Centro di ricerca AM-En

The AM Center is an important Human Behavior Research Center that has involved more than 45,000 people so far. Thanks to a successful collaboration with Italian universities and research institutes, today it is a major reference point for the scientific world.

The Center has an ongoing relationship with renowned research centers, such as CNR, the University of Milan, the Vita-Salute San Raffaele University and many more.

The sole of the foot is an area with an abundance of high-sensitivity proprioceptors, exteroceptors and mechanoreceptors. The combination of stimuli from the sole of the foot have a powerful impact on rapid reactivity (maximum intensity and short duration of response) and central information about the positioning of the body in space. The rapid response is determined by the functional anatomical structure of the tendons, which determine the elastic response of the explosive force.
The stimulus from the sole of the foot reaches into the cerebral cortex, influences the postural appearance and makes the body perceive its physical state as it relates to the surrounding environment. The plantar reflex works by centrally stimulating the large areas of sensory and motor control formed in the cerebral cortex by the homunculus of both static and dynamic posture.

SUMMARY

Objective: The purpose of this study was to assess the effects of a multifocal vibrating (MFV) Keope GPR ergonomic structure on the neuromuscular and postural system in healthy subjects.

Materials and Methods: Thirty volunteers (sixteen males and fourteen females, aged 19-25) underwent an electromyography (EMG) and a stabilometric test before a global proprioceptive resonance session using multi focal vibrations, repeating the same tests immediately after multifocal vibrations.

Results: The effects of Keope GPR on the surface electromyography of the masseter and anterior temporal muscles showed statistically significant changes in the masseter muscle (p<0.05). Significant effects were also highlighted in postural and stabilometric tests (p <0.05).

Conclusions: In this preliminary study, multifocal vibration induced changes in both neuromuscular and postural tests. Further future studies should focus on assessing the effects on patients with orthodontic and gnathological issues, as well as long-term effects.
