The use of machines that employ mechanical vibrations that transmit stimuli to the whole body through a gravitational load to the neuromuscular system increases muscular grip strength and body balance. Oxygen consumption (VO2) wase valuated using mechanical vibration platforms in healthy individuals to check their caloric expenditure compared to other forms of physical exercise and to determine its impact on the control of body overweight. 42 men aged20.28 ± 2.9 years, height 171.35 ± 7.01 cm, weight 67.47 ± 8.75 kg were measured. The Modified Bruce test wasapplied to assess VO2 max and a Bioshaker® Compact® model vibrating platform. Each subject remained for15min in a static position at a vibration of 2,500 cycles per minute, recording VO2 at 5, 10 and 15 min of the test.VO2 max. it was 3.01 ± 0.4 L/min, while on the vibrating platform it was 1.03 ± 0.33. The use of vibration platformsgenerates limited energy expenditure to create significant changes in body weight and consumption of ...
