Abstract
The acute and chronic effects of segmental vibration exposure to the hands are well documented (Noel 2000). Chronic exposure to hand-transmitted vibration results in hand-arm vibration syndrome (HAVS), a disorder consisting of vascular, neurological and musculoskeletal pathology in the upper extremities. That a condition analogous to HAVS might occur in the feet after segmental lower-extremity vibration exposure is biologically plausible though not well studied; the presented case (Thompson et al., 2010) represents the first published report on this topic in the English language literature, with only one other case report in a non English journal (Tingsgard et al., 1994).
