Abstract in Portuguese
O objetivo do presente estudo foi investigar o efeito do treinamento de vibração na força e na potência musculares a 60º.s-1 e a 180º.s-1 e na funcionalidade de idosos. Participaram do estudo quarenta e sete idosos que já freqüentavam um programa de exercícios físicos. Os sujeitos foram divididos em dois grupos: grupo experimental (GE) (n=24, 70.7±5.8 anos, 62.7±12.3 kg e 155.9±8.0 cm ) e grupo controle (GC) (n=23, 70.0±5.7 anos, 65.3±10.7 kg e 157.9±6.6 cm). Adicionalmente ao programa de exercícios físicos, o GE realizou o treinamento de vibração durante 13 semanas, sendo 2 vezes por semana, enquanto que o GC continuou apenas com o programa regular de exercícios físicos. O treinamento de vibração não foi efetivo em melhorar força, potência e o desempenho nos testes funcionais dos idosos. No entanto, encontramos efeito de tempo para os testes de força dos flexores de cotovelo, distância percorrida no teste de caminhada de 6 minutos e redução no tempo para realizar o percurso no teste de agilidade/equilíbrio. Concluindo, o treinamento vibratório não foi efetivo em melhorar a funcionalidade de idosos fisicamente ativos

Abstract in English
The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of a whole body vibration training program in the knee extensors isokinetic peak torque and average power, and in functional tests of physically active elderly. Forty seven elderly, whom participated of a training program for the elderly, were recruited. The subjects were divided into two groups; the whole body vibration group (TV) (n=24, 70.7±5.8 years, 62.7±12.3 kg e 155.9±8.0 cm ) and the control group (GC) (n=23. 70.0±5.7 years, 65.3±10.7 kg e 157.9±6.6 cm). The TV performed the whole body vibration exercises and their regular training program for 13 weeks, 2 x per week, while the GC performed the regular training program only. The TV was not effect in increasing both isokinetic peak torque and average power. On the other hand, their regular training program was effective in increasing elbow flexors strength endurance, distance covered in the 6 min walk test, and in speed in the time up and go test. As a conclusion, TV was not effective in improving physically active elderly functionality
