Katsuzo Nishi in 1927 proposed the capillarity exercise based on limbs vibrations to compensate obstruction of blood circulation. Research was made to identify influence of vibrations to human’s physiological parameters. There were made an exercise regarding to Nishi methodology and imitation of exercise with one arm on vibration stand while monitoring physiological parameters and accelerations. Detected parameters’ changes were significantly smaller when vibrating only one hand. Future plans are to imitate exercise while vibrating all limbs and make a stand to imitate cardiovascular system to identify vibrations influence in blood flow rate.
