Abstract

Although the addition of whole-body vibration to squat training failed to result in a significant improvement in functional performance and self-reported status of knee osteoarthritis in the elderly, the intragroup results suggest that whole-body vibration may represent a feasible and effective way of improving the functionality and self-perception of disease status in older adults with knee OA.
