Randomized controlled trial of vacuum therapy for intermittent claudication.

Hageman D, Fokkenrood HJP, van Deursen BAC, Gommans LNM, Cancrinus E, Scheltinga MRM, Teijink JAW

The “gold standard” treatment of intermittent claudication (IC) is supervised exercise therapy (SET). Intermittent vacuum therapy (IVT) has recently been promoted as an additional treatment of IC. During IVT, negative pressure and atmospheric pressure are alternatingly applied to the lower extremities, possibly resulting in improved circulation. The aim of this...

Acute Effects of Whole-Body Vibration on the Postural Organization of Gait Initiation in Young Adults and Elderly: A Randomized Sham Intervention Study.

Delafontaine A, Vialleron T, Fischer M, Laffaye G, Chèze L, Artico R, Genêt F, Fourcade PC, Yiou E

Whole-body vibration (WBV) is a training method that exposes the entire body to mechanical oscillations while standing erect or seated on a vibrating platform. This method is nowadays commonly used by clinicians to improve specific motor outcomes in various sub-populations such as elderly and young healthy adults, either sedentary or...

Whole body vibration on people with sequelae of polio.

Da Silva CP, Szot CL, deSa N

The purpose was to explore the feasibility of whole body vibration (WBV) on polio survivors with/without post-polio syndrome (PPS) by studying its effects on walking speed (10-m walk test), endurance (2-min walk test), pain severity/interference (Brief Pain Inventory [BPI]), sleep quality (Pittsburg Sleep Quality Index), fatigue (Fatigue Severity Scale), leg...

Whole-body vibration improves ankle spasticity, balance, and walking ability in individuals with incomplete cervical spinal cord injury.

In T, Jung K, Lee MG, Cho HY

This study aimed to investigate the effects of whole-body vibration (WBV) training on ankle spasticity, balance, and walking ability in patients with incomplete spinal cord injury (iSCI) at cervical level. Twenty-eight patients with cervical iSCI were randomly assigned to WBV (n = 14) or control group (n = 14). WBV group received WBV training,...

Combined effects of whole body vibration and unstable shoes on balance measures in older adults: A randomized clinical trial.

Sobhani S, Sinaei E, Motealleh A, Hooshyar F, Kashkooli NS, Yoosefinejad AK

The purpose of this study was to compare the efficacy of 4 weeks of whole body vibration training on balance in older adults who word two different types of shoes: unstable (unstable group) versus standard shoes (stable group). Randomized, single-blind clinical trial. Seventy eight eligible older adults were initially enrolled;...

Comparison of Single-Session Dose Response Effects of Whole Body Vibration on Spasticity and Walking Speed in Persons with Spinal Cord Injury.

Estes S, Iddings JA, Ray S, Kirk-Sanchez NJ, Field-Fote EC

Spasticity affects approximately 65% of persons with spinal cord injury (SCI) and negatively impacts function and quality of life. Whole body vibration (WBV) appears to reduce spasticity and improve walking function; however, the optimal dose (frequency/duration) is not known. We compared single-session effects of four different WBV frequency/duration dose conditions...

Promoting post-stroke recovery through focal or whole body vibration: criticisms and prospects from a narrative review.

Celletti C, Suppa A, Bianchini E, Lakin S, Toscano M, La Torre G, Di Piero V, Camerota F

Several focal muscle vibration (fMV) and whole body vibration (WBV) protocols have been designed to promote brain reorganization processes in patients with stroke. However, whether fMV and WBV should be considered helpful tools to promote post-stroke recovery remains still largely unclear. We here achieve a comprehensive review of the application...
