Influence of Whole Body Vibration Compared to Conventional Physiotherapy in Patients With Gonarthrosis

40 patients with osteoarthritis of the knee will be randomly assigned to conventional physiotherapy on the one and whole body vibration exercises on the other hand. The duration of the training will be 6 weeks, three times a week.

The outcome will be measured by WOMAC and SF-12 scores relating to pain and quality of life. The second outcome criteria will be a motion analysis and balance testing before and after the training.

The follow-up is 26 weeks.
