Given that occupational exposure to vibration leads to well-known unfavorable effects, the book is also dedicated to potential risks, hazards and contra-indications and of course, the application of vibration therapy in a number of specific conditions is presented in a clinically usable fashion.
Given its breadth of coverage, this book will be of interest to physiotherapists and exercise scientists, but also to a wider range of physicians working in the field of rehabilitation.
Jörn Rittweger has been a pioneer in the study of vibration as an exercise modality. For the past 20 years, he has been studying the mechanical and physiological effects of vibration, as well as its suitability in preventive and rehabilitative medicine and athletics. As an MD with specialization in physiology, he bridges the gap between fundamental research and clinical application. His primary affiliation is with the German Aerospace Center (DLR), where he heads the ‘Muscle and Bone Metabolism’ department of the DLR’s Institute of Aerospace Medicine. His secondary affiliation is with the University of Cologne, where he is a full professor at the Department of Pediatric and Adolescent Medicine. Dr. Rittweger has published more than 200 scientific articles in peer-reviewed journals, currently holds one patent, and regularly offers training for young scientists and doctors in human physiology.
