Whole Body Vibration - A History.
Modern vibration training was used in the sixties by a Dr Biermann in Germany, but in the same era, the Russian scientist, Nazarov, observed a substantial increase in flexibility and strength in athletes using vibration training techniques. The Russian Space Institute found that astronauts exhibited muscle atrophy and bone loss during periods of weightlessness in space, and that biomechanical stimulation (vibrations) counteracted this phenomena.
Finally, after the easing of relations, the West could finally profit from the information and experience gained from their new friends in the East! Whole Body Vibration (WBV) is now used worldwide in sports, fitness, aesthetics, rehabilitation and medical therapies and many papers have been written. Effects described in the studies include muscle strength and toning, cellulite reduction, improved bone density, heightened secretion of hormones associated with exercise, and the depressed response of hormones associated with stress.
How it works.
More muscle fibres are activated under the influence of vibration than in normal conscious muscle contractions. Due to this, muscles are incited more efficiently. High energy lineal machines such as the ProVibe, give a lineal/upward vibration which elicits a strong stretch-reflex contraction in muscle fibres. The immediate effect of WBV is that the muscles can be used quickly and efficiently, rendering them capable of using more force. Another immediate effect of WBV is an improvement in circulation. The rapid contraction and relaxation of the muscles at 20 to 50 times per second, works as a pump on the blood and lymphatic vessels, increasing the speed of the blood flow through the body.
