Whole Body Vibration is an innovative, safe, and effective exercise option. It is the use of a
moving platform at specific frequencies and amplitudes to superimpose vibration on normal functional strengthening exercises. Like no other exercise, whole body vibration works directly through the nervous system creating a significant increase in the normal physiological responses of the body to exercise.
Whole Body Vibration has the competitive advantage over conventional training due to its ability to provide a more effective and efficient exercise without the constraints associated with regular training, such as joint stress, lengthy repetitions and time commitments. Research has shown similar strength gains to conventional resistance training at a fraction of the time. Ten minutes of Vibration exercise produces similar results to 60 minutes of conventional training. In addition, there is less stress on the joints, ligaments and tendons with Vibration training when compared to regular resistance training. Therefore, Whole Body Vibration provides an effective solution to those that may benefit from weight training, but are unable to engage in that type of exercise program.
