Resumen The most frequently used tools in a Swedish truck assembling factory are impact wrenches. In 1982, 23% of the workers were suffering from vibration-induced white finger (VWF) and 33% from numbness after 7-9yrs of exposure. New tools were introduced in the factory between 1984 and 1986. In 1987 almost all of the impact wrenches were changed to nut runners. Some screwdrivers, impulse wrenches and wrenches were also used. There was now no increase in the risk for VWF compared with the reference group, but a 16% prevalence of nocturnal tingling was still found, corresponding to a relative risk of 10 (Mantel-Haenszel odds ratio).
