Welcome

Research done over the years has shown definite health benefits for stroke victims and people with spinal cord injuries.  Vibration Training  also has many other benefits such as:

  • Low impact -kind to joints
  • Improved muscle strength and performance by up to 50% in as little as 3 weeks
  • Increased bone density and improved osteoporosis
  • Heightened sense of balance and improved co-ordination
  • Increased flexibility and range of motion
  • Enhanced critical blood flow throughout the body with enhanced oxygen uptake and lymph drainage
  • Increased production of hormones important to regeneration and repair such as HGH (Human Growth Hormone), and testosterone.
  • Increased "happiness" hormone and soothing of insomnia
  • Decreased cortisol levels reducing the effects of stress
  • Rehabilitation of injuries and ailments.
  • Enhanced explosive strength
  • Reduced lower back pain and general pain.
  • Activates joints to soothe arthritis pain.

    • Endorsed by Professional & Olympic Athletes
    • Used in NASA's space program
    • Builds muscle 1 1/2 - 2 times faster than a weight program
    • Equivalent to running for 1 hour in just 10 minutes
    • Safe stretching & relaxing massage effects
    • May acutely decrease arterial stiffness
    • Relieves pain of arthritis, fibromyalgia & sciatica
    • Increases blood circulation
    • Builds muscle mass
    • Increases bone density
    • Stimulates lymphatic circulation for detoxification
    • Retrains the brain for improved balance from effcts of MS & stroke

For Athletes and Would-Be Athletes:

  • VibraFit Training improves balance in athletes with reconstructed ACL
  • Induces strength gain in knee extensors to the same extent as resistance training at moderate intensity.
  • Aids in the management of acute soft tissue injury and the sequela of disuse and immobilization.
  • Is a suitable training method to improve knee extension strength and flexibility which is important not only for performance but also for the prevention of muscle/tendon injury.
  • Results in significantly higher muscle activity in leg muscles during performance of isometric squats.
  • In a group of skiers, Vibration Training significantly improved ankle and knee muscle strength and explosive strength and is a beneficial supplemental strength training program.

What Our Customers Say

I bought one of these machines for my wife who is diabetic. She needs to exercise to control her blood sugar levels but she is also an invalid so she can’t exercise. The vibration trainer has brought about fantastic results for her diabetes! ...

My son-in-law was recently diagnosed with MS and had a Vibration Trainer prescribed by his specialist in order to maintain leg muscle because they are very close to perfecting brain surgery to help his condition. ...

A lady in our seniors’ lodge was keeping all the residents awake at night because she walked the halls in her walker. It was the only thing that relieved the pain in her legs and hips. Now that she uses the Vibration Trainer, her pain is gone and she no longer walks the halls. In fact, she no longer ever needs her walker. ...

What Researchers Say

THE EFFECTS OF RANDOM WHOLE-BODY VIBRATION ON MOTOR SYMPTOMS IN PARKINSON'S DISEASE: On average a highly significant improvement of 16.8% in motor score & small changes in limb akinesia and cranial symptoms. Tremor and rigidity scores were improved by 25%. One can then speculate about changes in activation of supplementary motor area and neurotransmitter functions.

DOES PHYSICAL ACTIVITY REDUCE SENIORS' NEED FOR HEALTH CARE?: A STUDY OF 24,281 CANADIANS. This study assessed the association between physical activity and 1) healthcare resource utilizations and 2) healthcare resource utilization costs. Physical inactivity was associated with statistically significant increases to hospitalizations, lengths of stay and healthcare visits. Costs were 2.5 times higher for physically inactive.

Whole Body Vibration Training in MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS patients: Patients with moderate to severe disability were included in the 12 week study. Short tasks where explosive strength and coordination was required showed a significant improvement even though the exercises were not performed explosively, often even statically. Patients were able to maintain or improve their performance. CONCLUSION: WBV may positively influence postural control, balance, mobility strength and endurance. In a degenerative disease like MS, maintaining function and performance is a major goal of therapy.

WBV TRAINING EFFECT ON SPASTICITY, MUSCLE STRENGTH AND MOTOR PERFORMANCE IN ADULTS WITH CEREBRAL PALSY: data suggest that an 8-week intervention can increase muscle strength without negative effect on spasticity.

LOWER BACK PAIN; POSTMENOPAUSAL BONE DENSITY;ELDERLY BALANCE SCORES: - Patients with lower back pain without specific underlying disease, aged 40 - 60 years. Outcome: significant decrease in pain. - 70 Postmenopausal women aged 58 - 74 years. Outcome: improved isometric and dynamic strength 15%, bone density 1% and other markers of muscle function improved. - 42 older female volunteers in nursing homes age 63-98 average age 82 years. Outcome: balance scores improved significantly and a test associated with falls improved above a threshold associated with increased risk of falling. Timed tests improved significantly in 8 of 9 domains.

“The effects of a whole-body vibration program on muscle performance and flexibility in female athletes” Whole-body vibration is a suitable training method to improve knee extension maximal strength, counter-movement jump, and flexibility in a young female athlete. Flexibility is important not only for performance but also for the prevention of muscle-tendon injury.

“Effect of 6-month whole body vibration training on hip density, muscle strength in postmenopausal women.” After 24 weeks Vibration training significantly increased bone mass density of the hip and might be useful in the prevention of osteoporosis. No vibration side effects were observed. This may be an effective way to modify well-recognized risk factors for falls and fractures in older women.

"Treatment of posttraumatic arthrofibrosis of the radioulnar joint with vibration therapy” Many studies have reported an increase in muscle performance after whole-body vibration, but none have evaluated the possibility of vibration application as a therapy for functional restoration after injury. The results of this case study imply that vibration therapy has the potential to aid in the management of acute soft tissue injury and the sequel of disuse and immobilization.

Mechanical vibrations appear to alter cell behavior in a way that point to the potential for the regeneration of cells and tissues in the spine. Our results were both surprising and encouraging, given the socio-economic costs of back pain.
