The Origin of Vibration

1960-Former Soviet scientists trained astronauts with vertical vibration devices to solve the health issue on long-term being in space without gravity. Astronauts had to face muscle strength, bone density, and endocrine disorders in a gravity-free environment for a long time. After the Soviet astronauts trained using whole body vertical rhythm, the muscle and bone density increased greatly, and the time spent on the space station increased by as much as 300 days.

1980-Expanded the application to train athletes and greatly improved their performances and reduced chances of injuries.

2000-Further applied in rehabilitation medical field, this is a passive movement.

Vibration Fun Fact:
Do you know? The earliest inventor of vibration health equipment is also the inventor of Kellogg breakfast corn flakes and cereals. He was John HarveyKellogg, (1852-1943)

Vertical vibration training can trigger all organs of the body (such as organs, nerve tissues, bones in various parts of the human body) and systemic muscle contraction stimulation and achieve repeated exercise training results. Since 1970, a large number of studies have been published in the International Journal of Medicine and Sports, and the effectiveness of Whole Body VerticalVibration (WBVV)exercise has been confirmed.

The theory of vertical vibration originates from the fact that the growth and movement of the human body are affected by the gravity of the earth, and the effect of gravity on the ground is vertical. In simple terms, the vertical vibration of the whole body is to change the musculoskeletal and nervous system of the body through the physical action of gravity, and then affect the endocrine and other body systems to produce various health benefits.

The Whole Body VerticalVibration (WBVV)device was first developed by Soviet scientists in the 1970s and was used to train Soviet astronauts to improve astronaut muscle strength, bone density, improve endocrine disorders, and extend the life of astronauts on the space station. At that time, the American astronauts only used conventional sports machine training. Due to muscle atrophy and bone degradation, they could only stay in space for 120 days. But Soviet astronauts spent 420 days in space through vertical vibration training, i.e. 3.5 times longer than American astronauts. Vertical vibration has since attracted worldwide attention. This new type of sports equipment was widely used in training athletes in the 1980s. The performance of athletes significantly improved, which attracted the attention of European countries at that time, and was widely studied and implemented. After the 21st century, it has been further expanded to be used in rehabilitation medicine, sports medicine, beauty, slimming and fitness clubs.

Nowadays, the vibration principle is not only widely used to train athletes, but also has significant effects on rehabilitation and sports medicine in the medical field. In many countries, vibration therapy has also been used in the rehabilitation departments of some large hospitals for sports injuries, strokes, and some patients who need rehabilitation.

The Principle of Vibration

Whole Body Vertical Vibration (WBVV)

The Whole Body Vertical Vibration (WBVV) machine can regulate and reduce the risk of hidden sub-health problems existing in the human body through the vibration of the human body from the bottom up, from the outside to the inside, through the capillaries.

Without increasing the cardiopulmonary load, Whole Body Vertical Vibration(WBVV) waves gently stimulate every part of the body, from cells, muscles, nervous system, blood vessels, bones to the internal organs of the viscera. This is similar to the theory ofrope skipping and Qigong. It is the same to produce a harmonious vibration in the body to achieve health effects. This method has obvious effects on human bone density, muscle strengthening, internal organs, skin elasticity, blood circulation system, endocrine system, nervous system, sense of balance, stimulation of growth hormone secretion, muscle relaxation and fatigue recovery. No other sport is comparable.

After years of scientific research and medical studies, it has been found that vertical vibration has shown significant effects in the prevention and treatment of many diseases. In more than 1,000 articles published in the past two decades, it has been proved that vertical vibration can effectively prevent osteoporosis and increase muscle strength balance, and provide benefits for subsequent rehabilitation treatments such as spinal injury, stroke, cerebral palsy, Parkinson's syndrome, etc.

