Vibrosphere® Scientific Abstracts at Eular 2010
We are pleased to finally present the two scientific Vibrosphere® abstracts ”Effects of original rehabilitation programs in patients with fibromyalgia syndrome” and “Effects of an original training program in healthy elderly subjects” by Dr D. Maquet et al, University Hospital Centre Liege, Belgium, presented at the EULAR congress in Rome, June 16-19, 2010.
The fibromyalgia study which incorporates 10 women showed that the Vibrosphere® training program was effective and that the balance and physical functions in FM patients improved. The study results show that at the end of the training program physical functions (Chair Rising Test, Endurance Test, One Leg Balance Test and 24 h energy expenditure) had improved significantly (p<0.05) in patients with FM.
The second study encompassing 12 elderly persons showed that the training on the Vibrosphere was effective in improving balance and physical functions. The elderly showed a significant improvement of performances (p<0.001) in the Timed Up and Go Test, One-Leg Balance Test and Chair Rising Test.
