Details and patient eligibility

About

In this study compare different frequencies of whole body vibration training on physical function and muscle strength in patients with knee osteoarthritis.

Full description

This randomized controlled trial is to compare different frequencies of whole-body vibration (WBV) training on physical function and quadriceps muscle strength in patients with knee osteoarthritis and further will be researched which frequencies are effective for knee OA patients and how much WBV training is useful modality for knee osteoarthritic patients. This research will have significant effects in improving muscle strength and functional level of knee OA patients.
