Abstract
A number of recent studies measuring segmental, tool induced vibration are summarized, critically reviewed and correlated with occupational disease. The mechanisms by which vibration related diseases, especially Raynaud's phenomenon, occur are explored including pathogenesis, individual susceptibility, nervous system considerations, and the role of arterial wall shear stress. The importance of reliable data in vibration induced trauma is emphasized. Measurement techniques reviewed include use of cadavers, accelerometry, electromyography, and animal experiments using guinea pigs. Newer techniques such as slow motion roentgen cinematography and thermography are mentioned.
