Manual performance deterioration in the cold estimated using the wind chill equivalent temperature

Research output: Contribution to JournalArticleAcademicpeer-review

Abstract

Manual performance during work in cold and windy climates is severely hampered by decreased dexterity, but valid dexterity decrease predictors based on climatic factors are scarce. Therefore, this study investigated the decrease in finger- and hand dexterity and grip force for nine combinations of ambient temperature (-20, -10 and O°C) and wind speeds (0.2, 4 and 8 m·s
