Vibration at frequencies above 50 Hz applied to the tendon of the extensor muscles of the ankle joint produce the tonic vibration reflex (TVR) which increases when the vibration frequency is increased. The TVR affects a joint's mechanical response to sinusoidal and random oscillations in a manner similar to that seen with tonic voluntary contraction… CONTINUE READING
