Abstract
The ISO-10819 (1996) recommends a design of instrumented handle and specifies a palmheld adapter for laboratory assessment of anti-vibration performance of gloves. Although these designs and test procedures have been widely used, many studies have acknowledged a relatively high degree of measurement error associated with the test fixture design. The dynamic behavior of the recommended test fixture (handle and adapter), coupled with the human hand, tends to alter the standardized vibration inputs to the glove and result in potential test errors, which have not been documented. In this study, the dynamic characteristics of the handle-adapter system are systematically investigated to identify their contribution to the potential measurement errors. An improved design of the instrumented handle was developed to reduce the potential errors.
