The Mechanisms of whole body vibration on the human body is not clearly presented despite of the research result and there is not enough research that shows the effects of vibration on the kinetic changes of the lower joint. Therefore, this study focuses on finding out which lower joint is related with kinetic vertical jump ability. Five male and five female who didn`t have orthopedic history were selected as the subjects. The subjects carried out three squat jumps before and after 5minutes of 30Hz whole body vibration. We have utilized a 3D motion analysis system to analyze the kinetic changes of the lower joint in the vertical jump. The height of subjects squat jump was improved after whole body vibration treatment. Also, the lower joint moment and power increased. However, there were no statistically significant changes in GRF, hip joint moment and power after the whole body vibration proved to have positive effect on the ankle and knee joints but showed negative effect on the hip joint.
