An athlete who takes part in various types of competition should feel rested and relaxed, and should not feel fatigue resulting from intense physical activity. For this reason, scientists are looking for more and more new methods that affect faster post-workout regeneration, both physically and mentally.The aim of the Polish researchers from the University of […]

Obesity is one of the diseases of civilisation in the 21st century and is defined as an excessive accumulation of body fat. There is no doubt that such a condition is dangerous and has a negative impact on the functioning of the entire body. People with obesity are at greater risk of developing other diseases […]

The research project described here was carried out at Rasool-e-Akram Hospital. Forty-three women referred by a gynaecologist after primary clinical assessment participated. The study was designed as a randomised clinical trial. The women were randomly allocated to two groups: with vibrotherapy and with a pelvic floor muscle strengthening exercise programme. The aim of the study […]

The aim of the Taiwanese researchers was to determine whether whole-body vibration (WBV) could improve symptoms of chronic constipation of the functional constipation type (which accounts for almost 60% of all constipation cases) and associated health-related quality of life (HRQOL). The results of the presented report may be important for patients struggling with haemorrhoids (anal […]

Despite multiple preventive measures, 35.5% of cases of stage I pressure ulcers (PrU) worsen and progress to stage II or higher. This is mainly due to disturbances in the local microcirculation, which traditional PrU treatments are not best suited to deal with. Japanese researchers therefore attempted to develop a new methodology using therapeutic vibration, which, […]

Vibrotherapy can be used successfully in the rehabilitation of elderly people to counteract sarcopenia and restore muscle strength, as well as by athletes during the recovery period. When applied regularly, it improves a person’s motor properties. In most scientific papers, researchers have used vibration at frequencies of 30 to 50 Hz, lasting less than 20 […]

As part of a multistage programme of cardiac rehabilitation after myocardial infarction, there is growing interest in novel forms of rehabilitation that can effectively improve exercise tolerance and echocardiographic parameters in post-infarction patients. One potential approach is to use vibrotherapy as an adjunct to a standard rehabilitation programme. The aim of the present study was […]

Recent studies indicate that vibration therapy is an accessible, safe and positively accepted exercise method specifically designed for children and adolescents who have undergone anti-cancer treatment in a hospital setting. We are seeing a steady increase in the number of children who achieve a 15-year survival period after an oncology diagnosis. Consequently, the importance of […]

Vibrotherapy applied using local vibration to muscles at rest increases muscle strength. Such a therapeutic protocol could be beneficial for inactive people or those unable to benefit from other forms of vibrotherapy (e.g. whole-body vibrotherapy). Periods of physical inactivity adversely affect muscle strength. The use of large training equipment in a home environment is not […]

The aim of the clinical study, conducted by researchers at the University of Auckland in New Zealand, was to determine the effects of long-term (20 weeks) whole-body vibration on muscle and bone health, motor performance and quality of life in young adults with mild to moderate cerebral palsy. The effect of vibration for 20 weeks […]
