Abstract The purpose of this study was to demonstrate the influence of ergonomic structure using proprioceptive resonance, Keope GPR, in post vigorous exercise recovery, through monitoring blood lactate. The study is carried out with elite national and international athletes. Conclusions: The study shows the drop in lactate concentration measured after 13 min of GPR recovery: 84.5% in GPR vs 2.9% reduction in standard recovery. With Keope GPR lactate decreases with an almost complete recovery compared to the starting value.
OPTOELECTRONIC EVALUATION POSTURE AND BALANCE AFTER MECHANICAL STIMULATION WITH KEOPE GPR
Dott. Mario Colucci
Abstract The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effect of Keope GPR on posture and balance. The present study involved some male volunteers aged between 20 and 30. Conclusions: The results observed show that the stimulation of the Pacini and Merkel corpuscles by Keope GPR technology leads to better coordination and stability on the limb used mainly for movements while increasing the oscillatory movements on the preferential support limb (static limb). These data indicate a tendency to harmonize the postural tone between the two limbs.

The aim of the study was to determine how the proprioceptive and auditory stimolation delivered by Keope GPR, could modulate the cortical rhythms typically recored during the rest condition (assessable through electroencephalography EEG) in 12 adults. Conclusions: the rhythm MU (μ) which indicates the presence of the motor relaxation of the subject, significantly increases after a session with Keope (program 1).

The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of an ergonomic structure using multi focal vibration (MFV) on neuro muscular and postural systems in healthy subjects. 30 volunteers underwent both electromyography (EMG) and stabilometry before being subjected to global proprioceptive MFV resonance and, immediately after it. Conclusions: The effects of MFV on the superficial EMG of masseter and temporalis muscles showed a statistically significant change in masseter muscles (p<0.05). Similar effects were recorded by postural and stabilometric tests (p<0.05). In regard to the effects on the postural system investigated using stabilometry, a significant improvement in balance and re-establishment of the body’s centre of gravity was recorded.
EVALUATION OF KEOPE’S EFFECIENCY WITH RECOVERY PHYSICAL PERFORMANCE POST RIGOROUS EXERCISE
The scope of this study was to evaluate the use of the ergonomic structure using multi focal vibrations (Keope GPR) in the interval between two high intensity intermittent activities to reduce the deterioration of performance in the second activity. The tests were conducted at the Laboratory of Physiology of Exercise at the Institute of Bioimagery and Molecular Physiology of the National Research Council. Conclusions: In conclusion, the present study demonstrates that vibrations applied in a single session after high intensity, intermittent effort (Repeated Sprint Cycle), ease the sense of muscle tiredness, in comparison to the passive recovery of the control group, and promote the removal of lactic acid from the blood. Thus acutely improving muscle’s capacity to return to strength.

The study involved 21 ski teacher, aged between 20 and 32 years old, who would have had a very demanding working day (7 hours of lessons). The object of this study was to test and document the connection between the response in the neuromuscolar system and the use of an ergonomic structure of global proprioceptive stimulation that causes a muscular and psychophysical repolarisation. Conclusions: The analysed results show a general improvement in all the indices tested (Electromiography). Research has demonstrated how mechanical modulation of Keope GPR can convey a strong stimulus to the whole organism, especially to the neuromuscular and skeletal systems. Keope GPR offers an optimum aid for people involved in sports performance, whether in the preparation of the skeletal muscle structure for performance, or for post exercise recovery, through a fast, global repolarisaton of fibres.
MODIFICATIONS IN PHYSIOLOGICAL ACTIVITY DURING AND AFTER KEOPE GPR THERAPY
The aim of the study was to demonstrate the influence of the ergonomic proprioceptive resonance structure, Keope GPR, on the system proprioceptor-nerve-muscle in four professional athletes of the Italian national team of Paraclimbing and to investigate how Keope can help the athlete in post-performance recovery and in repolarisation of fibres. Conclusions: The study showed that the effect of vasomotor stimulation of Keope increases the oxygen supply helping muscle recovery. The action of Keope stimulates the proprioceptors and exteroceptors that control balance and posture improving coordination. The examined parameters, muscular repolarization, cardiopulmonary work, mechanical load, posture, column flexibility are positively affected by Keope stimulation. The ergonomic propriocective resonance stimulation repolarizes the muscles, that become more relaxed, more elastic and consequently ready for the next exercise. This induces the decrease of objective and subjective fatigue and recovery time.
Chapter entitled “Ripolarizzazione scheletro muscolare: Keope MFV” (“Skeletal muscular repolarization: Keope MFV”)of theuniversity text “ORTOGNATODONZIA CLINICA” (“MEDICAL ORTHODONTICS”) of G. Farronato.
Author: A. Maffei Edizioni Ermes, Milano 2013 The chapter analyzes the responses to Keope stimulation in cases of imbalances of the tempero-mandibular joint and in cases of alterations of the psychofisical integrity. The synergy of the three values of Keope stimulation (frequency, width of oscillation and rate of acceleration) is capable of inducing beneficial effects on the body and on the psyche itself. According to the study conducted by the School of Specialism in Orthodontry of the Università degli Studi di Milano, around 80% of subjects referred to positive sensations and feelings of psycho-physical well-being, and the impossibility to perceive the usual feeling of muscle tiredness..
