Abstract:

The results of a research program on the influence of high intensity, intermediate duration, low-frequency wholebody vibration on the cardiovascular system are described. Areas of activity have included the study of in vivo transendothelial albumin transport, in vitro transendothelial cholesterol transport in the presence of oscillatory flow conditions, regional blood flow distribution, aortic pressure and velocity wave forms this has included the development of a pulsed ultrasonic doppler velocimeter for noninvasive flow measurements, and aortic lipid deposition. In these studies, the more subtle aspects of the effect of low frequency, wholebody vibration have been examined from the viewpoint of relationships that may exist between the physiological and fluid mechanical aspects of cardiovascular phenomena.
