The effect of whole body vibration on lower extremity skin blood flow in normal subjects

The effect of whole body vibration on lower extremity skin blood flow in normal subjects

Abstract:Circulation plays a vital role in tissue healing. Increases in muscle flexibility and strength, secretion of hormones important in the regeneration and repair process, blood flow, and strength of bone tissues have been attributed to Whole Body Vibration combined with exercise. The purpose of the study was to determine the effects of short-duration, high-intensity, isometric weight bearing exercise and vibration only on skin blood flow. The study findings suggest that short duration vibration alone significantly increases circulation; doubling mean circulation for a minimum of 10 minutes following intervention.Conclusion:The emerging therapeutic modality of Whole Body Vibration as a passive intervention appears to increase circulation in individuals with healthy microcirculation.
