In past decades the number of exercising individuals and the area of sports medicine have grown considerably.
Sports medicine has developed both in terms of its clinical importance with appropriate diagnosis and adequate rehabilitation
following injury as well as its potential role in the promotion of health and prevention of life-style diseases
in individuals of all ages.

Vibration training and vibration therapy, also known as whole body
vibration (WBV), biomechanical stimulation (BMS), and biomechanical
oscillation (BMO) date back to ancient Greece. Recently, vibration training
has been reinvented as a new form of exercise that is becoming more
frequently used to improve muscle strength, power and flexibility as well
as coordination. Increasingly, WBV can be encountered in different wellness,
fitness and rehabilitation centres as well as medical centres.
