How Whole Body Vibration Works

If you read the history page, you know that the technology was originally designed to increase bone density and muscle mass. When you start to use your VibraTrim, you will notice how your body automatically adapts to the vibrations. One of the first results you will have is increased flexibility and range of motion. By standing on the plate, the vibration generates systematic involuntary muscle contraction through out the body which not only increases your flexibility but also burns fat by increasing your metabolism while it improves your circulation and provides your cells with ideal oxygen and nutrient delivery to slow the degenerative process.

The VibraTrim unit is designed to create adjustable vibrations from 10-50 Hz by a oscillating vibration. This pivotal system vibrates at the correct speed from a medical and body-toning standpoint. The VibraTrim generates systematic involuntary muscle contraction with less G force than the “piston” type systems, the other style of Whole Body Vibration that is on the market. The piston style offers a straight up and down motion like a jackhammer. This type of “up and down” piston movement and vibration is known to cause problems that can result in bad backs (truck drivers and others) and other various physical areas (carpal tunnel).

Science has learned that the human body adapts to various stressors and stimuli. The Whole Body Vibration produces amazing results as a result of that adaptation process. When you stand on your VibraTrim, the vibration energy is transferred to your entire body. This first stimulates receptors in the Achilles tendon that stimulate nerve receptors, which track up to the cerebellum (the part of the brain that is responsible for balance). This pleasant vibrating action causes the brain to tell the muscles of your body to actively contract to maintain its equilibrium, thus creating a therapeutic and muscle-toning workout.

Automatically Exercising and Toning Your Muscles
You are familiar with the patellar or knee-jerk reflex (when a Doctor hits the tendon below the kneecap). This stretch reflex (myotatic) is an automatic muscle contraction in response to stretching within the muscle. When you are using your VibraTrim, the vibrating plate provides the stimulus for a similar type of reaction for your entire body. The various exercise positions will require those particular muscles to respond affecting all of its muscle fibers, ligaments and tendons. Using a variety of exercise positions the entire body can be exercised and toned. The plate by moving very fast creates an unbelievable stimulus causing your muscles to tone and strengthen faster than any other form of exercise.

Increases Bone Density
The muscles are attached to the bones. When they contract, they pull on your bones. The harder the muscles work, the more stress they place on the skeleton. When this happens, there is an increase in the density of the bones. They actually get stronger on the insides because more bone has formed there. More massive bones are sturdier bones. This bone formation benefit accumulates over time. The longer a person uses their VibraTrim the stronger their bones will get. Broken bones are the leading reason elderly people end up in nursing homes. Strong bones enable you to have an active and healthy lifestyle that leads to a longer life. Weak bones will shorten your life expectancy.

Increases Your Lymphatic Drainage
Our body vibrates every single moment it pumps blood. Hence, vibration is essential for our blood circulation and lymphatic drainage. But what is lymphatic drainage? The lymphatic system is a network of ducts and nodes that drains toxins out of the muscles in the body. These nodes help in conveying antibodies into the muscles, making our bodies stronger and resistant to fatigue. Lymph nodes play a significant role in our immune system, which most people forget to pay attention to. Unfortunately, the lymphatic system is not capable of pumping toxins out of these nodes by itself and heavily relies on muscle activity. When you stand up straight on your VibraTrim, you can feel the aches and pains of standing all day, exercising or just plain working going away as stiffness and tightness of your muscles seems to drain away. This is the lymphatic drainage at work while it also fights infection and bacteria. Spending a few minutes a day on your VibraTrim will make you feel lighter, looser and more relaxed. Try it after a tough day. You will be amazed at your revitalization.

Increases Your Circulation
Muscles contraction requires oxygen and glucose. By increasing the number of muscle contractions, so does your need for oxygen and glucose. Your body responds naturally by increasing the heart rate to provide those vital elements to your muscles. As a result, your VibraTrim is automatically increasing your blood flow.

Lowers Your Stress
Stress can cause the release of Cortisol. Cortisol is terrible for the body - it causes your body's inflammation levels to go up, it robs you of sleep, wipes out your adrenal glands and after a while leaves you constantly exhausted. Exercising on your VibraTrim helps your body to reduce the levels of Cortisol and replace it with the release of endorphins, the "Feel Good" hormones.

Improves Your Balance
The human brain is built to keep our bodies in a state of equilibrium, balance, and stability. If someone pushes your shoulder, your brain responds by telling you to lean back against the push so you don't fall over. If you're standing on a platform that is moving 20 - 50 times per second, your brain must respond quickly by triggering certain muscles to contract and others to relax so that you maintain your balance. The brain is forced to respond to the rapidly moving surface under you or you would fall over! The VibraTrim makes muscles stronger and improves balance. That makes it less likely that you will break a bone if you happen to fall down. Strong muscles protect the bones from damage in an impact. Improved balance also makes it less likely that you will fall down in the first place.

The benefits of WBV training are considerable,
as evidenced by its acceptance in major medical, rehabilitation and therapeutic centers across the country. The health benefits are multifold and results can be achieved easily. It can enhance your general well being and quality of life regardless of age, medical, neurological or physical condition. WBV training is not difficult, but it can be challenging - the degree of difficulty is entirely up to you.

Whole Body Vibration increases the production of the regenerative and repair hormones. It also improves the blood circulation, increases the basal metabolic rate, strengthens bone tissue and improves lymph drainage. The net result is more strength, stamina, speed, increased flexibility, mobility and coordination, rapid recovery of muscles and tissue, improved collagen production and fat reduction. This is achieved with minimal stress on the joints and ligaments. You can perform static or dynamic movements including standing, sitting, kneeling, lying, and placing your hands on it. Almost any exercise from a typical gym workout to passively sitting on a chair and resting your feet can be done on a VibraTrim. Talk about the ideal program. This is it.

There are two basic types of (WBV) movements:

Oscillating: Oscillating (pivotal) movement is generally supported by the medical community as a healthier type of vibration as because it can handle more weight, have much less vertical impact on the body, reduce stress on the organs, and help keep the spine more flexible and loose. When using oscillating whole body vibration equipment, the engaged muscles contract alternately as in normal walking motion, so the same muscle groups on both sides of the body are not contracted at the same time. This is the style that is used by VibraTrim.

Linear: Linear (vertical/tri-planar) movement primarily duplicates the jump reflex in the body. The muscles on both sides of the body contract simultaneously resulting in very high impact. Repetition of this sort of impact makes certain positions on this type of WBV exerciser unsuitable. User with joint or spine problems may find this muscle contraction uncomfortable and may benefit from an oscillating machine. Many users tell of increased headaches after using this style. Linear WBV exercisers are effective for improving jump height, which is why they are popular with football and basketball players.
