Disturbed proprioception following a period of muscle vibration in humans.


Forearm position matching tasks were performed by blindfolded subjects before and after applying vibration for 60 s to the biceps or triceps muscle of one arm. Following cessation of vibration, statistically significant alignment (proprioceptive) errors occurred when a movement lengthened the previously vibrated muscle. The error was such that the length of the post-vibrated muscle was greater than the length of the same muscle in the non-vibrated arm. This effect is the opposite to that which occurs during vibration.
