Vibration training with VIBRAFIT®
What is vibration training?
Vibration training, also called biomechanic muscle stimulation, is an innovative training method for fast and intensive fitness training. Mechanic vibrations impact the stretch reflex, causing muscle contractions in the body. Vibration training was already applied successfully in astronautics during the 1970s. In medicine, vibration training aids in the building of muscle strength, improvement of coordination and contributes to a higher bone density.
Why is vibration training so effective?
As opposed to fitness training with ordinary machines, vibration training also effectively exercises the deep muscle tissue, which contributes greatly to body stabilisation. This means that nearly 100% of the skeletal muscles are active during this training method. In just a short period of time the vibrations cause a high number of muscle contractrions. With this in mind, vibration training is an excellent add-on to medical training therapy as well as physiotherapy.
Who can use vibration training?
Vibration training should not take any longer than 10 minutes and can be applied in the following situations:
• Building muscle after immobilisation
• Improvement of muscle strength and muscle performance
• Improvement of coordination
• Boosting blood circulation
• Effective full body training
What are the orthopaedic indicators?
• Muscular strength deficit after surgery
• Joint replacement and arthropathy in knees or hips
• Non-acute herniated discs
• Non-specific back pain
• Postural damage and foot deformities
