    • Whole-body vibration training induces hypertrophy of the human patellar tendon 

      Rieder, Florian; Wiesinger, Hans-Peter; Kösters, Alexander; Müller, Erich; Seynnes, Olivier R. (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2015-07-15)
      Animal studies suggest that regular exposure to whole-body vibration (WBV) induces an anabolic response in bone and tendon. However, the effects of this type of intervention on human tendon properties and its influence on ...
