Abstract: Reviews evidence for the effects of whole-body vibration (WBV) on physiologic and functional outcomes of children with cerebral palsy (CP). Based on 6 studies (176 patients) comparing WBV to exercise and/or control finds that WBV results in improvement in gait speed, gross motor function dimension E and femur bone density. Meta-analysis also showed a nonsignificant difference in muscle strength and gross motor function dimension D. Concludes that WBV could be considered for inclusion in rehabilitation programs.
