30 Universities Worldwide and 100’s of Doctors, Chiropractors, have conducted various research, all pointing to the proven health benefits of whole body vibration machines. One doctor in particular published his work with the American College of Rheumatology. Dr. Bruyure in a published medical article, stated the following:
Controlled whole body vibrations (CWBV) improve quality of life, walk, balance, and motor capacity in elderly patients, according to a new study reported at the annual meeting of the American College of Rheumatology.
In the new study, 42 volunteers in a nursing home were randomized to a vibration group or a non-treatment group for 6 weeks. The treatment group underwent 6 weeks of CWBV (4 one minute series 3 times a week) on a vertical vibrating platform (10 Hz in the first and third series and 27 Hz in the second and fourth ones).
After 6 weeks of therapy, patients in the vibrating group showed:
143% improvement in physical function.
41% improvement in pain.
60% increase in vitality.
23% improvement in general health.
57% improvement in quality of walking as assessed by the Tinetti test (compared with a 2% improvement in control subjects).
77% improvement in equilibrium (compared with 1% worsening in controls).
39% decrease in time required to get up and go (compared with an increase of 14% among controls).
While it was only a small study, after just 3 weeks or 9 sessions, we saw a great improvement in get-up-and-go.
These results suggest younger audiences can also benefit from vibration therapy machines, especially those with physical issues like chronic pain, poor circulation and weight-related medical conditions.
