The Effect of Plantar Vibration Stimuli on the Balance of Older Women

2014-07-23 21:11:15 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The objective of the present study was to identify the effect of direct vibration at a frequency of 100 Hz, applied to the plantar region, on the balance of women aged 60 years or older. The hypothesis is that the place improves body balance.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A POSTURE in which an ideal body mass distribution is achieved. Postural balance provides the body carriage stability and conditions for normal functions in stationary position or in movement, such as sitting, standing, or walking.

The balance of fluid in the BODY FLUID COMPARTMENTS; total BODY WATER; BLOOD VOLUME; EXTRACELLULAR SPACE; INTRACELLULAR SPACE, etc., maintained by processes in the body that regulate the intake and excretion of WATER and ELECTROLYTES, particularly SODIUM and POTASSIUM.

The balance between acids and bases in the BODY FLUIDS. The pH (HYDROGEN-ION CONCENTRATION) of the arterial BLOOD provides an index for the total body acid-base balance.

Sensory functions that transduce stimuli received by proprioceptive receptors in joints, tendons, muscles, and the INNER EAR into neural impulses to be transmitted to the CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM. Proprioception provides sense of stationary positions and movements of one's body parts, and is important in maintaining KINESTHESIA and POSTURAL BALANCE.

The perception of and sensitivity to stimuli originating inside of the body. It is a sense of the physiological condition of the entire body.
