Have any scientific studies been conducted on percussive massagers?

Recent studies have shown that percussive massage can cause muscle tissue to contract more than 30x more powerfully than normal voluntary contractions. Like yoga and exercise, this action results in muscular and fascial lengthening and strengthening, leading to improved muscle strength and enhanced muscle recovery. Also resulting in relieved muscular tightness and reduced physical stress placed on bones and joints, percussive massage has proven to deliver more oxygen and nutrients into the muscle and fascial tissues, resulting in reduced stress and soreness and improved muscle function. Used for rehabilitation, percussive massage expedites healing and recovery of non-use atrophic muscles that have been injured due to traumas, surgery or disease.
