Launched in 2016, HAVwear is a wearable wrist device that monitors in real time an individual’s exposure to vibration when using power tools. Reactec’s analytical platform provides cloud-based reporting which allows dynamic risk assessment and exposure reduction. HAVwear has enjoyed significant sales since its launch at the beginning of 2016 with over 10,000 units sold and is in use by a number of leading companies in the UK, including British Airways, Murphy Group, Morgan Sindall Balfour Beatty, the Environment Agency, Siemens and Babcock while Reactec is increasingly targeting other industry sectors both in the UK and internationally.

The support from Scottish Development International (SDI) will come through their international offices in Japan and Australia who will provide research support and assistance with introductions as well as providing part funding for the international travel and event attendance. The two events in September are specialist safety and vibration events including the Safety in Action conference in Melbourne and the 25th Japan Conference on Human Response to Vibration in Nagoya, Japan.

Commenting on the international trade mission, Jacqui McLaughlin, Chief Executive of Reactec said: “We are actively working on opportunities in both Australia and Japan and with SDI’s support we can make further connections and attend these leading events to promote HAVS awareness. There is no cure for HAVS but it is entirely preventable. HAVS not only affects people physically but it can also be mentally debilitating causing anxiety, stress and fatigue that, if not dealt with, can remain with sufferers for a lifetime.”

Mark Newlands, Head of Trade & Investment for Technology & Engineering , Creative Industries and Construction at SDI, said: “ We are delighted to be able to support this exciting and innovative company to expand its operations internationally and we look forward to continuing to work with them as they grow both here at home and abroad .”

HAVS, which is also known as Vibration White Finger, is one of the most common industrial diseases in the UK. The condition is usually caused by the prolonged use of power hand tools, whose vibrations can damage the blood vessels, nerves, muscles and joints of the hand, wrist and arm. 300,000 people in the UK suffer from the condition, for which there is no known cure, only prevention.
