Abstract

Hand-arm vibration syndrome (HAVS) is mainly caused by excessive exposure to the vibration generated by hand-powered tool. Anti-vibration pad and glove have been developed as the alternative of this problem. Local cheap agricultural waste such as coir fiber may have the potential in replacing other synthetic material to attenuate vibration generated by hand-powered tools. The objective of this study is to investigate the vibration absorption characteristic of coir fiber and the industrial synthetic material. The test will be conducted according to IS05349 and ISO10819 on a manual hand-powered grass trimmer. The test was conducted for duration of 60s of each recording of vibration and the measurements were taken at the contact area between the palm and the handle of the tool. The transmissibility of vibration from the coir fiber was 0.81 which was found lower than gel foam elastomers. Therefore, this pilot study has shown the potential of the coir fiber in absorbing vibration from hand-powered tool, i.e. the grass trimmer.
