  • Vibration applied to the Achilles tendon is well known to induce in freely standing subjects a backward body displacement and in restrained subjects an illusory forward body tilt. The purpose of the present experiment was to evaluate the effect of Achilles tendon vibration (90Hz) on postural orientation in subjects free of equilibrium constraints. Subjects (n=12) were strapped on a backboard that could be rotated in the antero-posterior direction with the axis of rotation at the level of the… CONTINUE READING
