To investigate the effects of whole body vibration on postural control and on the level of satisfaction regarding how to reach the goals of the patients with ataxia
Patients will be randomly assigned to 2 groups, group 1 will take only exercise therapy, group 2 will take exercise therapy and whole body vibration together. After 1 week wash-out period, patients assigned other therapy period. All assessments will be repeated before and after each therapy period. Exercise therapy will consist of selected balance, coordination and walking exercises according to the individual needs of patients. Whole body vibration (20-30 Hz, minimum amplitude) will be applied to cases in the form of 4 sets (1 min application and 1min rest.) Cases will take the treatment 1-hour, 3 days in a week for 8 weeks.
The evaluation parameters consists of demographic information, Computerized Dynamic Posturography, International Cooperative Ataxia Rating Scale, Trunk Impairment Scale, Berg Balance Scale, Barthel Index and Goal Assessment Scale.
Allocation: Randomized, Intervention Model: Crossover Assignment, Masking: Single Blind (Outcomes Assessor), Primary Purpose: Treatment

The purpose of the study is to determine the effect of whole-body vibration (WBV) on body composition, physical fitness, and quality of life.
The overall aim of the proposed study is to determine whether whole body vibration is beneficial in promoting bone turnover, physical fitness and neuromotor performance in patients with su...

This study will evaluate the acute effects of vibration (whole body vibration and local muscle vibration) on quadriceps function, knee joint proprioception, and gait biomechanics linked to...
Whole body vibration is an exercise modality that could modulate tissue blood perfusion and neural reflexes, and thus may have the potential to alter muscle stiffness through modulation of...
Whole-body vibration (WBV) is an unconventional exercise therapy that appears to provide the same benefits of resistance training in postmenopausal women while being more safe and gentle on the joints...
Stroke is one of the leading causes for disability worldwide. Exercise therapy is a key element of stroke rehabilitation but no evidence are present in literature. Moreover recently focal muscle vibra...
Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men and patients treated with androgen deprivation therapy (ADT) experience unfavourbale changes in body composition and associated metabolic complications...
Skeletal muscle exercise regulates several important metabolic genes in humans. We know little about the effects of environmental stress (heat) and mechanical stress (vibration) on skeletal muscle. Pa...
Instructional programs in the care and development of the body, often in schools. The concept does not include prescribed exercises, which is EXERCISE THERAPY.
The exercise capacity of an individual as measured by endurance (maximal exercise duration and/or maximal attained work load) during an EXERCISE TEST.
Controlled physical activity, more strenuous than at rest, which is performed in order to allow assessment of physiological functions, particularly cardiovascular and pulmonary, but also aerobic capacity. Maximal (most intense) exercise is usually required but submaximal exercise is also used. The intensity of exercise is often graded, using criteria such as rate of work done, oxygen consumption, and heart rate.
A type of strength-building exercise program that requires the body muscle to exert a force against some form of resistance, such as weight, stretch bands, water, or immovable objects. Resistance exercise is a combination of static and dynamic contractions involving shortening and lengthening of skeletal muscles.
An occupational disorder resulting from prolonged exposure to vibration, affecting the fingers, hands, and forearms. It occurs in workers who regularly use vibrating tools such as jackhammers, power chain saws, riveters, etc. Symptoms include episodic finger blanching, NUMBNESS, tingling, and loss of nerve sensitivity.
