Whole body vibration is a machine which has been designed to improve general health by providing a safe and gentle form of exercise. Stand on a oscillating platform that produces a vibration technology. These vertical vibrations are produced with a side-alternating rocking movement, similar to walking. Our body reacts to this natural stimulus with an involuntary reflex muscle contraction. Depending on the speed, muscles will react up to 23 times per second (approximately 11-12 contractions and 11-12 relaxations), and as the acceleration forces increase, your body will feel as though it "weighs" more. This clever technology means you can work against a far greater influence or "load" of gravity in every movement you perform. Ten minutes on the vibrational machine is equivalent to one hour of exercise. Studies performed at NASA found that vibration technology can help prevent the dramatic muscle deterioration and bone loss astronauts experience in the weightless environment in space. Physicians who performed the NASA study believe that whole body vibration technology holds promise not only for astronauts, but for others experiencing bone or muscle deterioration as well. In fact, whole body vibration is currently being used by physical therapy centers, spas, and clinics to help alleviate the symptoms of many health issues.
