Hilti’s Active Vibration Reduction (AVR) technology

If you work onsite, exposure to vibration is generally part of the job and regular long-term exposure can lead to health problems such as: disrupting circulation in the hand and forearm, causing damage to nerves, tendons, muscles, bones, joints and even Hand Arm Vibration Syndrome (HAVS).
Hilti Active Vibration Reduction (AVR) technology addresses this problem, with a combination of innovations to help minimise exposure to tool vibration by up to two-thirds compared to competitor tools.
