The VPX 2000 is designed for people that don't have time to go to the gym, or that aren't physically fit enough to get the proper amount of exercise. Strengthen and Tone Muscles Improve Blood Circulation Increase Metabolism Reduce Back and Joint Pain Build Bone Density Improve Felxibility Lose weight Provides a great low impact workout! 10 minutes of exercise is the equivalent of 1 hour of exercise in the gym! On a WBV machine, the platform you stand on moves very rapidly. This controlled motion is transferred up through your body. All of your body tissues are forced to react to the stimulus of the vibrating platform. Bllood flow increases considerably and more oxygen gets circulated throughout your body. Lymphatic drainage improves which aids in detoxification and increased bone mineral density. The way you position your body on the vibrating platform determines what tissues are affected. You have complete control over the body part you want to target and how challenging the workout is. Vertical and Elliptical technologies tend to be more versatile as compared to machines that use Oscillating technology. Because the platform on Oscillating machines moves like a teetor-totter, you are unable to perform many unilateral (1-legged) positions or exercises where you sit directly on the platform. Several WBV manufacturers have penetrated high-end fitness and medical markets here in the US. Many professional sports teams use big machines made for athletes who lift weights on the vibrating platform. These machines are priced in excess of $8,000 - $15,000. Since many of these units are developed to help professional athletes, they tend to be very large units and are uncomfortable for the standard user. They are simply too powerful. In America it's common to think that more is better but this isn't the case with WBV. The origins of Whole Body Vibration technology can be traced back to the Swedish gymnast, physician, and inventor Gustav Zander (1835-1920) and Dr. John Harvey Kellogg (1852-1943). The Germans picked up on the health and wellness benefits that vibration technology offered in the 1960’s by developing an exercise technique called rhythmic neuromuscular stimulation. Then the Russians moved vibration technology forward for good in the 1960’s. The space race between the Russians from Eastern Europe and the United States from the west fueled research and development of all kinds of new products. The Soviets quickly realized that being exposed to zero gravity conditions in outer space caused severe deterioration of bone mineral density and muscle tissue. The concept of humans living with the constant force of Earth’s gravity is where the theory behind WBV originated. The Russian space program used Whole Body Vibration as a way to simulate weight bearing loads for their cosmonauts while training and rehabbing before, during, and after trips in outer space. Introducing WBV in zero gravity conditions is something that worked to simulate the forces of gravity when there isn’t any. Cosmonauts (and now NASA) used WBV machines to maintain bone mineral density and muscle strength. Instead of being too weak to walk upon returning from orbit, the Russian cosmonauts were returning from space in almost the same condition as when they left. Ever wonder why the Russians were so dominant in the Olympics during the 1980’s. You guessed it...their athletes were using WBV regularly in training and rehabilitation programs. German Universities continued their own research on the effects of WBV. Many studies were done on a variety of effects on the body, such as WBV and Osteoporosis, developing muscle mass, improving balance and circulation, rehabilitation for injuries, weight loss, and the like. The famous exercise belt of the 1950s is not comparable to today's form of WBV. PowerVibe utilize weight bearing load (your body) that is in line with the vibration stimulus to produce positive effects. Your body experiences rapid acceleration and deceleration in the tissues that are in line with the vibrations.
