McGee-Lawrence from Augusta University in Georgia, US.

Further, the method also increased bone formation, suggesting longer-term treatments could hold promise for preventing bone loss as well, Lawrence added.

For the study, published in the Endocrine Society’s journal Endocrinology, the team examined two groups of five-week-old male mice who were assigned to sedentary, whole-body vibration or treadmill exercise conditions.

One group consisted of normal mice, while the other group was genetically unresponsive to the hormone leptin – responsible for promoting feelings of fullness after eating.

The results suggest that whole-body vibration may be a useful supplemental therapy to combat metabolic dysfunction in individuals with morbid obesity.
