Inspire faster muscle contractions that can be achieved during a typical workout for optimum results in as little as 10 minutes per day
We all know that exercise and remaining active is crucial to overall physical are mental well-being, but did you know that just 10 minutes on a vibration plate per day can have all the same health benefits, but they can be achieved much quicker? Indeed, WBV (whole body vibration) stimulates the central nervous system more effectively and inspires faster muscle contractions due to their involuntary nature.
WBV has a destabilising effect on the user and, to regain balance, the muscles are tensed or flexed accordingly. This occurs when the sensory muscle receptors detect vibrations/movement and signal the central nervous system to initiate the appropriate response. The stance adopted determines which muscle groups are activated and the varying frequency, amplitude and direction will dictate the results an intensity achieved. The following are just some of the health benefits that can be obtained by undergoing vibration therapy treatment:
- Weight Loss
- Reduced Stress Levels
- Improved Circulation & Cardiovascular Fitness
- Increased Flexibility – perform stretches & yoga poses on a vibration plate to enhance results
- Reduced Cellulite
- Better Balance & Proprioception
- Increased Bone Density
- Increased Strength
- Stronger Pelvic Floor Muscles & Reduced Incontinence
- Improved Muscle Tone & Definition
- Joint & Back Pain Relief
- Enhanced Lymphatic Drainage & Reduced Toxins in the Body
- Relief from Motor Function Impairment
- Vasodilation – Increased Flow of Oxygen & Nutrients
- Aids Recovery Post Workout – maximise your results!
Rid your body of toxins and increase immunity against viruses, bacteria & diseases
Whole body vibration improves natural lymphatic drainage by heightening movements in the skeletal muscles and smoothing muscle cells to pump the lymph from the tissues. Our lymphatic system is responsible for flushing out toxins but also carries essential chemicals to the antibodies to strengthen the immune system and help the body fight viruses, illnesses, and bacteria. In addition, it improves fluid balance throughout the body and fatty acid distribution. Inactivity causes toxins to accumulate in the lymph nodes and reduces the ability of the lymphatic system to perform its role effectively. This can potentially lead to more serious health complications, including Lymphedema (swelling, especially in the arms and legs). By boosting the body’s natural lymphatic drainage system, WBV improves overall health and well-being and protects against future illness; all without undergoing rigorous exercise regimes or expensive treatments!
Increase muscle strength & tone/definition
Using a vibration plate is a fantastic alternative to high-impact muscle strengthening exercises, such as resistance training. Indeed, it enables the user to build strength without putting undue stress and pressure on the body. Because vibration therapy increases the frequency and rate at which the muscles contract, it works the muscles harder and has the same, if not better, results without the need for increased mass. As the muscles become stronger, you’ll notice the tone and definition of the body start to change.
Boost metabolism, burn fat at a higher rate & achieve your weight loss goals
The contraction and subsequent relaxation of the muscles that occurs during vibration therapy burns energy. And, because the contractions are involuntary and occur at a much faster rate, this maximises energy expenditure during a workout. Burning more energy than you consume means you will start burning fat from your stored fat reserves. So, the increased energy expenditure from WBV combined with a healthy diet will lead to a calorie deficit, thereby resulting in weight loss.
Strengthen the bones & prevent osteoporosis
Using a vibration plate induces compression and remodelling of the bone tissue. By activating the osteoblasts (the cells responsible for bone growth), inhibiting the activity of osteoclasts (cells that absorb bone tissue) and increasing the force placed on the bones by the muscles, it increases bone mineral density over time. In addition, stimulating blood flow and improving circulation, WBV leads to better nutrient penetration of the bone tissue. Vibration therapy has also been used as a treatment for osteoporosis, arthritis, fibromyalgia, spina bifida, brittle bone, cerebral palsy, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s and more.
Reduce stress levels, alleviate anxiety & boost mood using vibration therapy
Want that ‘runner’s high’ without pounding the pavements? Get all the same benefits of running without putting extra pressure on the joints and bones! Vibration therapy naturally releases endorphins and elevates serotonin levels. With traditional exercise, this can take up to 30 minutes; however, because WBV increases CNS stimulation, this occurs much faster. In addition, cortisol, also known as the stress hormone, can be reduced by up to 30% when undergoing WBV. Reduced cortisol has been linked to improved sleep, healthy weight, improved mood, and increased energy.
Relieve back pain & speed up recovery post injury/workout
Stimulating involuntary muscle contractions throughout the body, including in the spine and bones, vibration therapy is an indispensable technology for those that are unable to perform conventional exercise due to weak bones and joints. As such, they will not only benefit from all the health benefits it has to offer, but they can use it to strengthen the source of weakness/injury. By increasing core strength, WBV strengthens the back and supports the spine, reducing back pain and improving posture. In addition, improved circulation increases blood flow and, therefore, carries more nutrients to injured/stressed tissues to speed up the recovery process.
Strengthen the pelvic floor muscles & alleviate incontinence using WBV
WBV stimulates up to 12 contractions per second, which cannot be achieved by routine pelvic floor exercise. In addition, it is low impact, unlike many other forms of exercise. As such, using a vibration plate to strengthen the pelvic floor muscles and reduce incontinence has become increasingly popular in recent times.
The Osalis Health and Fitness Tone & Flex Vibration Plate utilises a combination of movements for optimum results and a multitude of health benefits
This movement is also referred to as triangular, vertical alternate, pivotal or toggle vibration. The motor drives a toggle mechanism that elevates one side of the platform, then the other. Stimulating a wave of motion through the subcutaneous fat, burning calories, and boosting the metabolism, this type of vibration is used to aid weight loss. In addition, it strengthens the core muscles, increases tone/definition, and improves balance. Ideal for those that wish to improve athleticism, it has a similar impact on the body to running and walking, leading to improved cardiovascular fitness and improved circulation.
Horizontal vibration has been shown to improve balance, strength, flexibility, cardiovascular fitness, and circulation. Often used in hospitals and fitness centres, it is sometimes employed to aid the rehabilitation of hemiplegic patients (those with paralysis on one side of the body). Also reported to improve lower body strength, fear of falling and balance in the elderly, it can even lead to better control over blood sugar levels. This type of vibration is ideal for those with lower levels of mobility or with a reduced ability to exercise, but it is recommended.
When choosing the vibration type manually, it is possible to select oscillation, horizontal or 3D (a simultaneous combination of the two). It is also possible to adjust the speed and time using the S+/- and the T+/- buttons. Additionally, there are 3 pre-programmed speed increments of 60km/h, 120km/h and 180km/h that can be quickly and easily selected. Alternatively, you can choose one of the 5 pre-set programmes:
- Programme 1 – oscillating vibration. Recommended for weight loss, increased muscle strength, tone, and definition
- Programme 2 – horizontal vibration. Recommended for improved balance, flexibility, and circulation
- Programme 3 – horizontal, oscillating & 3D vibration. Recommended for weight loss, improved balance, flexibility, cardiovascular fitness, and strength
- Programme 4 – oscillating & 3D vibration. Recommended for weight loss, improved balance, flexibility, cardiovascular fitness, and strength
- Programme 5 – horizontal & 3D vibration - Recommended for weight loss, improved balance, flexibility, cardiovascular fitness, and strength
