Vibroacoustic therapy is a recently recognized technology that uses sound in the audible range to
produce mechanical vibrations that are applied directly to the body. The technology uses speakers
or transducers placed within mats, mattresses, chairs, recliners, tables, or soft furniture to provide
a physiologic and auditory experience. Benefits include pain management, anxiety relief, symptom
reduction, physical therapy, and health improvement.
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.
