Whole Body Vertical Vibration Training

The Evolution of WBVV

Whole Body Vertical Vibration Training
1900 discovered by Dr. Kellogg / 1960 for astronaut training / 1980 for athletes training / 2000 for rehabilitation care and sports medicine

The concept of WBVV training was originated in the year of 1900, Dr. John Harvey Kellogg (1852~1943) invented vibrating chair for the patients. In the 1960s, the vertical vibration equipment was for training of astronauts, thus, the Soviet Union adopted vibration training to promote the muscle strength, bone density and endocrine system of the astronauts, further facilitate their body condition to extend the living time in the zero-gravity space.
 
As a matter of fact, when people are in the non-gravity space, the muscles shrink, furthermore, the spine, the hip bone and the thigh bone suffer great bone loss at rates of 1%~1.6% per month. Therefore, the issue above needs to be properly settled. If not, astronauts won’t be able to stay in outer space for more than 300 days. However, though the training of vertical vibration, the Soviet’s astronauts can stay there for 437 day, far more than American’s space team. Thus, people in the world get to know the idea of vibration.

In the 1980s, the vertical vibration equipment is further applied in the athlete training, and the training method is called “Whole Body Vertical Vibration”. The statistics show that the records and the performances are improved after the vibration training. WBVV has been widely studied and applied then. In the 21st century, the invention is further applied into medical field, such as rehabilitation care and sports medicine.


The Principle of WBVV
Cell / Endocrine System / Blood Vessel / Neuro System / Internal Organ / Bone / Muscle
The principle of WBVV is because of the gravity, all the human growth and exercise are strongly influenced by the gravity force, its vertical force on the human body is from up to down, and the exercise effect to be achieved inside out. That is to say, the basic principle of WBVV is based on the gravity change. The change can first affect the musculoskeletal nervous system, and then the endocrine and other physiological systems. In the end, it benefits our health. And it is simultaneously the most natural, the safest and the most effect exercise method.
Under the circumstances without cardiopulmonary burden, the vibration force penetrates through the plate of equipment, it is by the way of sinusoidal (high-frequency oscillating) to bring you move up and down, and the same speed periodical movement stimulate each part of your body mildly, from cells, blood vessels, muscles, neuro system, endocrine system, bones and internal organs, the pure vertical impact repeatedly train your body.
In the sports medicine field, the best way of exercise is to relax your body to the maximum level, this shall induces the contraction and expansion, further promote the metabolic circulation.
Thus, the more your body relaxes, the more your blood vessels expand, meanwhile, the lower resistance of your blood flow gets, and then the peripheral circulation reaches the perfect status, your heart and lung get the least burden. Therefore, WBVV is considered to be the safest and the most effective exercise.
