Studies and reports

Human activity cause earth vibrations, which propagate in the ground as high-frequency seismic waves. Stop of this activity before COVID-19 pandemic and the biggest lockdown in human history in March-May 2020 period influence on reduction of anthropogenic seismic noise (ASS) by 50%, an event never seen before on such a scale. That seismic silencing, biggest […]

The aim of the study conducted by the Polish researchers was to identify the optimum parameters of vibrotherapy, such as frequency, duration of treatment and body position, which can be an effective form of regeneration after intense and prolonged physical exertion. Statistical analysis was performed using Statistica 13. The study was approved by the Bioethics […]

In rheumatoid arthritis (RA), functional capacity is often impaired and patients are forced to lead sedentary lifestyles; in addition, they often take medication with negative effects on bone mass. Researchers at the South African public university in Johannesburg therefore investigated the effects of whole body vibration (WBV) therapy, considered a passive substitute for physical activity, […]

During the first year after spinal cord injury, an electrophysiological index – the so-called Hoffmann reflex depression (H) – gradually disappears. This index is used to study the function of neuronal pathways and, in the case of spinal cord injury, reflects the reorganisation of its interneurons after the loss of descending inhibition from the cortex. […]

The elderly need an appropriate rehabilitation program and physioprophylaxis so the aging process went off in a satisfactory way. Vibration training uses a vibrational mechanical stimulus which affects metabolic processes and health like other forms of physical activity. The aim of the study was to evaluate the effect of 30 vibration treatments on body fat, […]

A study of the effect of vibrotherapy, applied in the supine position (vibration carrier: RAM Vitberg+ apparatus, Metabolism module, F Metabolism programme), on the lipid metabolism of the human body. The aim of the study was to indicate the interdependence of the components of the lipid profile, as a factor influencing the condition of the […]

Knee degeneration is a common orthopaedic condition that affects millions of people worldwide. Although these degenerations are often associated with ageing, they can also occur in younger people for a variety of reasons. In this article, we will discuss the causes, symptoms and available treatments for knee degeneration. Causes of knee osteoarthritis The causes of […]

Insomnia affects many people. Although non-pharmacological therapies, compared to pharmacotherapy, can produce long-term improvement with reduced risk of side effects, options for non-pharmacological treatment of insomnia are limited. Recently, research on the effects of rocking and mechanical whole-body vibration (WBV) on sleep has begun. Inspiration came from the everyday reality of car or train travel […]

Swedish researchers from the Department of Orthopedics at Sahlgrenska University Hospital examined blood flow in the vessels of the tibialis anterior muscle when vibration is applied to the foot. They tested photoplethysmography (PPG), a method that has been used before (this is 2003) to study flows, but not in the context of vibration exposure, which […]

Increased and prolonged physical exertion often causes delayed muscle soreness (“soreness”). This is caused by the development of inflammatory processes in response to mechanical damage to skeletal muscle. Muscle efficiency then decreases, and muscle mass and strength may also be reduced. Researchers from the University of Physical Education in Krakow, analyzing the concentrations of selected […]
