Reducing Neuromuscular Weakness in Hospitalized Patients

Study Description

Testing of a New Therapeutic Vibration Device to Reduce Neuromuscular Weakness in Hospitalized Patients

Objective: Test the ability of vibration to produce physiologic, biochemical, and anatomic changes consistent with exercise that would help prevent the development of muscle weakness that occurs when patients are immobile for long periods of time.

Diagnostic Test - Therapeutic Vibration Device

The Therapeutic Vibration Device is capable of applying force through the axial skeletal spine, through bidirectional compression loading (or prestressing) between the shoulder and the plantar surfaces of the feet. It is placed around the body like a mobile frame so that the applied vibration can affect the whole body. The vibration actuators (drivers) are mobile and can vary in size, frequency response, and force. The design minimizes the possibility of mechanical interference for ventilated/in ...read more on ClinicalTrials.org
