In a nutshell: This randomised controlled trial tested whole body vibration exercises compared to usual care and exercises for 8 weeks, to see how they compared in tests of general health, balance, mobility and knee extensor strength. The vibration exercises were found to be able to improve each area of testing, meaning that they could be a valuable tool in preventing falls.
