Abstract

Vibration has been increasingly sought after as new technique, due to its potential to increase muscle strength and positively affect bone remodeling. Currently, there are many vibration devices on the market advertised for different applications, in particular in sports and rehabilitation. All the available devices have two major drawbacks; firstly, they are not sufficiently adaptive to the individual user's needs and secondly, they do not require any force input from the user. Our novel vibration device addresses these drawbacks with new mechanical design and bringing innovative approach to 'how it operates'.