Whole Body Vertical Vibration (WBVV) is suitable for people who:
  • Don’t have time for exercise or training
  • Experience reduced mobility
  • Seniors or disabled who want to build muscle and avoid muscle loss
  • Need to increase bone density
  • Need to rehabilitate or relieve sports injuries
  • Want to prevent 3 high diseases
  • are obese and in need of sculpting their figures
  • Experience knee joint degeneration
  • Experience insomnia, poor sleep quality
  • Have hormonal disorders

The Whole Body Vertical Vibration (WBVV) machine uses the mechanical force to push the human body upwards. When the mechanical force stops, the human body naturally falls by the gravity of the earth. Within a certain time interval and vibration frequency, it can produce an unique type of impact on the body, and the vertical vibration dynamic wave transfers to the body, the human body transmits this thrust through bones, muscles and spine, which can stimulate every part of the body, from cells, blood vessels, nervous system, skeletal tissues, to organs and muscles, and then cause the muscles to contract and relax at equal frequencies to achieve the effect of sports training.

Whole Body Vertical Vibration (WBVV) movements are similar to rope skipping and Wai Dan Gong, but ropes skipping and Wai Dan Gong are active movements, while the vertical movements of the whole body are passive. Whole Body Vertical Vibration (WBVV) is a fast, small amplitude, strictly controlled intensity and direction vibration, so it can produce health benefits. If the vibration is too strong or irregular, it will hurt the body. It is often caused by uncontrolled vibration. For example, the practice of pneumatic drills can cause neuromuscular vascular disease.

There are three variables that need to be controlled by the Whole Body Vertical Vibration (WBVV): direction, time, and intensity. The intensity of the vibration is determined by the frequency domain amplitude, and is gravity (g). The vertical vibration of the whole body needs to conform to the laws of human movement, so the amplitude is usually controlled between 1-10 cm, and the intensity is controlled at 1 gravity. And the long-term vibration will cause the vibration absorbed in the body to be too large, and the vertical vibration motor has a time control switch, which can control the vibration within a suitable time range. It can be seen that the Whole Body Vertical Vibration (WBVV) is a kind of vibration with constant speed, small amplitude, and strict control of intensity and direction, completely avoiding the damage caused by the random vibration frequency or high vibration frequency.

The Whole Body Vertical Vibration (WBVV) is a non-drug, non-invasive exercise therapy. It has been studied by many scholars in the United States, Japan, Belgium, the Soviet Union (now Russia), and Taiwan.

The Benefits of Whole Body Vertical Vibration (WBVV)

After conducting this vibration, the whole body is in a relaxed state, the blood vessels are dilated, the blood flow resistance is reduced, and blood circulation throughout the body, including microvascular circulation, is accelerated. As the body cells rely on the oxygen and nutrients transported by the blood, the cells in the whole body are fully nourished and the human body is naturally healthy when the blood circulation flow is smooth.

Healthy blood circulation can also improve the necrosis of the end of the hands and feet caused by various soreness, paralysis, cold,high blood sugar, and even cardiovascular diseases such as hypertension, stroke, and heart disease.

In addition, the mild impact force produced by vibration can reduce risk of osteoporosis, high blood sugar, excessive visceral fat, and obesity.

Through the utilization of vertical vibration machine, chronic diseases such as obesity, slow growth of children, chronic constipation, fibromyalgia, and chronic fatigue can achieve significant results.

The 6 Major Principles of Whole Body Vertical Vibration (WBVV)

