Vibration White Finger Claims
Vibration White Finger is the vascular component of Hand Arm Vibrating Syndrome. Symptoms can include fingers turning white, a loss of manual dexterity and a lack of grip strength. The effects can be heightened in cold weather, and are more painful when the blood returns to the fingers, causing them to turn red, and sometimes blue, supplemented by an uncomfortable throbbing. If it is left untreated, it can end up with complete numbness to the affected fingers
The cause of Vibration White Finger is the use of machinery or tools (usually within the workplace) that are constantly vibrating when in use. This is thought to cause repetitive damage to the nerves and vessels in the hands, which over time develops into vibration white finger.
It is now a substantially recognised disease of the industry trade, and although preventive action is now being taken, it can still occur in approximately 10% of people using machinery of this nature.
