Abstract

Vibrations and shaking are techniques used as an airway clearance technique for almost 50 years with little evidence of effectiveness. The technique is dependent upon therapsists' interpetation of compliance of the chest wall and applying appropriate forces. This study aimed to assess the consistency of forces used during vibrations and shaking incorporating a method measuring forces via a force platform.
