Brief Summary:
The pre-frail elderly are a population more vulnerable to diminished functionality and future disabilities. Thus, interventions focused on the prevention of sarcopenia are indicated to prevent dysfunction in this population. This study aims to evaluate the effects of whole body vibration training associated with inspiratory muscle training on functional outcomes, balance and muscle metabolism in pre-frail elderly women.

Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Double (Participant, Outcomes Assessor)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: Effects of Whole Body Vibration Associated With the Inspiratory Muscle Training Program on Functional Capacity, Balance and Muscle Metabolism
Actual Study Start Date : October 1, 2018
Actual Primary Completion Date : May 30, 2019
Actual Study Completion Date : July 30, 2019

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: WBV + IMT
Whole body vibration training associated with respiratory muscle training (WBV + IMT)
Other: WBV + IMT
The whole body vibration training will be performed through a vibrating platform with three axes and vibration frequency set at 35 Hz. The amplitude used will be 02 to 04 mm.The inspiratory muscle training will be performed through a device that provides inspiratory resistance.

Active Comparator: WBV + IMTsham
Whole body vibration training associated with respiratory muscle training sham (WBV + IMTsham)
Other: WBV + IMTsham
The whole body vibration training will be performed through a vibrating platform with three axes and vibration frequency set at 35 Hz. The amplitude used will be 02 to 04 mm.The inspiratory muscle training sham will be performed through a device without inspiratory resistance.

Sham Comparator: WBVsham + IMTsham
Whole body vibration training sham associated with respiratory muscle training sham (WBVsham + IMTsham)
Other: WBVsham + IMTsham
Whole body vibration training will be performed through a vibrating platform coupled to a device that generates non-therapeutic low frequency vibration. The simulation of inspiratory muscle training will be performed through a device with no inspiratory resistance.




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Walking Distance [ Time Frame: Change from Baseline walking distance at 3 months ]
    The walking distance will be assessed through the six-minute walk test.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Balance [ Time Frame: Change from Baseline balance at 3 months ]
    Static balance and dynamic balance will be evaluated through the Tinetti test

  2. Functionality [ Time Frame: Change from Baseline functionality at 3 months ]
    It will be evaluated through the Timed Up and Go (TUG) test.

  3. Hand grip strength [ Time Frame: Change from Baseline hand grip strength at 3 months ]
    The strength of the dominant hand will be evaluated by dynamometry.

  4. Muscle Metabolism [ Time Frame: Change from Baseline muscle metabolism at 3 months ]
    It will be assessed through the blood lactate and glucose rate after moderate physical activity.
