OBJECTIVES To investigate the effects of a 6-week whole body vibration (WBV) training program in patients with chronic stroke. DESIGN Randomized controlled pilot trial with 6 weeks' follow-up. SETTING University hospital. PARTICIPANTS Adults with chronic stroke (N=15) were randomly assigned to an intervention (n=7) or a control group (n=8). (More)
The aim of the study was to investigate the effect of 6 months' local vibration training on bone mineral density (BMD), muscle strength, muscle mass, and physical performance in postmenopausal women (66-88 years). The study was organized as a randomized controlled trial for postmenopausal women who lived in daily care service flats and rest homes.(More)
The aim of current study was to measure the transmission of whole-body vibration through the entire body and to relate this to body posture and induced muscular activation. Eight clinically healthy subjects performed 3 static body postures-high squat (135°), deep squat (110°), and erect stance, whereas vibration transmission was assessed over a wide range(More)
The aim of the present study was to evaluate the vibration transmission from a vibration platform through Vectran cables to the upper body and its relationship to induced muscular activation. Fifteen clinically healthy participants performed 3 different arm exercises-biceps curl, triceps curl, and lateral raise. Vibration transmission to the upper body was(More)
