Abstract

The vibrating platforms are machines that promote rhythmic movements of body vibration, which can promote beneficial physiological effects to the body depending on the methodology used. For clinical use in small animals, it is necessary to determine the effects on musculoskeletal tissue and internal organs. Thus, this study aims to evaluate the effects of the vibrating platform on the skeletal muscle tissue, kidneys and liver in healthy dogs. At least 10 medium size or large size dogs clinically healthy will be used. The dogs will be submitted to platform test, without rest, with a frequency of 30 Hz for 5 minutes, followed by an increase on frequency of 50 Hz for 5 minutes, and will finish on a frequency of 30 Hz for 5 minutes, every 24 hours during five days. Infrared thermography and microvasculature of the quadriceps muscles and dopplerfluxometry of the femoral artery will be assessed before and immediately after platform test during 5 days, and at more one different time: 72 hours after the last exam of the fifth day. The haematology and serum biochemistry will be evaluated before and immediately after the exam, and 1 hour and 6 hours after the dogs have been submitted to the platform test during 5 days, and at more two different times: 24 and 48 hours after the last exam of the fifth day. The data will be analyzed statically using the paired t-test and variance analysis for repeated measures. Differences will be significant with p < 0.05. (AU)
