Abstract

A study was carried out to deal with the difficulty associated with the application of the ISO 10819 test method for evaluating the vibration transmissibility of gloves at the palm of the hand. Four different gloves were tested in three different laboratories (two North American and one European). In these tests, some variations to the ISO 10819 test protocol were introduced by the laboratories, specifically by increasing the number of test subjects and test trials and by providing control for hand-held adapter orientation. Transmissibility values reported by the different laboratories were analyzed.
