Vibration Training in Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)-Patients During a Three-week Rehabilitation
Effects of Whole Body Vibration Training on Physical Activity in Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) III/IV-Patients During a Three-week Rehabilitation

The aim of this study is to investigate the change of physical activity in COPD-patients performing a whole body vibration training additional to a standard three-week rehabilitation program in comparison to patients performing merely a standard rehabilitation program.
