With current home WBV equipment, many users do not position their bodies on the plates as they should. As a consequence, the vibrations get lost in the bones and joints and other places where they shouldn't be.
DALLAS (PRWEB) July 31, 2007
"When it comes to WBV machines, the first thing to understand is that just because you're standing on a vibrating plate, that doesn't mean you're getting any benefit," said Pascal Servell, clinical director for MedSurge Advances. "All vibrations are not the same - you need to have appropriately high frequencies, and you need to have sufficient amplitude, for example.
"Equally important, you must use the machine correctly to get results," Servell said. "With current home WBV equipment, many users do not position their bodies on the plates as they should. As a consequence, the vibrations get lost in the bones and joints and other places where they shouldn't be."
Unlike other WBV technologies on the market, the Vybe is designed specifically for physician-managed commercial venues, such as medical spas and the new category of fitness spas(TM), or "fitspas(TM)," developed by MedSurge Advances. Among its distinctions, the Vybe features an insertable card that can be preprogrammed by a medical professional or trainer to ensure a consistent, customized workout regimen.
Whole Body Vibration and the Vybe
The Vybe utilizes controlled vertical vibrations to stimulate reflexive muscle contractions for improved strength, power and agility. This method of training, increasingly popular among professional athletes in the United States and Europe, is known as Whole Body Vibration.
The principle behind WBV is Newton's law of motion, which states that force is equal to mass multiplied by acceleration. Whereas conventional workouts typically apply mass, such as free weights, to improve the body's functional force, the Vybe applies acceleration to the body instead - achieving the benefits of a workout without requiring significant physical exertion.
WBV is grounded in independent scientific research conducted in the United States, Europe and Asia. In a controlled study published in the Official Journal of the American College of Sports Medicine, researchers reported that "strength, and more specifically isometric and isokinetic strength, significantly improved after WBV training. The magnitude of the strength increase in isometric and dynamic strength of the quadriceps... is comparable to the increase that was realized by an equal number of resistance training sessions."
Beyond building and toning muscle, the Vybe offers users additional health benefits. Research has shown that WBV increases bone density, which can help prevent osteoporosis in women. The Vybe also has been demonstrated to increase range of motion, enhance circulation, and improve hormonal balance.
The Vybe is available exclusively through U.S. physicians and is a core technology of futureperfect(TM) Total Body Management Centers.
