Abstract

A proof of concept prototype of a "smart glove" system, which could monitor the physiological stresses related to repetitive strain and vibration-induced injuries, was developed at the University of Limerick Enterprise Research Centre in Ireland. The device logged grip force, vibration and goniometry data and could alert the user if dangerous vibration levels were reached. This prototype will provide a basis for future developments of devices that would enable safety by providing more information about injury risk in the workplace.
