Figures are generally photos, graphs and static images that would be represented in traditional pdf publications.
The image demonstrates poor transducer grip and white knuckles. This can create strain on the muscles and tendons of the wrist and upper limb, which in turn can increase the change of work related injury.
It is preferable to have a lose, relaxed grip with all fingers around the probe, rather than tucked behind.
