Result of whole body vibration on Kinesthsia (sum of all kinesthetic input)

Go through the following article by Dolny DG et al (2008):
WBV platforms produce frequencies ranging from 15-60 Hz and vertical displacements from ~1-11 mm, resulting in accelerations of ~2.2-5.1 g.
1. With WBV training, younger fit subjects may not experience gains unless some type of external load is added to WBV exercise.
2. However, sedentary and elderly individuals have demonstrated significant gains in most measures of muscle performance, similar with comparable traditional resistance exercise training programs.
3. WBV training also has demonstrated gains in flexibility in younger athletic populations and gains or maintenance in bone mineral density in postmenopausal women.
4. Acute exposure to WBV in sports persons has produced mixed results in terms of improving jump, sprint, and measures of muscle performance.
