Long-Term Effects of Whole-Body Vibration in Trained Adolescent Swimmers: Does It Increase Strength, Power, and Swimming Performance?

Muniz-Pardos B, Gómez-Bruton A, Matute-Llorente Á, González-Agüero A, Gómez-Cabello A, Casajús JA, Vicente-Rodríguez G

To examine the effects of a 6-month whole-body vibration (WBV) training on lower-body strength (LBS), lower-body power (LBP), and swimming performance in adolescent trained swimmers. Thirty-seven swimmers (23 males and 14 females; 14.8 [1.3] y) were randomly assigned to the WBV (n = 20) or the control group (n = 17)....

Acute effects of whole-body vibration training on neuromuscular performance and mobility in hypoxia and normoxia in persons with multiple sclerosis: A crossover study.

Andreu L, Ramos-Campo DJ, Ávila-Gandía V, Freitas TT, Chung LH, Rubio-Arias JÁ

Whole-body vibration training (WBVT) has been used in people with relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis (pwMS), showing improvements in different neuromuscular and mobility variables. However, the acute effects of this training are still unknown. The acute effects of WBVT on neuromuscular performance, mobility and rating of perceived exertion (RPE) were evaluated in...

Exercise Training Modalities for People with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease.

Nolan CM, Rochester CL

Exercise training confers health benefits for people with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). This article reviews the evidence for several exercise training modalities shown to be beneficial among individuals with COPD. These modalities include aerobic, resistance, nonlinear periodized, upper limb and balance training, as well as yoga, Tai Chi, inspiratory...

Does whole body vibration therapy assist in reducing fat mass or treating obesity in healthy overweight and obese adults? A systematic review and meta-analyses.

Alavinia SM, Omidvar M, Craven BC

This review describes the effects of Whole Body Vibration therapy (WBV) for reducing fat mass (%/kg) among healthy (no comorbid disease) overweight and obese adults. Systematic literature search was conducted using Medline, Embase, Cochrane, CINAHL, and PubMed databases up to 27 March 2019. Studies evaluating the effects of WBV therapy...

Metabolic effect of bodyweight whole-body vibration in a 20-min exercise session: A crossover study using verified vibration stimulus.

Milanese C, Cavedon V, Sandri M, Tam E, Piscitelli F, Boschi F, Zancanaro C

The ability of whole body vibration (WBV) to increase energy expenditure (EE) has been investigated to some extent in the past using short-term single exercises or sets of single exercises. However, the current practice in WBV training for fitness is based on the execution of multiple exercises during a WBV...

Effects of whole-body vibration training frequency on neuromuscular performance: a randomized controlled study.

Karatrantou K, Bilios P, Bogdanis GC, Ioakimidis P, Soulas E, Gerodimos V

This study compared the efficacy of two whole-body vibration (WBV) protocols with equal training volume and different frequency of training sessions/week on body composition and physical fitness. Sixty male air force cadets (age: 20.5±1.4 years) were randomly assigned to a lower frequency (Lf-WBV), a higher frequency (Hf-WBV) or a control...

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...

Sclerostin and parathyroid hormone responses to acute whole-body vibration and resistance exercise in young women.

Sharma-Ghimire P, Chen Z, Sherk V, Bemben M, Bemben D

Whole-body vibration (WBV) has been shown to improve bone mineral density, and muscle strength and power. No studies to date have examined sclerostin and parathyroid hormone (PTH) responses to WBV combined with resistance exercise (RE). This randomized crossover study compared acute serum sclerostin and PTH responses to RE and WBV + RE...

Effects of Single or Multiple Sessions of Whole Body Vibration in Stroke: Is There Any Evidence to Support the Clinical Use in Rehabilitation?

Costantino C, Petraglia F, Sabetta LL, Giumelli R

Recently new technologies and new techniques, such as Whole Body Vibration (WBV), have been introduced by the health and fitness industry to pursue therapeutic or physical performance goals. The aim of this systematic review is to investigate the effectiveness of single or multiple WBV sessions alone or in association with...
