Whole body vibration, part one: what's shakin' now? by Joseph Signorile, PhD
Whole body vibration (WBV) has received considerable exposure as one of the new technical innovations in exercise. In my 2006 article “Whole body vibration training: a new wave in exercise intervention for older adults?” published in this journal, I reviewed the findings in the literature that examined the feasibility of using WBV as an intervention to address people’s needs as they age. A good deal of research has been done since that review, and this paper is intended to bring you up to date on the latest findings.
