The InnoMeter HVM 5349 is designed for measurements of human exposure to hand-transmitted vibrations acc. to ISO 5349:2001, directive 2002/44/EC and LärmVibrationsArbSchV.
If hand held machines or workpieces transmit strong vibrations to the operator, a decreased performance and even diseases in blood vessels, nerves, bones, joints, muscles or connective tissues might develop.
For this reason, divers guidelines stipulate measurements acc. to EN ISO 5349, which determines the exposure on the human hand-arm-system.
