How a whole body vibration plateaids in effective muscle contractions

Aug 13th 2015 at 12:49 AM

Whole Body Vibration (WBV) machines help tone and exercise the body by augmenting muscle contractions. These attributes help in negating the effects of muscle atrophy and possibilities of bone loss. This equipment has numerous beneficial advantages over conventional training. It helps in improving physical function, vitality, and even basic body functions like walking. As well as enhancing your body’s muscular condition, these machines can significantly reduce bodily pain. All these attributes in combination provide a significant benefit to your overall health. Training with such devices also aids in maintaining bone mineral density in women related to calcium loss and deficiencies in combination with proper diet and other measures.

The whole body vibration plate is the working mechanism of the vibration process. Vibrations act as rapid mini muscular contractions during the training process. As there is no appreciable decrease in regards to force output, your body can undergo these contractions with minimal effort.

Contraction of muscles is caused by mechanical stimulations that the vibrating plate produces. A whole body vibration platform sends mild, consistent impulses which are channeled in the body through your feet to your body. These vibrations help in efficient activation of muscle fibers. Muscle movements, which are basically expansions and contractions of muscle tissues, are therefore automatic.

Other types of exercise don't deliver this whole body effect. They focus on related muscle groups, rather than the entire muscle structure of your body.

The other critical factor - Bones

These machines allow movement of joints and bones and do not cause any pain during the training regime. This is a low stress regime, suitable for people recovering from major trauma at the “physio” stage of recovery. The plate and platform also assist in diminishing neuromuscular adhesions.
