Whole Body Vibration as an intervention in physical and mental health

Due to the current Covid-19 situation we unfortunately have to cancel the 4th International WAVEX Meeting.

New date for the meeting will be 19-21 May 2021 DLR, Cologne, Germany

iWAVEX 2020 Conference brings together researchers and companies interested in the use of whole body vibration in physical and mental health. Fundamental as well as applied research are important topics, next to new developments in equipment and protocols in how to apply whole body vibration.

This meeting will focus on the application of the current knowledge while utilizing technological advancements. Fundamental as well as applied research are being presented as well as new developments in equipment and protocols in how to apply whole body vibration.

iWAVEX conference researchers are interested in the potential of whole body vibration (WBV) for physical and cognitive health. During WBV a vibration source (usually a platform) transfers mechanical vibrations to the body of a subject standing or sitting on that platform.
