Jahr: 2012

J Bartley, F Fatoye


The authors conducted a preliminary investigation into the possible effects of whole-body vibration on balance and walking speed in adults with learning disabilities. Participants receives 12 seven-minute session over four weeks on a Galileo vibration platform. Their balance and walking speed were compared with those of controls. Improvements in walking speed after treatment were observed but the results did not show statistical significance because of confounding factors. Whole body vibration may improve the fitness, health and wellbeing of people with learning disabilities, but warrants further investigation.
