Apparently, the old saying "if you don't use it, you lose it" especially applies when exploring space. WBV therapy simulates and even exceeds the beneficial impact of gravitational forces on the human body.
The powerful health and fitness benefits produced by WBV are achieved with minimal body motion and time invested. The extreme efficiency is due to the high frequency and intensity of muscle contractions caused by the vibrational wave. In fact, WBV workouts must be limited to the maximum time of 10 minutes per day. The WBV workout requires limited body movement, as patients are instructed to maintain different static postural positions (standing, one leg standing, sitting, push up, squat, etc.) for up to 1 minute per prescribed pose. The ability to effectively exercise the static (non-moving) body is a unique advantage to WBV rehabilitation therapy because patient movement often is compromised.
Due to its many health benefits, backed by scientific research, WBV therapy is becoming more and more prevalent. Health professionals of all types, including orthopedists, chiropractors, physical therapists, neurologists, etc., are incorporating this effective rehabilitation modality. Due to the competitive advantage gained by WBV therapy, many professional athletes, sports teams, NASA, U.S. Olympic Training Center and major universities have incorporated it into their regular fitness routine. Prominent professional athletes such as LeBron James, Shaquille O'Neal, Lance Armstrong, J.D. Drew and others are reported users. Due to its powerful weight management and physically rejuvenating impact many prominent celebrities (Madonna, Gloria Estefan, Clint Eastwood, Jane Fonda, Heidi Klum) have become WBV therapy enthusiasts.
