IT WORKS AND ILL PROVE IT!. I own a company dedicated to furthering the research and development of wholebody vibration. We currently supply Cal State University Fullerton Kinesiology Lab, Arizona States Health and Wellness Campus, and University of Arizona Physiology with our line of Pivotal vibration platforms. Arizona state concluded a study on our products last year that will soon be published in the journal of sports medicine. The study states that 5 minutes of holding a standing position , an athletic position( kness slightly bent) and a squat position at (25 Hz setting on the machine) was roughly muscularly equivalent to 5 minutes of a near sprint on a stationary bike. Okay so you may not think that that sounds like much but get on a bike and try sprinting for 5 minutes, your muscles would be on fire and you would be completely winded right? Well that is gonna scare 90% of people away from excercise becasue they fear that burn. With obesity rates on the rise, we provide a simple solution that can get them similar muscular results with very little effort. Go to Http://www.google.com
and see the technology page and the research page. You can watch an active diagram of how the vibration plates work. Additionaly, we have about 25 studies posted on the research page.
LAST BUT NOT LEAST! Many comapnies are advertising the product as something you just stand on. THIS IS FALSE-- For the elderly who can't do the traditional work out, this may suffice and add some forced muscle articulation, bone density and tone in their lower extremeties but for fitness buff the workout is much more intense. A vibration training workout consists of 10 minutes non stop of alternating static and active poses such as squats, pushups, body bridges, dips, standing, standings abs, shoulder presses, and bicep curls. I can do over 100 pushups but only about 10 on the platform. I can do set of 10 tricep extension excercises in the gym but I can barely do 10 dips on the platform supporting about 1/3 of my body weight. You get the point. One of my machines is at Tripple Threat Performance down in Tempe, Arizona where many Pro-Athletes train. There has to be a reason why thier strength an conditioning coaches who have years of specialized training incorporate my machines into their exercise regimines.
If you have any more questions, ask away and ill be happy to answer.
