What is Vibration White Finger?
Vibration white finger, also known as hard-arm vibration syndrome, is an industrial injury triggered by the continuous use of vibrating tools that effects the blood vessels, nerves, muscles and joints of the hand, wrist and arm.
- Tingling ‘whiteness’ or numbness in the fingers.
- Fingers change colour.
- Fingers rapidly become pale and feeling is lost. This phase is followed by an intense ‘red flush’ due to blood circulation returning to the fingers, often accompanied by uncomfortable throbbing.
- Loss of manual dexterity. Attacks can occur frequently in cold temperatures, not only at work, but during activities such as gardening, car washing or even watching outdoor sports. This can last up to an hour causing a considerable amount of pain and loss of manual dexterity and reduced strength of grip.
