what is whole body vibration
TurboSonic® is a sophisticated exercise and wellness machine that uses patented sonic vibration technology based on decades of Russian research and development. During the first extended periods of time Russian cosmonauts spent in space, it was observed they experienced bone and muscle tissue loss due to a lack of gravity. In an effort to stop or reverse these degenerative conditions, researchers were led to the whole body vibration (WBV) technology. Since that first research decades ago, it has been well documented that vibration technology does in fact repair the bone and muscle tissue loss experienced by the cosmonauts. Of course, this discovery inevitably led the way for the whole body vibration concept to be applied to the fields of athletics and fitness. The TurboSonic is the latest “state of the art” vibration technology machine designed for physical performance enhancement. It was designed and developed by TS Korea and collaborated with Qigong (Chi Kung) Masters in Korea who were instrumental in helping develop TurboSonic's 10 minute pre-programmed training sessions. TurboSonic is used widely throughout Korea and Japan especially by Qigong, Acupuncturist, Athletic Trainers and Senior Centers as well as by Olympic and top sport athletes and entertainers. Within the last year, its notoriety and popularity has spread into America.
Whole body vibration theory was originated from the concept of human body movement under earth gravity. The movement of individual organs of human body is always influenced by earth’s gravity. Earth gravity works in vertical directions. Therefore it is natural and more effective for the human body to exercise in a vertical direction. Running vertically causes all the body organs such as brain, chest, abdomen and muscles to contract and relax repeatedly. Up and down vertical exercise movements stimulate the growth plates, improve blood vessel circulation, activate lymph system and help eliminate cellulite. Vertical movements also cause the muscle fibers to contract and relax repeatedly enhancing muscle strength.
