Low-magnitude High-frequency Vibration Study on Fracture Rate in Community Elderly

Fragility fracture is common due to global aging problem, incurring huge healthcare expenditure. The occurrence of fragility fracture is usually caused by a fall incidence of an elderly with low bone quality and poor balancing ability. Therefore, any approach to improve or retard both sarcopenia and osteoporosis will be helpful to prevent osteoporotic fracture incidence. With the intensive research on low magnitude high frequency vibration (LMHFV), many scientific evidences sup...

Objective: This is a randomized controlled trial (RCT) in osteoporosis patients randomized to standard parathyroid hormone (PTH) treatment alone or to standard PTH treatment and Whole-body vibration (WBV). PTH is an effective but expensive anabolic treatment for osteoporosis. WBV stimulates muscles and bones. A combined treatment might have synergistic or additive beneficial effects on bone, reducing fracture risk making treatment more effective and cost-effective. A ben...

Feasibility Study for the Use of Low-magnitude, High Frequency Mechanical Stimulation of Bone in Persons With Spinal Cord Injury (SCI)

In persons with SCI, because of inherent considerations, the use of mechanical stimulation has not bee studied to determine improvement in bone mass. To achieve maximum transmission of the vibration from a vibrating plate to the lower body, the legs must be extended and the feet firmly placed against the surface plate of the device. Thus, these logistical considerations must be addressed to perform this mechanical intervention in persons with SCI. In those with complete or a...

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 study was conducted on 11 healthy adults. WBV was applied at various frequencies and amplitudes. The right soleus T-reflex latency was determined before and during WBV. WBV-IMR latency of the right soleus was determined using two different vibration intensity: weak vibration and powerful vibratio...

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 improving the flexibility of the upper limb muscles. Therefore the purpose of the study is to determine the effects of vibration on improving upper limb flexibility. This experimental research will be conducted by recruiting participants at the age of 19 to 27 with no histories of injuries on the uppe...

The Association Between Preoperative Sepsis and the Mortality After Hip Fracture Surgery

The worldwide occurrence of hip fracture is high with an annual incidence of approximately 100 per 100.000 people(1). Mortality for patients undergoing hip fracture surgery is high with a 30-day mortality rate varying between 4.5 and 13.3 %(2-4). It is agreed that non-modifiable factors such as age, gender and pre-existing comorbidities contribute to early death of hip fracture patients(2). However, not many studies have focused on preoperative sepsis as a potential risk factor...

Effect of Vibration on Muscle Properties, Physical Activity and Balance in Children With Cerebral Palsy

The aim of the 6-month randomized controlled trial, with 6-month no treatment follow-up, is to examine the effects of low-magnitude vibration on muscle, physical activity, and balance in children with spastic cerebral palsy.

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-isolated whole body vibration (WBV) is applied to the lower extremity.

Muscle strength will be measured with the Cybex® (Massachusetts, USA) extremity-testing...

Effects of Whole Body Vibration on Postmenopausal Risk-factors in Elderly Women

There is general agreement that physical exercise can positively influence osteoporotic fracture risk along two pathways: first by reducing the risk of falls via an improvement of fall related neuromuscular abilities; second by increasing bone strength. Whole body vibration (WBV) training has recently been proposed as a new approach for prevention and treatment of osteoporosis. Animal studies have shown evidence that WBV may be an effective method to improve bone mass, archite...
