6th American Conference on Human Vibration

Milwaukee, WI US
June 8, 2016 to June 10, 2016

The United States lags far behind in the understanding of health implications of workplace exposure to vibration. This occupational related topic is not sufficiently covered in medical school curricula and encountered in a single clinical discipline or specialty. Patients typically come with late stage disease which is not reversible by treatment, whereas early detection and intervention can prevent progression to permanent disability.

Learning Objectives

1. To increase physician and allied health professionals understanding of vibration-induced disease early signs and symptoms, available diagnostic tests, and recognition of high risk occupations.

2. To raise awareness that clinical tools utilizing vibration are available for movement rehabilitation and promotion of tissue healing.

3. To acquire an understanding of the current mechanisms by which vibration can injure or heal so that the pathophysiology is better understood and targets for novel therapeutic interventions as well as further research on the process may be forthcoming from the gain of knowledge

4. To appraise the physician of the current laws, recommendations, standards, available risk calculators and recommended work practices to reduce risk so that the patient treatment plan goes beyond the clinic and engages outside resources

5.  To increase the understanding of what is possible from engineering advanced technologies that may generate novel tools for improving clinical practice.

6.  To develop a culture of ongoing interactions by bringing together physicians, allied health professionals, research scientists and engineers that encourages physician identification of the vibration disease pathophysiology and articulates to the team what research and technologies are needed to improve treatment outcomes.
