What does the traffic light report for whole body vibration?

-gross motor goal: yellow over worth it line, half way up to green (1-3 RCTs)

-tone management: just above worth it line (1-3 RCTs)

2

According to the systematic study what does one session of whole body vibration do? (3 things)

(Ritzmann 2018)

1. Reduces reflex excitability

2. Reduces spasticity

3. Reduces coordination deficits

3

What positive effects does whole body vibration have? And what long term?

(Ritzmann 2018)

Positive effect on

-ability to move
-strength
-gait
-mobility

Long term?
-reduce muscle tone + spasticity
-improve mobility

4

What changes are there in the muscles immediately after vibration?

(Ritzmann 2018)

Antagonise- muscle activity

5

Vibration therapy triggers what two types of stimulation? And what does it do in these?

(Ritzmann 2018)

Sensory stimulation: muscle spindles, golgi-tendon organ join receptors

Mechanical stimulation: Dampening of vibration stimulus by muscle-tendon complex and rhythmic joint movement

6

Vibration therapy helps patients with CP to master daily life challenges primarily through:


(Ritzmann 2018)

Facilitation of movement quality
