Vibration exposure at workplaces is generally multi-axial. The health effects of vibration exposure also likely depend on the vibration direction. Therefore, there is a wide interest in the simulation of the multi-axial vibration in laboratory experiments. The advances of technologies have made it possible to develop a multi-axial test system for studying hand-transmitted vibration exposure and health effects. The purposes of this paper are to introduce a new 3D vibration test system and to provide examples of test data using it.
