Muscle activity and acceleration during whole body vibration: effect of frequency and amplitude.
- R. D. Pollock, R. Woledge, K. Mills, F. Martin, D. Newham
- Clinical biomechanics
- 1 October 2010
BACKGROUND Whole body vibration may improve muscle and bone strength, power and balance although contradictory findings have been reported. Prolonged exposure may result in adverse effects. We… Expand
Knowledge and practice of foot care in people with diabetes.
AIM To determine knowledge and practice of foot care in people with diabetes. METHODS A questionnaire was completed by patients in Middlesbrough, South Tees, UK. A knowledge score was calculated… Expand
The effects of whole body vibration on balance, joint position sense and cutaneous sensation
- R. D. Pollock, S. Provan, F. Martin, D. Newham
- European Journal of Applied Physiology
- 1 April 2011
Whole body vibration (WBV) may enhance muscular strength and power but little is known about its influence on sensory-motor function. Vibration of a single muscle or tendon affects the afferent… Expand
Properties of the vastus lateralis muscle in relation to age and physiological function in master cyclists aged 55–79 years
In this study, results are reported from the analyses of vastus lateralis muscle biopsy samples obtained from a subset (n = 90) of 125 previously phenotyped, highly active male and female cyclists… Expand
Human physiological and metabolic responses to an attempted winter crossing of Antarctica: the effects of prolonged hypobaric hypoxia.
- K. A. O’Brien, R. D. Pollock, +7 authors S. Harridge
- Medicine, Biology
- Physiological reports
- 1 March 2018
An insufficient supply of oxygen to the tissues (hypoxia), as is experienced upon high‐altitude exposure, elicits physiological acclimatization mechanisms alongside metabolic remodeling. Details of… Expand
The effect of whole body vibration on older people: a systematic review
Abstract Background: The use of whole body vibration (WBV) platforms by older individuals is increasing, although the effects on this group have still to clearly be established. Objectives: The… Expand
