Whole Body Vibration is a type of exercise using a vibrating base, which delivers a mechanical stimulus characterized by oscillatory motion at approximately 1 to 15 mm rise creating 5hz to 50hz or cycles per second throughout the body.
Whole body vibration exposes the entire body to vibration, as opposed to localized vibration (Biomechanical Stimulation), whe re an isolated muscle or muscle group is stimulated. WBV exercise platforms enable you to recruit many more muscles than traditional exercise and trigger other whole-body reactions.
WBV causes an involuntary reflex muscle contraction at 5-50 times per second compared to once or twice a second normally, thereby recruiting both fast and slow twitch muscle fibers during a vibration session. Biomechanical parameters include amplitude, frequency, and duration.
A ten minute vibration session provides similar health benefits to 60 minutes of traditional cardiovascular, neuromuscular and flexibility exercise training.
