WBV Research of Benefits

“This study concluded that WBV therapy can improve functional ability and fatigue levels and can also help to preserve bone strength in the hip in females with RA.”
“Treating Rheumatoid Arthritis with
Whole Body Vibration Therapy.”
“What a vibration trainer does is improve the patient’s blood circulation and increase the effectiveness of the lymphatic drainage system, which removes harmful toxins from the body. This will by no means cure rheumatoid arthritis, but it has been known to reduce joint pain and inflammation. Osteoarthritis can be caused by a number of factors, and if caused by calcium deposits, the condition may improve owing to increased blood flow and lymph activity, which can facilitate the re-absorption of the calcium.”
ARTHRITIS
“it seems that the elderly benefit to a higher degree from WBV training, as well as patients with Parkinson’s disease and postmenopausal women”
Madou and Cronin, “The Effects of Whole Body Vibration on Physical and Physiological Capability
in Special Populations.”
“The results of the RTC’s reviewed that Whole Body Vibration therapy does positively affect the motor skills of those who have been diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease.”

Augmented Skin Blood Flow in Subjects with

RLS/WED after Vibration Treatment.”

“Just before going to bed, for discomfort in your calves lie on the floor face-up with your calves up on the platform or for upper leg discomfort sit on the platform facing outwards with legs spread wide, for 5-10 minutes. Set a speed which is relaxing. For most people that’s right in the middle of the speed range. Then crawl into bed for a restful sleep. If you should wake up with uneasy legs in the middle of the night, repeat the above and go right back to sleep!”

” Our preliminary findings suggest that WBVT may be both a feasible and effective method for preventing weight gain among inactive undergraduate students.”

Medysky et al., “WHOLE-BODY VIBRATION TRAINING

TO PREVENT WEIGHT GAIN IN COLLEGE STUDENTS.”

“Our study is the first to show that whole-body vibration may be just as effective as exercise at combatting some of the negative consequences of obesity and diabetes.”

Newman, “Can Whole-Body Vibration Stave off

Obesity and Diabetes?”

“Overall, the vibration plate group lost the highest percentage of weight with an average loss of 11% of their body weight in the first six months and maintained a 10.5% loss after a year compared to a 7% initial body weight loss in the diet and conventional exercise group, which maintained a 6.9% loss.”

Warner, “Can Vibration Plates Shake off Weight?”

WEIGHT LOSS
“In a study performed by researchers at Indiana University-Purdue University, Indianapolis and presented in May, 2014, at a meeting of the American College of Sports Medicine, whole-body vibration exercises were found to reduce painful symptoms and improve quality of life in fibromyalgia patients.”
“Results suggest that a 6-week traditional exercise program with supplementary WBV safely reduces pain and fatigue, whereas exercise alone fails to induce improvements.”
Alentorn-Geli et al., “Six Weeks of Whole-Body Vibration Exercise Improves Pain and Fatigue
in Women with Fibromyalgia.”
FIBROMYALGIA
“The present paper shows, as a pilot study, that vibration exercise may be an effective measure to improve glycemic control in non insulin dependent diabetes type 2 patients.”
Baum, Votteler, and Schiab, “Efficiency of Vibration Exercise for Glycemic Control in Type 2 Diabetes Patients.”
“While it has been proven that WBV training is good for type 2 diabetic patients as it effectively increases blood flow, decreases the weight and waist circumference and reduce the percentage of fat, it is important to check with your doctor before performing the training.”
Pilates, lifestyle, and Growth, “Whole-Body Vibration Exercise Can Combat Diabetes – Pilates & Yoga Fitness.”
DIABETES

“As a standalone community-based intervention, WBV was an efficacious mode of exercise training for people with stable COPD that did not negatively effect exercise tolerance or exacerbate the disease, while concurrently improving functional performance of the lower limbs.”

Furness et al., “Benefits of Whole-Body Vibration

to People with COPD.”

“Whole body vibration exercise in hospitalised COPD patients did not exhibit adverse events and induced clinically significant benefits regarding exercise capacity and health-related quality of life.”

“”We tend to focus on the cardiovascular benefits of physical activity, and those are important. But anything that promotes healthy circulation also helps keep your skin healthy and vibrant,” says dermatologist Ellen Marmur, MD, author of Simple Skin Beauty: Every Woman’s Guide to a Lifetime of Healthy, Gorgeous Skin and associate professor of dermatology at Mount Sinai School of Medicine.”

Jaret, “Exercise for Healthy Skin.”

“Exercise actually supports the production of collagen,” says Amy Dixon, a Los Angeles–based exercise physiologist and celebrity trainer. “The boost in this protein helps to keep your skin firm, supple, and elastic.”

“The Beauty Benefits of Exercise.”

“Probably the best cure for cellulite is exercise. Toning exercises such as lunges and squats help tone the muscles and reduce fat on the body. Ballet-inspired workouts using a barre are excellent for toning and lengthening the muscles. Keep a healthy body weight, too: Yo-yo dieting can loosen the skin and make you prone to cellulite.”

Sutton, “Say Goodbye to Cellulite.”

SKIN & CELLULITE

“A direct positive effect of WBV on calcium metabolism and bone mineral density (BMD) has been clearly demonstrated. Rubin et al. carried on a RCT comparing the effects of low intensity vibration (LIV) (10 minutes twice a day) with those of an inactive placebo plate in a group of postmenopausal women. A decrease of 2% BMD was observed in the control group, whereas a 2.17% relative BMD increase was reported in the study group.”

“This study found that 6 months of high-frequency and high-magnitude WBV yielded significant benefits to the BMD of the lumbar spine in postmenopausal women, and could therefore be provided as an alternative exercise.”

Lai et al., “Effect of 6 Months of Whole Body Vibration on

Lumbar Spine Bone Density in Postmenopausal Women.”

“The results indicate graded whole-body vibration exposure may be effective in improving BMD by increasing bone deposition while also decreasing bone resorption. Whole-body vibration may also provide an efficient stratagem for young women to achieve peak bone mass and help stave off osteoporosis later in life and provide a novel form of physical training.”

“Whole Body Vibration substantially improves exercise capacity, physical performance, and Health-Related Quality of Life in patients with Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension who are on stable targeted therapy. This methodology may be utilised in structured training programmes, and may be feasible for continuous long-term physical exercise in these patients.”

Gerhardt et al., “Oscillatory Whole-Body Vibration Improves Exercise Capacity

and Physical Performance in Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension.”

“Arturo Figueroa, M.D., PhD, an associate professor at Florida State University, published the finding in the most recent issue of Journal of Human Hypertension that suggests the machines could reduce the chances of stroke and heart attack. Vibration also improves oxygenation to the body’s tissue and boosts blood flow. In 2011, vibration exercises were shown by Figueroa and his team to decrease arterial stiffness that can lead to “hardening of the arteries” that is atherosclerosis.Women in the newest study either had high blood pressure or what is known as “prehypertension” – blood pressure that is higher than normal but has not yet reached parameters requiring treatment. When blood pressure increases more strain is put on the heart. Lack of elasticity in the blood vessels obstructs blood flow and can lead to clot formation and stroke from high blood pressure. If you’re looking for a natural way to lower your blood pressure check out your local gym or consider purchasing a vibration plate exercise machine.”
