Summary

This pilot study is designed to analyze the effects of Vibration Therapy (VT) on grip strength and level of forearm contraction by measuring hand grip dynamometry and surface Electromyography (sEMG) using the BioPac sEMG and digital dynamometry devices after the application of both passive and active Vibrational Therapy (VT) using the PowerPlate.

Cross-training Effect of Whole-body Vibration

This study evaluates whether an increase in the ipsilateral knee flexor muscle strength transfers to the contralateral knee extensors which are not exposed to vibration, when unilateral-is...

Vibratory Stimuli, A Novel Rehabilitation Method for Preventing Post - Traumatic Knee Osteoarthritis

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...

Effects of Whole Body Vibration in Subacute Stroke Patients

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...

Whole-body Vibration Induces a Short or Long Latency Muscular Reflex

Aim: Hypothesis of this study was that WBV activates different receptors or reflex pathways depend on vibration intensity. Aim of this study was to test this hypothesis. Methods: This stu...

Acute Effects of Vibration on Shoulder Flexibility - Experimental Controlled Trial

Whole body vibration (WBV) can help to improve muscle flexibility by stimulating the neuromuscular functions. But there is a dearth in the literature to prove its effectiveness in improvin...

Bone changes after short-term whole body vibration are confined to cancellous bone.

This study assessed femur properties in 80 adult female rats exposed to a range of whole body vibration amplitudes at 45 Hz over five weeks. Our hypothesis was that an optimal amplitude for whole body...

Resistance forces on an intruder penetrating partially fluidized granular media.

This paper analyzes the forces on a cylindrical straight rod penetrated into a granular bed in the partially fluidized state. As gas flow is blown from the bed bottom, the resistance force decreases l...

Laser-Induced Microsphere Hammer-Hit Vibration in Liquid.

We demonstrate a new principle of the laser-induced hammer-hit vibration of a micron-sized black sphere in liquid glycerol with a single divergent Gaussian beam. The light-induced Δα-photophoretic f...

Muscle activity and vibration transmissibility during whole-body vibration in chronic stroke.

This study aimed to investigate the influence of whole-body vibration (WBV) frequency, amplitude and body posture on lower limb muscle activation among people with chronic stroke, and whether the EMG ...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.

Disease of the TIBIAL NERVE (also referred to as the posterior tibial nerve). The most commonly associated condition is the TARSAL TUNNEL SYNDROME. However, LEG INJURIES; ISCHEMIA; and inflammatory conditions (e.g., COLLAGEN DISEASES) may also affect the nerve. Clinical features include PARALYSIS of plantar flexion, ankle inversion and toe flexion as well as loss of sensation over the sole of the foot. (From Joynt, Clinical Neurology, 1995, Ch51, p32)

Disease involving the ULNAR NERVE from its origin in the BRACHIAL PLEXUS to its termination in the hand. Clinical manifestations may include PARESIS or PARALYSIS of wrist flexion, finger flexion, thumb adduction, finger abduction, and finger adduction. Sensation over the medial palm, fifth finger, and ulnar aspect of the ring finger may also be impaired. Common sites of injury include the AXILLA, cubital tunnel at the ELBOW, and Guyon's canal at the wrist. (From Joynt, Clinical Neurology, 1995, Ch51 pp43-5)

Rough, noisy breathing during sleep, due to vibration of the uvula and soft palate.

Ulnar neuropathies caused by mechanical compression of the nerve at any location from its origin at the BRACHIAL PLEXUS to its terminations in the hand. Common sites of compression include the retroepicondylar groove, cubital tunnel at the elbow (CUBITAL TUNNEL SYNDROME), and Guyon's canal at the wrist. Clinical features depend on the site of injury, but may include weakness or paralysis of wrist flexion, finger flexion, and ulnar innervated intrinsic hand muscles, and impaired sensation over the ulnar aspect of the hand, fifth finger, and ulnar half of the ring finger. (Joynt, Clinical Neurology, 1995, Ch51, p43)
