  • Body balance [ Time Frame: at six months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Body balance will be evaluated using Tinetti Test, and Timed up and go test
  • Muscle performance [ Time Frame: at 6 weeks, and 6 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    It will be evaluated by five-sit-to-stand test, and Smartcoach Encoder.
  • Number of falls [ Time Frame: during 6 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Fall: an unexpected event in which the participants come to rest on the ground, floor, or lower level.
  • Safety of interventions [ Time Frame: During 6 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

Whole-body Vibration Training in Older People
Neuromuscular Training With Whole Body Vibration in Older People: A Randomized Multicentre Clinical Trial With Blinded to Evaluator

This is a randomized, multicentre, and parallel clinical trial with blinded to evaluator.

The principal hypothesis is that whole-body vibration training plus exercise improves the body balance and prevents falls more than only exercise training in institutionalized older people. The number needed of patients is 160 (80 per group).

Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Single Blind (Outcomes Assessor)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Aging
  • Device: Exercise with Whole-body vibration platform
    The participants will perform static/dynamic exercises (balance and resistance training) on a vibratory platform (Frequency: 30-35 Hz; Amplitude: 2-4 mm).
    Other Name: Power Plate® Whole-body vibration platform
  • Other: Exercise
    The participants will perform the same static/dynamic exercises (balance and resistance training) like WBV group but without the vibration stimuli.
    Other Name: Balance and resistance training
  • Experimental: Exercise with Whole-body vibration platform
    Exercise with Whole-body vibration (WBV) platform (Power Plate®). The participants will perform static/dynamic exercises (balance and resistance training) on a vibratory platform (Frequency: 30-35 Hz; Amplitude: 2-4 mm). Training volume and intensity we will increase systematically over six weeks according to the overload principle.
    Intervention: Device: Exercise with Whole-body vibration platform
  • Active Comparator: Exercise
    The participants will perform the same static/dynamic exercises (balance and resistance training) like WBV group but without the vibration stimuli, during a six weeks training period (3sessions/week). Training volume and intensity we will increase systematically over six weeks according to the overload principle
    Intervention: Other: Exercise
