Whole Body Vibration (WBV) has in recent years attracted much interest for its applications in healthcare, due to its positive effects on circulation, muscle function, bone density, balance and mobility.
Russian scientists developed the technology in the 1970s to maintain muscle and bone strength in their cosmonauts.
WBV in a healthcare setting involves standing, sitting and/or exercising on a vibrating plate. It has a vibration belt which gives great relief around the lumbar and hip region, and a massager for hands and arms. It is set at amplitude that IS SAFE AND TOLERATED BY ALL.
