The primary objective of this study is to compare the lumbar proprioception of patients with chronic back pain to that of healthy volunteers during low- and high-frequency muscle vibration. The order of measures (low frequency of vibration, high frequency vibration and no vibration) is randomized in a cross-over design. Patients and volunteers are matched by age and body mass index.
The occurrence of distal radius fractures is well known to be a sentinel event as these fractures are associated with 2 to 4 times increased risk of subsequent hip fractures in elderly patients. Studies have shown a significantly increased degree of postural sway in these patients, which is strongly associated with recurrent falls. The latest Cochrane systematic review also shows a lack of evidence on the effectiveness of current rehabilitation interventions. Low-magnitu...
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...
Dyspnea, the sensation of breathing discomfort or shortness of breath, is one of the main symptoms for patients affected by Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), particularly during exercise. Previous study show that chest wall vibration decrease dyspnea in COPD patients and precisely when applied during the inspiration phase, called "in-phase vibration" (IPV) which provide vibration directly on intercostal muscles. These findings have been obtained in laboratory contex...
Treatment for childhood cancer interferes with normal bone maturation such that maximal peak bone mass may never be attained by some survivors of childhood cancer.In childhood cancer survivors, a randomized trial evaluating the effectiveness of vitamin D and calcium supplementation among ALL survivors is currently underway; however, few other interventions have been offered for this at risk population. Recent evidence demonstrates that low magnitude; high frequency mechanical s...
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 osteoarthritis development in individuals with anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction. Subjects will be randomly assigned to control (no vibration), whole body vibration, and local muscle vibration groups, and the aforementioned characteristics will be assessed prior to and following the r...
Evaluation of heart rate variability in time and frequency domains, in Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) after 03 months of vitamine D supplementation and whole body vibration (WBV) training
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 subacute stroke.
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...
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...
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...
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.
Femur fractures are a common injury in the Pediatric population. Despite their high incidence little do we know about the long term implications on the bones' length. Our main goal is to clarify this obscure issue by assessing the femoral and tibial length as determined by the fractures, measuring techniques and treatment modalities
The overall aim of the proposed study is to determine whether whole body vibration is beneficial in promoting bone health, physical fitness and neuromotor performance in patients with chronic stroke. Subjects in the experimental group will undergo whole body vibration therapy (1 session per day, 3 sessions per week) for 8 weeks. The vibration frequency used in this study will be 30Hz. The total duration of exposure to vibration for the experimental group will be 10 minut...
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.
Patients receive two weeks of treatment (prefrontal high-frequency and bilateral low-frequency rTMS vs. prefrontal high-frequency and bilateral high-frequency rTMS). After two weeks of treatment they can decide if they want to quit the treatment or if they want to procede with the treatment for another two weeks.
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 contractile properties or/and neurological adaptation. However, the potential effects of WBV on leg muscle stiffness in stroke rehabilitation remains unknown. The overall aim is to investigate the effects of whole body vibration (WBV) on leg muscle stiffness and Hoffman reflex (H-reflex) and ...
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...
Pelvic ring fractures in the elderly are associated with high morbidity during standard conservative treatment due to immobility. Furthermore the risk of long term dependence even after the fracture has united is high. In analogy to the treatment of hip fractures in a similar patient population, patients might benefit from surgical treatment due to a reduction in pain and early mobilization.
The wearable vibration device aims to consistently deliver vibrations directly to the hip and spine and allowing use during many everyday activities. We propose that demonstrating higher rates of compliance and consistent delivery of optimal force, with accelerometer feedback, will provide a superior alternative to whole body vibration and is plausibly more effective at preventing bone loss in postmenopausal women than vibration platforms in the home setting.
