Abstract
In humans, occupational use of vibrating hand tools leads to the development of neural and vascular damage. The goal of this study was to use the rat tail model to characterize the biodynamic response of the tail tissue to different vibration frequencies, and to determine what physiological changes occur in the vascular and neural systems of the tail after a single exposure to vibration. The acute biodynamic and physiological responses of the rat tail to vibration are similar to the responses seen in human fingers (1-3). Future studies will use this model to understand the effects of repeated vibration on soft tissue damage.
