- and work-related activities (Sakakibara et al., 2005).
