Standardisation of controlled vestibular stimulation for optimal stress relief in albino wistar rats
Smitha KK, Dinesh KS, Mukkadan JK
Stress is a universal phenomenon to the living being. Man is in quest to relieve the stress in present era for his optimal smoothness of life. Vestibular stimulation [VS] is one among the several types of stress relieving mechanisms. Vestibular stimulation has been proven effective for its stress relieving capacity both in experimental and in human subjects. There are several methods of vestibular stimulation. In this work swinging method of VS was experimented in stressed albino wistar rats. Till date standardization of VS by swinging has not been conducted. In this experiment VS standardization was conducted by using a specially designed device aiming at maximum stress relief to the albino wistar rats. From the observation of stress markers, serum glucose and cortisol, it is seen that optimum stress relief was obtained in 0.17 frequency of swinging VS in stressed albino wistar rats.
