Vibration Therapy Units, Whole Body

Definition : Equipment designed to provide mechanical vibrations to the whole body. This equipment typically consists of an electrically powered floor platform (i.e., a vibration platform) with internal motors and a mechanism that provides low frequency (e.g., 20-50 Hz) vibration (e.g., oscillating, pivotal) to the whole body while the person stands on the platform. The units frequently include a vertical handle for user support and controls for the frequency and intensity (i.e., amplitude) of the vibrations; some devices include pre-established and/or custom designed vibration programs. Whole body vibration therapy units are intended to increase bone density, as well as prevent and/or stop the progression of osteoporosis and associated bone fractures. These units may be also used for other physical therapy treatments after trauma.

The first model that was produced was the VT100 as we wanted a machine that could be used by everyone regardless of their physical condition. We knew that the older generation could benefit greatly from the technology but that they would need something to hold onto while using the machine. The VT100 met that need with arms surrounding them on three sides. There are several on the market that look similar to ours but the quality of the components is not the same. Pin a side by side comparison it is easy to see a remarkable difference in the quality and the noise produced by each. The VT100 is a quiet machine.
