Ruby, a user of the G17 Pro suffered from severe joint pain. Watch the review below to see how it has helped her immensely.
[Transcript] Hi baby. How have you got on with the vibration training? I am really really well. At 47 I’ve been using the vibration plate for maybe nine months now. Prior to this I was suffering with back pain and joint instability. I used this machine three times a week for about 30 minutes and there has been a significant improvement in my muscle tone and my overall fitness. This machine is brilliant. I no longer have back pain and I’ll be continuing to use this machine on a regular basis. It literally holds me together. [End of transcript]
Darren, is a regular user of the HyperVibe G-17 Pro whole body vibration machine. Watch his testimonial below to see how it has helped him with an intercostal problem. Intercostal retractions are a serious condition resulting from reduced air pressure on the inside of your chest.
[Transcript] Hi Darren and how did you come about the HyperVibe vibration? Right, well I’m suffering with an intercostal problem and Dave Moore here at physio fitness recommended that I use the vibration training as part of the rehabilitation process.
And how is it benefited you? Well not only has this sorted out the intercostal problem but I’ve traditionally suffered with stiffness in my shoulders and tight hamstrings which also gives me lower back issues and it’s really helped resolve all of those.
And would you recommend this to friends? Absolutely and already have done. The machine you can tailor the vibration to whatever your needs are from gentle to extreme. And the number of exercises and stretches you do you can really personalize the program to meet whatever your needs. [End of transcript]

Because of its power and reliability the Hypervibe G-17 Pro is often used in controlled studies to test the effects of whole body vibration machines. Click the accordions below to read about just two of the hundreds of studies or portions of the U.S. Patent description which highlight the remarkable way Hypervibe’s are engineered and built.
There are hundreds of controlled studies proving the benefits of whole body vibration training.
Just ONE example is the increasing of bone density in the hips. Enjoy below some short quotes from an important study.
"Results: No vibration‐related side effects were observed. Vibration training improved isometric and dynamic muscle strength (+15% and + 16%, respectively; p < 0.01) and also significantly increased BMD of the hip (+0.93%, p < 0.05). No changes in hip BMD were observed in women participating in resistance training or age‐matched controls (−0.60% and −0.62%, respectively; not significant). Serum markers of bone turnover did not change in any of the groups.
Conclusion: These findings suggest that WBV training may be a feasible and effective way to modify well‐recognized risk factors for falls and fractures in older women and support the need for further human studies.
AS THE WORLD POPULATION ages, osteoporosis and osteoporotic fracture occurrence are becoming an increasingly important public health problem. By any measure, proximal femoral fracture is the most devastating complication of osteoporosis. The mortality rate in patients with hip fracture is 12–20% higher than in persons of similar age and gender who have not suffered a fracture. Of those who survive the operative intervention for an osteoporotic hip fracture, less than one‐third are restored to their prefracture functional state. Most strategies to treat postmenopausal bone loss have been focusing on antiresorptive medication. More recently, the potential contribution of load‐bearing exercise to preserve bone density and prevent osteoporosis has received some attention. In this regard, a relatively vigorous aerobic and strength training regimen has been shown to be most effective. However, this approach has the inherent disadvantage of a lack of long‐term compliance and may even increase the risk of fracture. It is therefore imperative to continue the search for more attractive, low‐risk exercise programs, with the goal of improving the outcome.
In conclusion, in healthy postmenopausal women, a 24‐week whole body vibration program is feasible and able to modify muscle strength, balance, and hip bone density, which are well‐recognized risk factors for hip fracture."
Exercising on a whole body vibration machine like the Hypervibe G17 Pro will increase oxygen uptake as noted in the following study:
"In this study we investigated metabolic power during whole-body vibration exercise (VbX) compared to mild resistance exercise. Specific oxygen consumption (VO2) and subjectively perceived exertion (rating of perceived exertion, RPE; Borg scale) were assessed in 12 young healthy subjects (8 female and 4 male). The outcome parameters were assessed during the last minute of a 3-min exercise bout, which consisted of either (1) simple standing, (2) squatting in cycles of 6 s to 90 degrees knee flexion, and (3) squatting as before with an additional load of 40% of the subject's body weight (35% in females). Exercise types 1-3 were performed with (VbX+) and without (VbX-) platform vibration at a frequency of 26 Hz and an amplitude of 6 mm. Compared to the VbX- condition, the specific VO2 was increased with vibration by 4.5 ml x min(-1) x kg(-1). Likewise, squatting and the additional load were factors that further increased VO2. Corresponding changes were observed in RPE. There was a correlation between VbX- and VbX+ values for exercise types 1-3 (r = 0.90). The correlation coefficient between squat/no-squat values (r = 0.70 without and r = 0.71 with the additional load) was significantly lower than that for VbX-/VbX+. Variation in specific VO2 was significantly higher in the squatting paradigm than with vibration. It is concluded that the increased metabolic power observed in association with VbX is due to muscular activity. It is likely that this muscular activity is easier to control between individuals than is simple squatting."
Enjoy some important quotes from the patent issued to Hypervibe Pty Ltd which highlight how remarkable, unique and well-built the Hypervibe whole body vibration machines are.
