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 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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Treatment of osteoporotic bones after fractures is difficult due to osteoporotic disorders of bone formation, angiogenesis and bone mineralization, negatively influencing the healing. Since previous preclinical (animal) studies have shown that low-magnitude high-frequency vibration (LMHFV) accelerates the healing of osteoporotic fractures, researchers at the Chinese University of Hong Kong planned to study the effect of […]

Cellulite affects approximately 85% of women over the age of 20 and 2% of men. It is characterized by atypical distribution of adipose tissue which may result from adipocytes and connective tissue metabolic disorders. Those disorders may come from genetic, hormonal, dietary or associated with low physical activity basis. Many methods of treating cellulite have […]

Due to at least economic factors, there is a growing need for effective and simple therapies for the increasingly common musculoskeletal (MSK) disorders, such as in the case of osteoporosis. Vibrotherapy seems extremely promising, at least for some patients, where therapeutic vibration (TV)* is increasingly used to improve bone structure and muscle performance. However, this […]

In the treatment of osteoporosis, among others, calcium and vitamin D supplementation, as well as physical exercise are used. Recently, a passive form of physical activity – whole-body vibration (WBV) – has gained attention in this context. Since WBV can be very beneficial in terms of ease of implementation and accessibility even for weakened patients […]

An important therapeutic element in osteoporosis is physical activity, which has a positive effect on muscle strength, balance and bone mineral density (BMD). For those who cannot perform intense exercise and do not want/ cannot use pharmacotherapy, whole-body vibration (WBV), a form of vibrotherapy, can help. WBV is an easy-to-use substitute for physical activity in […]