1. Promotes the differentiation of mesenchymal stem cells-can relieve diseases: osteoporosis, arthritis, obesity, adolescent development problems. Mesenchymal stem cells are one of the stem cells types in the body. Mesenchymal stem cells, also known as multifunctional mesenchymal stem cells, can be differentiated into various tissue cells derived from the mesoderm during the embryonic period, such as fatCells, osteoblasts, and chondrocytes to form fats, hard bone, and cartilage.
  • The Whole Body Vertical Vibration (WBVV) promotes the differentiation of mesenchymal stem cells into osteoblasts, so it can promote bone regeneration, stimulate the growth of bone plates, increase the opportunity for young people to grow taller, and then increase bone density.
  • At the same time, vibration also inhibits the differentiation of mesenchymal stem cells into adipocytes, thereby reducing body fat.
  • Vibration promotes the differentiation of mesenchymal stem cells into chondrocytes, effectively reducing joint degeneration.
2. Promotes Qi and blood circulation; can reduce the risk of diseases: obesity, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, gastrointestinal absorption problems, cold hands and feet, chronic fatigue.
  • The Whole Body Vertical Vibration(WBVV) can accelerate the blood flow of the whole body's vasodilation, improve the peripheral microcirculation, thereby reducing the burden of cardiopulmonary, increase the rate of cell metabolism throughout the body, and increase the rate of exchange of oxygen and carbon dioxide by 60 trillion cells throughout the body, so it can promote cell metabolism and improve cellsthe utilization rate of glucose.
  • After the blood flow is accelerated, it can promote the blood flow of peripheral capilaries, increase the speed of venous return, reduce the problem of slowing microcirculation of the body due to age, and stay away from metabolic syndrome.
3. Promotes nitric oxide (NO) secretion by vascular endothelial cells can reduce risk of diseases: hypertension, stroke, myocardial infarction, diabetes, sexual dysfunction, inflammation, immunity enhancement, menopausal symptoms.
  • Vibration promotes Qi and blood circulation, and accelerated blood flow stimulates endothelial cells to secrete nitric oxide (NO).
  • Nitric oxide can dilate blood vessels and lower blood pressure, and it can reduce CRP (inflammation response protein), improve inflammatory response, and promote tissue repair ability of whole body cells.
  • Reducing the inflammation of cells can reduce risk of many chronic diseases caused by inflammation, such as diabetes and hypertension.
4. Improves hormone secretion can reduce risk of diseases: diabetes, osteoporosis, cardiovascular disease, adolescent developmental problems, stroke, myocardial infarction, obesity. Vertical rhythmic energy throughout the body promotes the secretion of the following hormones:
  • Promotes adiponectin secretion:
    • Adiponectin is produced and secreted by adipocytes and is involved in maintaining the balance of glucose and lipids in the body.
    • Human plasma contains a high concentration of adiponectin. Adiponectin is inversely related to body fat mass and body mass index (BMI). When the concentration of adiponectin in the plasma is low, the body fat or BMI will increase.
    • Decrease in adiponectin is also related to insulin resistance. Studies have found that when the concentration of adiponectin in blood is high, it can increase the sensitivity of insulin, increase glucose metabolism and inhibit glucose synthesis in the liver, and at the same time reduce body fat.
  • Promotes the secretion of osteocalcin:
    • The Whole Body Vertical Vibration(WBVV) promotes the differentiation of mesenchymal stem cells into osteoblasts and promotes bone regeneration; at the same time, the new osteoblasts also secrete osteocalcin and promote calcium into bone cells.
  • Promotes the secretion of insulin:
    • Osteocalcin stimulates the pancreas to produce more insulin without burdening the pancreas.
  • Promotes the secretion of growth hormone (IGF-1, GH):
    • The Whole Body Vertical Vibration (WBVV) stimulates the pituitary gland to secrete growth hormone, which in turn increases the concentration of growth hormone in the blood by more than 400%.
  • Promotes the prevention of thrombosteroid (t-PA) secretion:
    • The full name of t-PA is tissue-type plasminogen activator (t-PA), which is an important factor in promoting thrombolysis in the body. It can help dissolve thrombus, reduce the risk of vascular embolism and infarction, and avoid risk of myocardial infarction and stroke.
  • Whole Body Vertical Vibration(WBVV) can increase transforming growth factor β-1 (48%)
    • This is a transmission factor that secretes messages from immune cells and is a protein that enhances immunity.
  • Whole Body Vertical Vibration(WBVV) can increase tumour death factor-α (TNF-α) by 38%,
    • This is a message-transmitting factor secreted by macrophages and acts to fight the body's inflammatory response.
  • May increase male testosterone and promote female hormone secretion
5. Effectively improves the autonomic nervous system function, can reduce risk of diseases: hypertension, constipation, male sexual dysfunction, sleep disorders.
  • Parasympathetic nerves and sympathetic nerves control the smooth muscles and glands of the human body, but they have opposite effects
  • Whole Body Vertical Vibration (WBVV) improves parasympathetic nerve function, which in turn reduces the heartbeat rate, promotes vasodilation of the whole body, and reduces blood pressure.
  • Promotes gastrointestinal motility, relieves constipation, reduce psychological stress, increase scerebrospinal fluid and sacral fluid secretion, and promotes male genital erectile function.
6. Strengthens the musculoskeletal tissues of the whole body; can reduce risk of diseases: osteoporosis, arthritis, obesity, preventing the elderly from falling.
  • The vertical movement of the upper and lower body can continuously contract and stretch the whole body muscles, increase collagen, increase muscle strength and muscle mass, and then tighten the skin, sculpting a perfect body curve, while burning calories and reducing body fat.
  • Improved muscle strength can activate the whole body skeletal muscle system and improve limb coordination, especially the elderly who have gait instability and can prevent falls, and activate joint tissues to improve degenerative arthritis and joint pain.

