The use of vibration as a training intervention has been suggested for more than a decade. Following the initial promising studies, a large number of investigations have been conducted to understand the acute and chronic effects of this novel training modality mainly using special populations, sedentary, physically active, and aged individuals. There is a small number of studies involving athletes. For this reason it is at the moment very difficult to provide safe and effective training guidelines to athletes. We discuss the current findings related to the effectiveness on elite athletes and provide some guidance on practical applications. Vibration is without a doubt an interesting intervention; however, more needs to be done to understand the physiological mechanisms involved in the adaptive responses to vibration exercise. Furthermore, more studies are needed to establish a dose-response relationship to vibration training to provide indications on safe and effective vibration training prescriptions.

. Conclusions from the primary analysis also indicate that this CAI cohort have an inability to dampen forces during gait termination, 23 indicating limitations in force modulation across gait-related activities. Limitations in force modulation appear to continue across the stages of degeneration as those with

in the neuromuscular responses of the right and left limbs during bilateral muscle actions that suggests force modulation is controlled by common drive from the central nervous system that mitigates differences in neuromuscular responses between limbs. The concept of common drive can be demonstrated

, previous studies have shown that it is possible to modulate SMT forces and that manual therapists can retain the motor skill related to force modulation for at least 12 weeks of no SMT training. 14 This allows for the possibility of training manual therapists to apply forces with specific characteristics

determining the dynamic force modulation of the gloves by the adult (a) as the child was being stabilized, and (b) as the child prepared to initiate their first step by shifting the CoM in AP and ML directions. Lastly, we identified an “initiation phase,” in which the adult released the hands from contact

& Christou, 2011 ). In a rhythmic force task, behavioral complexity conversely increases with age ( Vaillancourt & Newell, 2003 ; Vaillancourt et al., 2004 ). Contrary to the static force tasks, cyclic force modulation requires direct visuomotor coupling to coordinate motor output with an oscillatory visual

According to Fitts ( 1954 ), increased ID requires more information to be processed. Moreover, under the place condition, fine adjustments of force modulation and spatial accuracy are
