The 3rd International WAVEX Conference: The World Association of Vibration Exercise Experts will be held at the CHU-Université de Reims Champagne-Ardenne, France, August 29-31, 2019.
The objective of this meeting is to bring together researchers and companies interested in the use of whole body vibration in physical and Cognitive Engineering research. Fundamental as well as applied research are important topics, next to new developments in equipment and protocols in how to apply whole body vibration.
iWAVEX is a world association of all researchers interested in the potential of whole body vibration (WBV) for physical and mental health. During WBV a vibration source (usually a platform) transfers mechanical vibrations to the body of a subject standing or sitting on that platform. Numerous studies on WBV exist examining the potential harms of undergoing strong and erratic vibrations (the so-called bad vibrations). However, another side of WBV are the mild vibrations, around 30 Hz and with limited amplitude (low-intensity vibrations). These could be considered as “good vibrations”. As the “bad vibrations” are potentially around the corner when applying WBV, one of the aims of this conference is to start setting up guidelines for safe and optimal use of WBV. Another aim of the conference is to inform each other about the newest developments in the field, and to share new ideas and insights.
The three-day conference will start with tutorials. The tutorials will be held on August 29, 2019. Tutorials will be offered only half-day at introductory, intermediate, and advanced levels covering the entire spectrum of the conference. All Parallel Sessions will run August 30-31, 2019.
