The theory behind vibration exercise equipment was actually generated for the Russian space program. With zero gravity, there is no resistance to work your muscles, and a prolonged stay in space can lead to muscle deterioration and even loss in bone density. To fight this, the Russians came up with vibration exercise.
The theory is simple, you merely get onto the platform, you can stand, sit, lay down, or even focus the platform on certain body parts. The platform creates a vibration, which is sent through the body. In reflex the muscles contract. This causes tendons to stretch, and increases blood flow and improves blood oxygenation. This strengthens and tones them without effort on the person's part. Since the vibrations get sent through the entire body, all the muscle groups are affected.
Degenerative disease conditions, accelerated aging & all diminished capacities ultimately can 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 & shorten life span. Solution - whole body vibration therapy!
