Whole Body Vibration Training Among Older People Using Sheltered Housing

2012-10-10 17:00:00 | BioPortfolio


The purpose of this randomised (double-blind) controlled exercise intervention trial is to determine whether the whole body vibration (WBV) training can effectively improve physical functioning of older people living in or regularly using services of sheltered housing, reduce their fear of falling, and prevent falling. The study comprises a 10-week training period and a 10-month follow-up period.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

An indicator of body density as determined by the relationship of BODY WEIGHT to BODY HEIGHT. BMI=weight (kg)/height squared (m2). BMI correlates with body fat (ADIPOSE TISSUE). Their relationship varies with age and gender. For adults, BMI falls into these categories: below 18.5 (underweight); 18.5-24.9 (normal); 25.0-29.9 (overweight); 30.0 and above (obese).
