OTB Products has introduced the Summerweight anti-vibration gloves. These are lightweight and comfortable, with a patented Gelfôm pad in the palm and fingers for vibration and a Lycra form fitting back for cool comfort.
These days vibration is everywhere. Tools and equipment that used to be manual are now powered (electric, pneumatic or motorised).
Hand Arm Vibration Syndrome (HAVS) is a growing occupational problem. It is a cumulative injury that is slow to be identified. The first symptoms are a tingling sensation that can go away overnight. However, the sensation can remain and the fingertips will start going numb.
By the time a real problem is identified it is probably too late to do anything about it, according to OTB.
HAVS used to take 15 years to develop - this can now be as little as 18 months.
Take action now - use Summerweight anti-vibration gloves to prevent workplace injury.
