A comparison of three bucking bar handles: vibration measured at the tool interface and transmitted to the hand, forearm and shoulder

Conference paper - HAVS


Finally, based on this preliminary analysis of bucking bar activity, the HAVWEAR device seemed to be relatively accurate in estimating characterizing the buck-ing bar-born exposures. This fairly non-invasive tool can be used to estimate full day and multi-day, longitudinal exposures across groups of workers. 

With the relatively inexpensive and minimally invasive capture of full day, longitudinal vibration exposures across large groups of workers, this device may have the potential to better estimate and/or determine the causality of tool-related vibration-induced injuries, and potentially be used as an administrative tool to measure and distribute exposures across a group of workers.