"A pivotal vibration apparatus comprising a vibration platform, a displacement assembly having an eccentric shaft rotatable to provide a displacement force, a link connecting the displacement assembly to the vibration platform to transfer the displacement thereto and an adjustment mechanism to adjust the amplitude of the displacement force transmitted to the vibration platform in a continuous fashion.
BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
Whole body vibration, as the name suggests, refers to mechanical oscillations which are applied to the entire body as opposed to a localised application. Recently this principle has been used in the fitness and physical therapy fields in the form of vibration training.
In vibration training the user may stand or otherwise make contact with a vibrating platform and their musculo-skeletal system is exposed to high speed oscillations causing a range of muscles to contract and relax on a continuous basis thereby building and strengthening muscle. Vibration training also provides substantial therapeutic benefits in terms of increasing bone density, aiding mobility and improving tissue perfusion, to name but a few.
There are three factors to be considered in designing vibration training machines and these are the amplitude of the displacement of the platform, being the distance travelled between two points, the frequency of the oscillations, being the number of oscillations per second, and the G force, being the acceleration of the displacement felt by the user which ultimately determines the magnitude of the load applied to the muscles. These factors are inextricably linked and so, for example, if a vibration machine has a small amplitude of displacement of its vibration platform then a higher frequency of vibrations will be required to provide the same G force as is achieved by a machine with a platform having a greater amplitude of vibration.
There are currently two different types of vibration training machines, the lineal and pivotal forms. Lineal vibration machines have a vibration platform which simply moves vertically up and down between two points, much in the manner of an elevator. Some lineal machines allow displacement modulation whereby the user may have a choice of, typically, two settings. This may allow for a ‘low’ setting whereby the amplitude of displacement of the platform is, typically, 2 mm and a ‘high’ setting with a vibration amplitude of, typically, 4 mm.
Lineal vibration, because of its relatively small amplitude of vibration, typically operates at relatively high frequencies (25-50 Hz) to achieve a useful working G force. However, for use by elderly people the displacement can be kept low to produce a low G force thereby making the machine safer for this group. Lineal machines thus provide some advantages in terms of control over G force applied to the user. The main drawback associated with lineal machines is that the nature of the movement they produce means that the transmission of vibrational mechanical energy to the head is quite keenly felt by the user. This results in many users finding lineal machines too uncomfortable to use for extended periods of time, due to the onset of headaches, neck pain etc, and raises concerns about their safety.
The second type of vibration training machine is a pivotal machine in which a pivotal vibration platform oscillates around a central fulcrum, much in the manner of a see saw. Pivotal machines do not provide for displacement modulation per se in the manner of the lineal machine but a user can adjust the amplitude of displacement they are exposed to by moving their stance to be closer to or further away from the fulcrum. This is not entirely satisfactory because when performing certain exercises on the platform the contact points the user makes with the platform need to be a certain distance apart. For example, when performing a push up the user's hands would be roughly shoulder width apart and so placed at opposite ends of the platform and exposed to the maximum displacement amplitude which may be excessive. If a lower displacement amplitude is required the distance between the user's hands, and the exercise position, may need to be altered such that the exercise becomes less effective or even impossible for the user to complete. It is, therefore, more difficult for a user to control the G force they experience during pivotal training.
Since the displacement of a pivotal platform can be up to about 13 mm they tend to operate at lower frequencies than lineal machines to achieve a similar G force output. Further, with a displacement of up to 13 mm, it is difficult to produce an effective low G force pivotal machine for use by the elderly or infirm because of the large amplitude of vibration which cannot be completely offset by a low frequency and still maintain efficacy. Users do report that a pivotal machine has a more comfortable feel in terms of vibration transmission to the head and research has shown that the magnitude of vibration felt in the head region is dramatically lower than for lineal machines.
There is a need for a vibration training machine which can operate over a range of G force output and which avoids at least some of the disadvantages mentioned above.
The present invention provides substantial benefits to the user in terms of improved control over the G force output from the pivotal machine and enables pivotal vibration training machines to enjoy wider application than was previously possible.
It has been shown that the optimal vibrational frequency to activate a muscle's stretch reflex and cause contraction is around 30 Hz. Although not wishing to be bound by any particular theory it is believed that because the stretch reflex of a muscle takes approximately 35-50 millisec to complete the muscle can only absorb around 20-30 vibrations per second. Frequencies higher than about 30 Hz will thus be capable of being absorbed by bone tissue and can then provide the observed benefits of increasing bone density which is particularly important for the elderly. The present invention is capable of operating at frequencies of from about 5 to about 35 Hz.
Previously, pivotal vibration machines were not particularly well suited to this application because the combination of their inherently large displacement amplitude with a frequency above 30 Hz would result in an excessively large G force being experienced by the user and could even result in injury.
The present invention provides a solution to this problem since the amplitude of vibration can be reduced when higher frequencies are needed to thereby maintain the G force at a relatively low magnitude. The present invention will be used in conjunction with software which calculates the relationship between the vibrational amplitude and frequency to ensure that the G force is always within safe limits. For example, if a user increases the vibrational amplitude to a maximum value then, at a point before excessive G forces would be reached, the software will automatically lower the frequency of the vibrations to provide G force control.
The present invention allows user's to continue to enjoy the acknowledged benefits of pivotal vibration training but has removed the disadvantages relating to lack of control over vibration amplitude and, so, G force output."
