In Whole Body Vibration, the user stands or uses specific poses on a vibrating platform. Vibrations travel through the body, causing subconscious muscle contractions.
What will it do?
Recent studies show that WBV training boosted mineral density in postmenopausal women, improved balance in elderly women, and improved muscle strength in elderly adults and women with osteoarthritis in the knee.
Short term, WBV improves circulation, causing the muscles to contract and relax and act as a pump to the vessels and lymphatic system. Two studies showed a beneficial widening of blood vessels. NASA studies show that astronauts prevent bone loss if they stand on a vibrating plate for 10 to 20 minutes a day.
Whole Body Vibration machines show benefits for those who cannot exercise well on their own, including patients with emphysema, osteoporosis, arthritis and obesity. According to the Ventura Center for Healing, MS and ALS patients who cannot train due to loss of muscle control felt better, had more energy and experienced less pain while using vibration therapy.
Who should not use WBV? You should definitely consult a physician if you have a serious cardiovascular problem, pacemaker, recent surgeries, hip, knee and shoulder implants, epilepsy or if you’re pregnant.
