Details and patient eligibility


Introduction: Diabetes Mellitus (DM) is an important health condition of the population and its prevalence continues to grow due to population aging, economic development and urbanization. The exercise is an important factor of prevention and control, thereby decreasing the risk of metabolic diseases, cardiovascular diseases and improving the functionality of the patient with diabetes. Objective: Evaluate the response of resistance training associated with whole-body vibration on peripheral circulation and functional performance of elderly with type 2 diabetes. Methods: This is a clinical trial study, controlled, randomized and blinded, which will follow the guidelines established by the Consolidated Standards of Reporting Trials (CONSORT). Patients will be recruited in the light of the eligibility criteria and randomly divided into 3 groups: resistance training associated with whole body vibration (G1), resistance training associated with vibration sham (G2) and control group-guidelines about foot care (GC), establishing 36 treatment sessions, three times a week for the G1 and G2.

Inclusion criteria

  • Present overweight or obese class I, with BMI between 25.00 and 34.99 kg/m2 (WHO, 2009)
  • Be functionally independent
  • Having cognitive ability to respond and perform the exercisesevaluated by Mini-Mental State examination (MMSE), prepared by Folstein et al. (1975) and translation/modification proposed by Lawrence and van Heerden (2006), using as a bridge to cut to illiterate individuals = 19 points (BRAZIL, 2006)

  • Do not use locomotion auxiliary equipment

Exclusion criteria

  • Change in the drug program in during the research

Trial design

Primary purpose




Interventional model

Parallel Assignment


Triple Blind

60 participants in 3 patient groups

Resistance training associated with vibration
Experimental group
The workout will be held three times a week and will last a total of 12 weeks (3 months) for 45 minutes.
Other: Resistance training associated with vibration
Resistance training associated with sham
Sham Comparator group
The workout will be held three times a week and will last a total of 12 weeks (3 months) for 45 minutes, where there will be 5 minutes of heating, 19 minutes of exercise with load, 16 minutes of vibration "sham" and 5 minutes of slowdown. The vibration sham; will be held with the disconnected platform. A device will be connected producing a noise similar to the sound of the connected platform for a time equivalent to the treatment protocol, since it will not be possible to distinguishing noticeably stimulate vibrator. Participants that will undergo false vibration will not have contact with those who carry out the real treatment.
Other: Resistance training associated with vibration sham
Control group
No Intervention group
Will not be submitted to any physical intervention. It continues in your daily life with only monitoring via phone callings. Guidelines about foot care.
