Amplitude (mm or cm) the extent of the vertical displacement
Frequency (Hz) number of impulses delivered per second
Magnitude (G) the acceleration power
Duration (sec. or min.) the amount of time one spends on the apparatus
Immediate Short-Term Effect of WBV Muscle strength and power
Immediate Short-Term Effect of WBV Motor performance
Immediate Short-Term Effect of WBV Other measures,Hormone concentrations, Cardiovascular changes
