||Daily occupational exposure to whole-body vibration during a whole working life can result in degenerative changes in the lumbar spine. However, whole-body vibration training can be used to increase muscle strength and bone mineral density, and to enhance the physical quality of life of elderly. As opposed to the broad-band vibrations of machines, the training devices generate vibrations with a single frequency of between 15 et 45Hz. The effects of whole-body vibration training exercises have been measured. In order to obtain positive effects, the vibration exercises should last only a few minutes and the training should not take place each day and only over a period of a few months.
