Industrial glove manufacturer Ansell-Sumisho Ltd is marketing a glove it claims can drastically reduce vibration absorbed by the hands when using tools such as chainsaws.

The gloves, which are retailing under the name of VibraGuard, feature an exterior made of rubber and an interior containing a special gel substance that protects the wearer from the vibration emitted from machinery.
The company claims that the gloves can cut 60 per cent of the vibration caused by a 125Hz product. Previous products have reduced vibration by up to 10 per cent.

Ansell-Sumisho is marketing the product to industries such as forestry.
