Vibration Relieves Chronic Constipation

According to research, Whole Body Vertical Vibration(WBVV) can help the contraction of visceral muscles, stimulate gastrointestinal motility, and ultimately relieve chronic constipation. In particular, constipation due to inactivity (such as restricted mobility, stroke, paralysis, and inability to walk on both feet) is more effective.

Constipation is a headache for most people as it is often difficult to describe the discomfort that is affecting one’s quality of life. People prone to constipation includes:

  1. The elderly: The percentage of people > 60 years old who suffer from constipation has reached 20%
  2. Women: The ratio of men to women suffering from constipation is 1: 4
  3. Children: Many children have mild constipation, and this situation is increasing year by year
  4. People with weak constitution and chronic illness,bedridden, and walking abnormalities have the highest proportion of suffering from constipation

Principle of Vibration to Relieve Gastrointestinal Problems

  1. Improves parasympathetic nerve function
    • After the parasympathetic nerve is stimulated, it will promote gastrointestinal motility.
  2. Stimulates neuromuscular conduction function and tendon reflex.
    • Promotes the sensitivity of intestinal smooth muscles, performs intestinal massage exercise with vibration and promote bowel movements.
  3. Improves blood circulation
    • The Whole Body Vertical Vibration(WBVV) makes the blood vessels dilate to make the body's 60 trillion cells get more oxygen and nutrients, and promote the absorption function of intestinal villi and epithelial cells.
