Research and/or development of vibroacoustic use include applications to manage pain; reduced
symptoms for patients in chemotherapy; reduce stress; distract patients during biopsies,
aspirations, and other procedures; increase range of motion (ROM) and muscle tone and in physical
therapy or rehabilitative therapy following knee replacement; help prepare patients for surgery or
those who are recovering; and provide sensory stimulation for people who are hearing impaired and
developmentally disabled.
Vibroacoustics can also increase quality of life and be used to manage behavior in psychiatric
settings, geriatric facilities, child life centers, and palliative care facilities.
