Short-term effects of whole-body vibration on maximal voluntary isometric knee extensor force and rate of force rise

Abstract

Whole-Body vibration (WBV) may lead to muscle contractions via reflex activation of the primary muscle spindle (Ia) fibres. WBV has been reported to increase muscle power in the short term by improved muscle activation. The present study set out to investigate the acute effects of a standard WBV training session on voluntary activation during maximal… (More)
