Hand Arm Vibration Syndrome (HAVS)

Hand-Arm Vibration Syndrome (HAVS) is the collective term for all symptoms that are the result of vibration damages that may occur in the fingers, hands, and arms during repetitive work with vibrating tools or machinery.

Vibration injuries are divided into three subgroups: neurological disorders (such as carpal tunnel syndrome), vascular injuries, and musculoskeletal injuries (such as arthritis or tendinitis).
