Xi Engineering’s depth of knowledge on the effects of vibration on humans placed their experts at the forefront of this movement, helping to has influence the design of wearable technologies, which is fast becoming the norm.
Hand Arm Vibration (HAV)
The cumulative effect of vibration on hands and arms can have a detrimental impact on human health. Xi has helped to develop technologies which can monitor HAV and provide working strategies to reduce the risk of white finger. The development of wearable HAV monitoring technologies has placed Xi uniquely as an expert in the interface of technology and humans. This work can be applied to other smart technologies.
Designing and identifying the correct sensors to use in wearable technologies can be tricky. Xi’s use of specialist measurement equipment, alongside the team’s extensive knowledge of the impact of vibration on humans, is key to helping our clients overcome barriers to the development of wearable technologies.
