710 elderly females were randomized to either receive low magnitude high-frequency vibration (LMHFV) or a control to investigate the efficacy of LMHFV in fracture prevention. Patients were monitored over 18 months based on fall and fracture rates, muscle performance, and bone quality. The evidence presented in this study demonstrated that LMHFV resulted in a significantly lower rate of fall and fr...
