Whole Body Vibration

Control of Human Body Movement by Neural Mismatch Model Human posture control is maintained by proprioceptive, vestibular and visual feedback integrated with in the central vestibular and locomotor system. Lesions to the sensory feedback system, or to the central nervous system, may impair postural control and equilibrium. It is therefore of interest to assess the ability of postural control by measuring the displacement of the body center of gravity. Recordings of the amplitude and frequency of spontaneous oscillations around the equilibrium position may describe the sway and thus the control of posture. [DOI:10.12866/J.PIVAA.2013.09.002]
Measurement of the transmission of vibration to the trunk and to the pelvis during locomotion
Lumped parameter mathematical models have been developed to represent body motions associated with resonances of the vertical apparent mass in different postures. This research determines primary and secondary resonances, first and second damping ratio of the human body, during walking, from measured frequency response functions at S2 and T2 levels of the human spine.
