Whole body vibration training (WBVT) has been used as a supplement to conventional exercise training such as resistance exercise training to improve skeletal muscle strength, specifically, in rehabilitation field. Recently, this exercise modality has been utilized by cardiovascular studies to examine whether WBVT can be a useful exercise modality to improve cardiovascular health. These studies reported that WBVT has not only beneficial effects on muscular strength but also cardiovascular health in elderly and disease population. However, its mechanism un-derlying the beneficial effects of WBVT in cardiovascular health has not been well documented. Therefore, this review highlighted the im-pacts of WBVT on cardiovascular health, and its mechanisms in con-junction with the improved muscular strength and body composition in various populations.
