Whole Body Vibration
Neuromuscular Reeducation through Whole Body Vibration
The Vibe Whole-Body Vibration (WBV) platform is different from other whole-body vibration platform in three significant ways.
First, the purpose of the platform is unique. Unlike most WBV platforms, it is not designed for personal fitness, weight loss, or strength training. The purpose of The Vibe is specifically Neuro-Muscular Re-education (NMR) and postural remodeling. It is designed to be used along with weights and cantilevers that are placed on the body in a manner that is specific and individualized for each patient to correct postural and spinal abnormalities.
Second, the frequency and amplitude are fixed at a specific frequency that has been shown through research and clinical trials to be ideal for this purpose. The accuracy and specificity of these settings is very important, and unchangeable. This emphasizes the specific nature of The Vibe for Neuro-Muscular Re-education therapy.
Third, the manner in which the vibration is induced into the body is also unique. Unlike most platforms, which utilize either vertical (one-dimensional) or oscillating (two-dimensional) vibration, The Vibe uses an off-set rotating cam design to create multi-axial vibration in all three-dimensions. This is also necessary in order to achieve the best possible results with NMR therapy.
