Brief description of study

Evaluate the effectiveness of a Whole body vibration training program on quadriceps muscle strength, functional capacity and respiratory muscle strength in adult renal transplant recipients

Detailed Study Description

The study will be a randomized controlled clinical trial involving adult renal transplant recipients, who will be recruited through eligibility criteria at Nephrology outpatient clinics of the Kidney Transplantation Centers of the Hospital das Clnicas of the Federal University of Pernambuco (HC-UFPE).
