Vibration Exercise technology has been studied since the 1970′s by the medical and scientific communities. This research originally started with the Soviet Space Program, in their effort to keep astronauts in space for longer periods of time. The problem was that after 3 months in space, so much bone and muscle loss occurs due to absence of gravity that it can cause irreversible damage. Russian scientists began to experiment with Vibration Exercise technology to combat this serious problem. They found that vibration at the correct frequency not only was able to simulate gravity but stimulated bone and muscle growth.
The Russian space program set a world record of longest time spent in space of 420 days. This baffled the USA space program as their longest duration was 120 days due to bone and muscle loss. Once the Iron curtain fell, the Russians secret was revealed and it is now used worldwide for health and fitness. Vibration fitness now has widespread acceptance in the fields of medicine, sports training, rehabilitation, chiropractics, physio therapy, and general overall health fields.
