Whole Body vibration exercise equipment was originally developed for astronauts. Within the zero gravity environments there was no resistance to work their muscles, and prolonged space travel led to muscle deterioration and even loss in bone density. To counteract this astronauts came up with vibration exercise.
The mechanism is simple: you merely stand, sit or even focus specific body parts on the platform and the vibrations are then transferred through the body. In reflex the muscles contract, causing tendons to stretch, increasing in blood flow and improving blood oxygenation. This strengthens and tones the body with significantly less effort than traditional exercises.
Degenerative disease conditions, accelerated aging and other diminished capacities can ultimately be attributed to insufficient cellular stimulation. As the living cell struggles with poor nutrition, low oxygen levels, environmental toxins and stagnation of lymphatic fluids, disease conditions develop which accelerate aging and shorten life span.
THE SOLUTION ------WHOLE BODY VIBRATION THERAPY!
What is Whole Body vibration (WBV)?
Whole Body Vibration is a type of exercise using a vibrating base, which delivers a mechanical stimulus characterized by oscillatory motion at approximately 1 to 15 mm rise creating 5 to 50hz or contractions per second throughout the body. WBV exposes the entire body to vibration, as opposed to localized vibration (Biomechanical Stimulation), where an isolated muscle or muscle group is stimulated. WBV enables the user to recruit many more muscles than traditional exercise and trigger other whole-body reactions. Biomechanical parameters include amplitude, frequency, and duration.
How does whole body vibration work?
Vibration training stimulates muscles throughout the entire body much more effectively than traditional exercise and activity. WBV causes involuntary muscle contractions at 1 to 50 times per second compared to once or twice per second through traditional exercise, thereby recruiting both fast and slow twitch muscle fibers during a vibration session. This stimulation creates significantly increased blood-flow with an improvement of transport for oxygen, carbon dioxide, vitality components (micro-nutrients), energy components (macro-nutrients), toxins and waste (i.e. lactic acid) all the way down to the cellular level.
The VibraWav Advantage
Vibration is a quicker, safer and more effective method of putting the human body in an ideal health state where it recovers and heals much quicker than other methods used by traditional health and wellness providers. Vibra-Wav provides better results in just 10 minutes than you receive from 60 minutes of traditional exercise. Through vibration 100% of the muscle fiber is being stimulated versus approximately 40% in the same non-vibration exercise. It takes 8 - 10 months of traditional exercise to accomplish the same results that take only 1 month with vibration. Vibration does almost all the work for you.
