Whole-body vibration (WBV) training is a very popular kind of practice in sport, fitness and physiotherapy. This work reviews the current knowledge regarding the use and effectiveness of WBV in the physiotherapy. The discrepancies between different authors’ results are probably due to divergence in WBV training protocols. The paperwork clearly showed that despite its ultimate effects, exercises on a vibration platform are safe, feasible, and well tolerated by patients with different disorders. This narrative review should help physiotherapists verify therapy programs regarding patients’ exposure to WBV.

Micro-thin-layer chromatography in two dimensional (2D-mTLC) mode in normal and reversed phase systems by use of diol bonded stationary phase was applied to make fingerprints of 11 species of Mentha genus and two finished pharmaceutical products.
Nonaqueous eluents (propan-2-ol or ethyl acetate dissolved in n-heptane) were used in normal phase systems. Mixtures of acetonitrile with water were used in reversed phase chromatographic systems.
Optimization of one dimensional systems was performed by determining of RF vs. composition of mobile phases dependencies for standards occurring in various species of Mentha. Most selective eluents were chosen to optimize two-dimensional systems by creating RF in normal-phase (NP) systems vs. RF in reversed-phase (RP) systems correlations.
2D-mTLC on diol polar bonded stationary phase were optimized to separate phenolic compounds and make fingerprints of examined plant materials and this method was never applied earlier in the chromatographic analysis.
