ReCharge Whole Body Vibration (WBV) works as a wake up call to the complete neuro-musculo-skeletal system.

This controlled MOTION IS TRANSFERRED UP THROUGH YOUR BODY. 

Similar to Plyometrics, WBV ACTIVATES MORE MUSCLE FIBERS  via the stretch reflex, the “Tonic Vibratory Reflex”

                             •All the Physiological Benefits of Exercise         •Increased Circulation                                                                           •Increased Lymphatic Drainage                          •Increased Bone Density

                             •Increase Oxygenation                                       •Better Strength and Flexibility

                             •Lowered Cortisol                                              •Increased HGH

All of your body tissues are FORCED TO REACT to the stimulus of the vibrating platform.  Blood flow increases considerably and more oxygen gets circulated throughout your body.  Lymphatic drainage improves which aids in detoxification and increased bone mineral density.

The way you position your body on the vibrating platform determines what tissues are affected.  You have complete control over the body part you want to target and how challenging the workout is. Patients can stand, sit or place any body part on the WBV platform to feel the effect. By adding active range of motion, and even resisted range of motion activities to the WBV protocol, the patient will often see immediate increase in pain free range of motion after only 10 -15 minutes of therapy.

 

VERTICAL IS THE PREFERED VIBRATION

Whole Body Vibration or (WBV) is relatively new concept in training, exercise and sports rehab. WBV utilizes vibration stimulus to incite an involuntary response in the nerves, muscles and ligaments. Mechanoreceptors, that include muscle spindles, and Golgi Tendon Organs (GTOs for short) are the sensory organs of the muscle which are sensitive to mechanical stimulation. Muscle spindles send information to higher cortical centers in the brain with information on the tension of the muscle, causing the muscle to contract when excited. Conversely, when the GTO (which is located inside muscle tendons) is excited, it causes the muscle to relax.

 

During traditional, non-vibration muscle contraction during weight lifting only recruits 30-40% of the muscle fibers. In contrast, when stimulated by vibration, the muscle spindles, tendons and GTOs send impulses to the brain and cause the muscles to contract and relax at the rate of vibration; a phenomenon called Tonic Vibration Reflex (TVR). This response recruits nearly 100% of the muscle fibers in contraction and enhances neuromuscular efficiency.  Skeletal muscles contract and release at the same frequency of the vibration. So, for example, if standing in a squat position on the vibration platform set at 30 Hz, muscles will contract and release 900 times in a 30 second session. These numbers would be impossible to stimulate during a normal exercise regime.

 

The mechanical rationale behind using WBV is simple, yet powerful.  Utilizing perhaps the most well known formula in all of physics, that of Issac Newton's Second Law of Motion:  Force = Mass X Acceleration. In traditional strength training, force production is primarily affected by Mass or increasing load by adding weight to an exercise. In WBV therapy, the acceleration variant is manipulated. The acceleration variable is increased as the result of the platform rapidly moving up and down at a specific frequency. Amplitude and frequency can be adjusted to a degree on this machine. WBV is used in the space program to help prevent muscle & bone loss in space where there is no gravitation forces on the body.

 

Optimal frequency has been confirmed in numerous papers to be in the 20 Hz - 50Hz range. The acceleration forces resulting from the vibration cause the muscles to contract. Due to this involuntary contraction of the muscles, many more muscle fibers are recruited than a voluntary movement (see Issurin & Tenebaum, 1999). EMG results further confirm this (see Bosco, et. al. 1999, and Delecluse et. al. 2003). The rapid contraction and relaxation of muscles in the 25 - 50 times per second range also works as a pump on both the circulatory and lymphatic systems, increasing blood flow and lymphatic drainage throughout the body (see Kershan - Schindle et. al 2001 and Lohman et. al. 2007).

 

Vibration therapy for circulation is something that is increasing in importance, especially for the elderly and diabetic population. Over the last few years, circulation seemed a distant thought in everyone’s minds when they were looking to see how vibration therapy would be beneficial. There seemed to be more focus on bone density, fat loss, and sports performance. However, we’re going to take a look at a new study that is beginning to show the positive benefits of vibration therapy for circulation.

 

In the past, various vibration therapy research studies have shown a substantial increase in circulation and blood flow. A recent research study decided to pursue similar research, but added various other modalities to the mix. We know that vibration therapy increases circulation, but can it be something that you can use with other forms of physical therapy to enhance the effects? In a study in the Medical Science Monitor journal, researchers evaluated not only vibration therapy, but also moist heat. The study evaluated the effects of various modalities, such as active vibration, passive vibration alone, moist heat alone, moist head combined with passive vibration, a commercial massaging heating pad, and no intervention. The study dealt with relatively healthy older men. The conclusion from the study showed that skin blood flow in the legs was the greatest in the group that consisted of moist heat combined with passive vibration. The skin blood flow increased by 450% after 10 minutes of the therapy and stayed at about 379% for 10 minutes after the vibration therapy treatment.

 

Previous research has shown that vibration therapy can increase circulation. Vibration therapy  can have a positive effect for healing of burns. Adding it to other forms of treatment will certainly enhance the results of the treatment.  These results correspond directly with our experiences on the effects of vibration therapy for circulation. We’ve seen the effects in a wide variety of cases, such as diabetic neuropathy, restless leg syndrome, venous insufficiency, chronic low back pain and disc herniation with radiculopathy (sciatica), and healing of ulcers. These type of results were nothing short of amazing, considering that most of these patients were resistant to various other forms of therapy prior to seeking treatment with vibration therapy.

The diabetic neuropathy patients were limited by pain and lack of mobility to engage in a sufficient amount of exercise to generate muscle contracts that would help increase circulation. The same could be said for most of the health conditions listed here. Vibration therapy has been showed that it can be an effective form of exercise therapy for increasing circulation.

Vertical movement is preferred by medical professionals and trainers alike. Reason is, vertical vibration is natural movement. When you walk or run, your feet, arms, legs are moving up and down. NOT sideways or in a circular motion. VibePlate is designed in a way that all it reproduces is vertical vibration. VibePlate is a stable, stationary vibration platform. There is no wobble, no side to side movement, no circular motion. Those movements are not real world, they are not real physics. Medical professionals say, because of gravity, vertical motion on a stable platform is. Therefore it does not create stress, unlike other whole body vibration platforms. Simply it provides micro hits of gravity that enhances the gravity that is already there in order to create the clinical and training compression that we need to excite our nerves, to mobilize joints and to strengthen our muscles to enhance our function.
