Vibration White Finger (VWF)
Vibration white finger (VWF) is a condition that causes the fingers to become white, numb, and painful. It is caused by damage to the blood vessels in the fingers. VWF is mainly caused by exposure to high levels of vibration over an extended period.
The symptoms of VWF may vary from person to person. Some people may experience only mild symptoms, such as tingling and numbness in the fingers. Others may experience more severe symptoms, such as pain, coldness, and swelling in the fingers.
There is no cure for VWF, but the symptoms can be managed. Treatment usually involves avoiding vibration exposure and using medications to improve blood flow to the fingers.
Whole-Body Vibration (WBV)
Whole-body vibration (WBV) is a type of vibration that is transmitted through the body. It can be caused by several factors, including driving on rough roads, operating vibrating machinery, and working on vibrating surfaces.
