What is Controlled Whole Body Vibration?
Controlled Whole Body Vibration is a new type of fitness training and therapy that has a strong and direct impact on health, wellness and longevity. Mechanical vibrations used at the correct frequency and amplitude cause muscular contractions, better known as involuntary neuromuscular stretch reflex. Muscles are activated and trained very easily in a short period of time. Twelve exercises of one minute each can be equivalent to an hour work out at the gym. Vibration training with DKN X Series therefore has the effect of strengthening the muscles and increasing endurance, balance, explosiveness and flexibility.
What should you look for when purchasing cWBV equipment?
DKN X Series models only vibrate vertically and consistently across the whole platform. The human body is designed to absorb forces in a vertical direction, walking, jumping or running for instance. Shearing or horizontal forces are not absorbed and often result in injury to muscles, ligaments and joint capsules. Most sporting, work and motor vehicles related injuries are due to large horizontal forces on an area of the body that breaks the threshold of the structure that is being stressed (bone, ligament, tendon). There are dozens of WBV units that use tilting or rotational vibrating platforms instead of a true vertical vibration. Tilting platforms do not have a uniform amount of displacement across the platform. The platform vibrates on around a horizontal axis; therefore there is higher amplitude of vibration as you move away from the center of the platform. Rotational vibration is a combination of vertical and horizontal forces that combine to give a vibration effect. What are the long-term effects of non-vertical vibration? Non-vertical vibration can create harmful load or stress to joints, it can be harmful for the spine and the lower back, you can’t do upper body exercise or sit on an oscillating machine… and so on! It is not worth exposing your body to these forces when there are WBV units such as DKN those guarantees the vertical vibration of their units.
