Services

The Human Factors Research Unit offers various services related to human responses to vibration. We see patients in our clinic to assess the hand-arm vibration syndrome. We tests seats and gloves to assess what effects they have on human exposures to vibration. We measure exposures to hand-transmitted vibration and whole-body vibration to assess the likely effects on comfort, performance, or health.
