How Vibration Works
During your workout you will stand on the vibration platform. The platform transmits small, rapid vibrations upward throughout your body. This causes an automatic muscle reflex reaction. The stress on your body is minimal, but the positive impact is great! As muscle tone, firmness & density increase, the metabolic rate goes up, since an increase in muscle mass rquires more energy.
The specific vibration rates available on the Proellixe machine have been developed based on the scientific study of results attained by test subjects using the machine.
The science behind Proellixe Vibration workouts has been developed in the former Soviet Union, Italy and the United States. Vibration training was first used in the Soviet Union 30 years ago in secret programs for athletes and ballet dancers. Dr. Carmelo Bosco in Italy extended the Soviet science and developed the concept of whole-body vibration. NASA, the United States space agency, conducted research with astronauts to prove the benefits of whole body vibration.
Seniors & People with Debilitating Health Conditions
After the age of 40, adults lose a quarter to a third of a pound of muscle a year and gain that much in body fat. For many seniors and people with debilitating health conditions, weight training, aerobics, running and other high impact training methods simply are not an option.
Vibration training is a low impact, non-strenuous and non-invasive workout. Vibration training is a simple solution to preventing age-related muscle loss. Not only does it improve muscle strength, but also increases flexibility and range of motion, enhances blood circulation, expeditates the recovery and regeneration of damaged tissue and ultimately enhances the general wellness and quality of life for individuals. The elderly often improve their balance and increase core stability because the vibrations stimulate the body's balancing mechanisms.
The revolutionary whole body vibration therapy is also suitable for people with medical conditions including heart disease, MS, osteoporosis and injuries that preclude more traditional high-impact cardiovascular exercise.
