Vibration is a periodic, sinusoidal and deterministic mechanical stimulus characterized by an oscillatory movement. Vibrations are also generated through a vibrating platform when there is a direct contact of a person, usually standing in the base of this type of equipment. The vibration that is produced in these machines is transmitted to the body of the subject, producing stimuli of whole body vibration (WBV) [1, 2].
