VibroGym training works so that you can achieve rapid improvements in muscle strength, range of motion and flexibility, ranging from neurophysiological inhibition, neural stretching, myofascial release and isometric stretching your increasing range of motion beyond that obtained with static stretching.

Studies show that VibroGym causes reflex muscle contractions to occur between 30-50 times per second and after each contraction the muscle has to relax before contracting again. All of that activity causes a change in your nervous system, allowing your muscles to stretch further.

This muscle activity increases circulation to the muscles and joints, allowing the joints to become lubricated and easier to move. Whole Body Vibration training (WBV) produces a vibration which transfers energy to the body, causing a stretch reflex called the Tonic Vibration Reflex (TVR). The TVR muscle contractions happen 30-50 times a second, depending on which frequency you choose (30Hz to 50Hz). They will fatigue the muscles and stimulate them to strengthen. This high speed means that in a 1 min exercise at 40 Hz WBV, your muscle will have contracted 60×40 = 2400 times. In just a 20 minute session, you can achieve effective training of your entire body including stretching, because VibroGym stimulates the whole muscular system not just one muscle at a time.

Another major advantages of VibroGym training is that it can activate muscles that are not used very frequently, and can also be used to massage a tight muscle into a relaxed state, to allow the muscle to stretch more easily.

In a 2010 study Scand J Med Sci Sports. it was proven that WBV training increases muscle strength and mass in older women: in a ten week randomized-controlled trial.

Many sports professionals including Olympic teams use vibration training for the benefits of strength, balance and flexibility to enhance performance and recovery.

Hamstring tightness is common even among physically active individuals. In addition to limiting range of motion and increasing the risk of muscular strain, hamstring tightness contributes to a variety of other conditions.

J Sport Rehabil 2013 .Four studies demonstrated statistically significant improvements in hamstring flexibility in physically active young adults.

Vibration platform can target  different muscles and muscle groups such as your core muscles which are the most important muscle group in your body. They dictate how your entire body functions. Whole Body Vibration training activates the muscles in your pelvis, lower back, hips and abdomen to work in harmony. This leads to better balance and stability.

You only have to work for 20 minutes 3 times a week, to get better results than your conventional workout, because the movement and vibrations allow you to achieve better results, faster, on a VibroGym.

Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness (DOMS)

The VibroGym can help reduce Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness (DOMS) and speed the recovery of muscle power after intense exercise.

The role of vibratory massage on treating delayed onset muscle soreness.

Pietzsch FJG. University of Brighton (2004) (MSWord file)

‘The findings within this study suggest that vibratory massage may also be a useful rehabilitation intervention for those individuals who suffer from delayed onset muscle soreness. This would have implications upon employment of masseurs and open a debate to determine their necessity. In turn this may make the role of masseurs redundant and reduce on-going rehabilitation costs.’
