Paper Abstract

In this paper a new measurement technique to analyze hand-arm vibration is proposed. The methodology is based on a laser scanning vibrometer, a new instrument that measures, without contact, vibration on grid points on a surface. The technique can be applied in laboratory tests and also to perform in field tests on hand-guided vibrating tools, vehicles, machine. Tests with sinusoidal vibrations up to 250 Hz have been performed on different subjects with their hand on three test devices, designed accordingly to ISO standards, has been used to verify the measurement technique. Further work has been started in order to develop a measurement system for mapping the mechanical impedance measurements in some points of the hand of different subjects are illustrated. These techniques prove to be very powerful to analyze hand-arm dynamic characteristics.
