    Vibration White Finger is a devastating condition which is also more commonly known as Hand-Arm Vibration Syndrome (HAVS).  As this more modern name suggests, this condition affects not just the fingers, but the hands and arms as well.

    Unfortunately, once this condition has become established, it is unlikely that there will be an improvement in symptoms.  However, if it is diagnosed early enough, then the patient may be able to prevent a worsening of symptoms by stopping the use of tools and equipment which are known to exacerbate the symptoms further.

    What is Vibration White Finger?

    Vibration White Finger is the name given to a condition when the nerves and small blood vessels in the hands and fingers become damaged.  This damage has been linked to the prolonged and constant use of vibrating tools and equipment such as:

    • Pneumatic drills
    • Impact wrenches
    • Hammer drills
    • Grinders
    • Sanders
    • Chain saws

    As these blood vessels and nerves become irrepairably damaged, the circulation and sensation in the fingers and hands becomes compromised.  This can lead to restricted blood flow and numbness in the fingers.  Eventually the fingers will change colour and become red, blue and then permanently white due to the lack of blood flow.  Sensation becomes difficult and fine motor movements with the fingers is impossible.

    How long does it take for this syndrome to develop?

    Vibration White Finger can take many years to develop.  It is thought that the prolonged use of vibrating tools and equipment usually over 10 years of repetitive use can cause this syndrome to develop.  This type of injury is associated with heavy use of this type of equipment and it may take many years to develop symptoms.
