The crippling disease of osteoporosis caused by the leaching of calcium from bones is becoming increasingly common in today’s world. It especially targets post-menopausal women and older men and women, who lead sedentary lives.
The largest bones such as the hip bones, pelvic bones, femur, wrists are first to release the calcium.
Osteoporosis sufferers will be recommended to make changes in lifestyle that include exercise and diet as well as calcium supplements and/or medication.
Training on a VibroGym is the safest and easiest form of exercise proven to combat (even reverse) osteoporosis as it provides the necessary (and beneficial) stress to the bone that causes it to increase in mass and density and therefore in strength.
Physical activity is the key to providing the oxygenation your body needs to function properly.
VibroGym does this safely because is low impact on your muscles and joints.
The Vibration of the platform produces an involuntary muscle contraction known as ‘stretch reflex’. The speed of the oscillation can produce multiple contractions per second, which accelerates the natural muscle reflex action five or more times as quickly and thoroughly compared to traditional exercise found in the gym or fitness center.
VibroGym training is a natural osteoporosis therapy that can be done for only 20 minutes a day, three to four times a week and results can be seen in as little as six to eight weeks.
It is ideal for those with limited mobility and will also improve flexibility, muscle strength and stamina.
Numerous studies have examined the benefits of vibration training on bone density “vibration is proving useful in other areas of bone health especially people who have fractures, studies show vibrations slow stem cell proliferation, which leads to more stem cells becoming bone calls rather than continuing on to make more stem cells”.
