Vibration Platform


Whole body vibration exercise has also been shown to:

• Be effective in reducing pain sensation and pain-related disability in patients affected by chronic low back pain.7

• Improve balance/posture, even when the displacement is relatively small.4 Postural muscles play an important role in stabilizing the body during vibration. As supportive evidence, in a study it was concluded that foot sole input contributes to the coding and the spatial representation of body posture.

• Improve proprioception. “A loss of proprioception would contribute to neuromuscular dysfunction and likely poor segmental stability in low back pain patients, which may lead to an increase in the risk of injury or further injury. Therefore, to treat patients with low back pain effectively, proprioception training is usually considered to be an important element of the rehabilitation exercise program.

• Effectively counteract bone loss. Low level vibration at 30 Hz for 20 minutes per day stimulated a 34 percent increase in the density of trabecular bone in the proximal femur of adult male sheep following one year of treatment.

• Acutely increase testosterone and growth hormone levels and acutely decrease cortisol levels in healthy individuals when the training protocol was relatively short.
