Abstract: Whole body vibration training (WBV) involves standing or exercising on a vibrating platform. WBV has been suggested to benefit bone strength and neuromuscular function, so could potentially reduce risk of fracture by preventing falls as well as increasing bone strength. Whilst some potential has been demonstrated, findings have been mixed, perhaps in part due to the variation in vibration interventions that have been delivered and the groups of participants studied.
