When you stand on our oscillating vibration technology platform, 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.
The result – more benefits! Unlike other vibration technology fitness machines, our vibration machine’s technology is particularly unique because it may achieve results for a wide range of objectives, for all ages and body types. There are two main types of vibration available:
Oscillating/ Pivotal Technology (What Our Vibration Machines Use)
Oscillating vibration is the most natural vibrating movement and has the widest range of benefits. People find this type of vibration technology most comfortable and it makes sense that muscles are activated alternately as they would be in walking.
This is by far the most popular type of vibration technology with many scientific studies to support it. Widely used by chiropractors, physiotherapists, trainers and doctors across the world, this type of vibration technology is suitable for all ages and health levels.
Linear/Tri-planar Technology (Not Used by Us!)
Very high frequency vertical micro-vibrations are created by this technology. This style of technology can be uncomfortable for some users as it does not emulate a natural movement like walking.
These types of technology are not recommended for those that are not in top shape and can be very uncomfortable for older users. There are also questions about frequencies that may be too high and aggressive for the body.
