Hypotheses of this study are
1. Bone myoregulation reflex (BMR) inhibits presynaptically H-reflex during whole-body
2. Cooling of ankle abolishes the inhibitor effect of BMR on soleus H-reflex Aim of this
study is to test these hypotheses.
Methods: This study will be conducted on 10 healthy young adult males. WBV will be applied at
35 Hz frequencies with 2 mm amplitudes. Cold pack will be applied the right ankle for 20
minutes. The right soleus T-reflex will be recorded before WBV, during WBV, during cooling of
the right ankle, and during WBV respectively.
