Effects of Vibroacoustics on Skin Blood Flow in the Arm

“Conclusions: Five minutes of 30 Hz or 50 Hz vibration produced significant increases in (skin blood flow) SBF. Clinically, 50 Hz has additional benefits because SBF increased more rapidly and did not result in vasoconstriction during the recovery period. Future studies should be done to determine if these increases in SBF could be of benefit to populations with low circulation such as those with diabetes.”
