Vibration White Finger
Vibration White Finger is a disease which afflicts people who are regularly exposed to large amounts of vibration, specifiacally people who work with power tools and other implements which vibrate.
While not life threatening, the disease can still cause a large amount of pain and suffering to the victim, and is linked in some ways to arthritis.
It is a vascular (relating to blood channels) disease, and the symptoms are easily identifiable as sufferers will find that that often get pins and needles and that their fingers turn white and go numb, leading to reduced dexterity and, in some cases, a certain amount of pain.
Vibration White Finger can occur in either hand, dependent on the levels of exposure to vibration, and may also eventually lead into the development of carpal tunnel syndrome.
It is estimated in some sectors that there are over 200,000 sufferers of this disease, all of whom are eligible to claim compensation through the Industrial Injuries Disablement Benefit, which has been set up to provide compensation for those who have been made disabled or have a disease that has been afflicted on them due to their work.