Whole Body Periodic Acceleration (WBPA)

A Whole Body Periodic Acceleration(WBPA)equipment is a device that allows people to lie down and receive back and forth, head to toe, horizontal vibrations. Studies show that Whole-body Periodic Acceleration energy stimulates the production of more nitric oxide, which can greatly increase blood flow to organs, especially the heart and brain, and more effectively improve various heart and blood vessel diseases such as heart disease, arteriosclerosis, ischemic myocarditis, stroke, etc.

Suitable for:

  • Patients with heart and blood vessel related diseases such as heart disease, stroke, vascular obstruction, arteriosclerosis, angina pectoris, myocardial infarction, heart failure.
  • Rehabilitation and maintenance after stroke.
  • People who want to prevent stroke, second stroke, heart disease
  • The paralyzed

Whole Body Periodic Acceleration (WBPA) clinical research has a history of 30 years. It consists of a person lying on a specially manufactured devicecapable of translating back and forth parallel to the ground, along the head-to-foot axis with different speeds according to your physical condition. The body moves through repeated horizontal vibrations. This horizontal movement along the direction of the human spine will produce moderate blood flow shear forces on the blood vessels of the human body, and then stimulate the endothelial cell tissue of the blood vessels to secrete a large amount of nitric oxide. Nitric oxide can easily and quickly penetrate the blood vessel wall, expand the blood vessels, increase blood flow in the blood vessels, and activate the cells in the whole body.

Whole Body Periodic Acceleration (WBPA)is currently the non-invasive treatment found in the world. It is the safest and most effective way for brain, cardiovascular disease and health care. The optimal vibration for this exercise is 20 mm. The benefits of Whole Body Periodic Acceleration(WBPA) depend on the distance of the vibration. If the frequency shortens, the efficacy decreases.

The Health Benefits of Whole Body Periodic Acceleration (WBPA)
After more than ten years of experiments and research, Whole Body Periodic Acceleration(WBPA)has been proven to benefit the human body in ways:

  1. Effectively prevent and improve hypoxic heart disease.
  2. Effectively prevent and improve cerebral infarction and thrombus stroke.
  3. Effectively reduce the risk of myocardial infarction and sequelae.
  4. Effectively treat pulmonary hypertension and improve cardiopulmonary function.
  5. Effectively prevent and improve peripheral microvascular circulation and diseases.
  6. Effectively prevent and improve diabetes and hypertension.
  7. Improve the cell's antioxidant power and increase the survival rate in the first aid.
  8. Reduce cardiovascular sequelae due to hypoxia during first aid.
