Studies and reports

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 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 […]

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 […]

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. […]
