As written by the Australian Newspaper.

Scientists have given the big tick to effort-free exercise, after finding that vibrating machines offer the same physical benefits as power walking.

US researchers have found that 20 minutes of “whole-body vibration” works as effectively as 45 minutes on a treadmill in ­restoring muscle and bone mass to obese mice.

The scientists say that while the results need to be replicated in humans, they suggest vibrating machines — used in some fitness centres and home gyms — can mimic the effects of regular exercise on the metabolism of people with lifestyle diseases.

“Our study is the first to show that whole-body vibration may be just as effective as exercise at combating some of the negative consequences of obesity and diabetes,” said lead researcher Meghan McGee-Lawrence of ­Augusta University in Georgia.

Whole-body vibration involves sitting, standing or lying on a machine with a vibrating platform. The theory is the vibrations force the muscles to contract and relax dozens of times a second.

Advocates tout it as a fitness tonic, a detox and balance treatment and an antidote to back pain and neurological disorders. NASA has researched it as a means of reducing muscle and bone atrophy in astronauts facing long missions in zero gravity.

However, while some research suggests it can increase strength — particularly in the leg muscles — comprehensive evidence of the benefits have been lacking. A Harvard University study found it did not reduce bone loss in older women, while sceptics warn the rapidly vibrating machines could trigger joint pain or brain damage.

The new study, published this morning in the journal Endocrinology, trialled the technique on mice genetically engineered to become morbidly obese. Twelve weeks of daily whole-body vibration achieved similar results as treadmill sessions in reducing weight and boosting muscle mass, sensitivity and bone formation.

Dr McGee-Lawrence said the results were encouraging, ­although researchers would need to “optimise” settings such as the frequency and amplitude of the vibrations “to find the best protocol for improving human health”.

“We wouldn’t expect that every type of vibration would be effective,” she said. “But animal studies like ours suggest it should be looked into further.” She said there was also some evidence that whole-body vibration benefited cardiovascular health.

Rachel Simpson, a trainer at Virgin Active fitness centre in Sydney’s Pitt St Mall, uses the machines for stretching. “It really shakes up the muscles and gets the fibres working together,” she said. “You can lengthen them out a lot more than you would in a normal stretch.”

Colleague Jeff Zheng said some clients simply stood or sat on the machines, but he encouraged them to add stretches or light weight work. “I wouldn’t recommend it if you have joint issues, because it is an unstable surface, but it’s great for toning up and getting back into fitness.”

Brisbane’s Trish Lange has used the machines at the gym, but prefers running. “You can get into your own head space, clear your mind a little bit.”

Ms Lange said vibrating machines had “some merit”, ­although she was sceptical of low-priced ones advertised on TV. “If I could stand for 20 minutes on a vibration machine and get toned and slim, I would do it, but I don’t know that it would work.’’

A US study has found sitting or standing on a vibration machine for just 20 minutes mimics the muscle and bone health benefits of a 45 minute walk, well at least for mice.

The mouse study is published in the Endocrine Society’s journal Endocrinology. “Our study is the first to show that whole-body vibration may be just as effective as exercise at combating some of the negative consequences of obesity and diabetes,” said the study’s senior author, Meghan McGee-Lawrence of Augusta University.

While WBV did not fully address the defects in bone mass of the obese mice, it did increase global bone formation.

Ms McGee-Lawrence says this suggests longer-term WBV treatments could hold “promise” for preventing bone loss.

WBV consists of a person sitting, standing or lying on a machine with a vibrating platform. When the machine vibrates, it transmits energy to the body, and muscles contract and relax multiple times during each second. Researchers at Augusta University.examined the efficacy of WBV in two groups of five-week-old male mice.

One group consisted of normal mice, while the other group was genetically unresponsive to the hormone leptin, which promotes feelings of fullness after eating.

Mice from each group were assigned to sedentary, WBV or treadmill exercise for 12 weeks.

The genetically obese and diabetic mice showed similar metabolic benefits from both WBV and exercising on the treadmill.

Obese mice gained less weight after exercise or WBV than obese mice in the sedentary group, although they remained heavier than normal mice. Exercise and WBV also enhanced muscle mass and sensitivity in the genetically obese mice.

The findings suggest that WBV may be a useful supplemental therapy to combat metabolic dysfunction in individuals with morbid obesity, said the authors. “These results are encouraging,” McGee-Lawrence said.

“However, because our study was conducted in mice, this idea needs to be rigorously tested in humans to see if the results would be applicable to people,” she added.

Good vibrations: A bit of shaking can burn fat, combat diabetes

It sounds like a crazy way to improve your health—spend some time on a platform that vibrates at about the same frequency as the lowest string on a double bass. But recent research indicates that the procedure, known as whole-body vibration, may be helpful in illnesses from cerebral palsy to chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. Now, a new study of obese mice reveals that whole-body vibration provides similar metabolic benefits as walking on a treadmill, suggesting it may be useful for treating obesity and type II diabetes.

“I think it’s very promising,” says exercise physiologist Lee Brown of the California State University in Fullerton, who wasn’t connected to the study. Although the effects are small, he says, researchers should follow-up to determine whether they can duplicate them in humans.

Plenty of gyms feature whole-body vibration machines, and many athletes swear the activity improves their performance. The jiggling does seem to spur muscles to work harder, possibly triggering some of the same effects as exercise. But researchers still don’t know how the two compare, especially when it comes to people who are ill. So biomedical engineer Meghan McGee-Lawrence of the Medical College of Georgia in Augusta and colleagues decided to perform a head-to-head comparison of exercise and whole-body vibration.

The researchers tested mutant mice resistant to the appetite-controlling hormone leptin, resulting in obesity and diabetes. McGee-Lawrence and colleagues divided their animals into three groups. One group lived in cages on a platform that shook gently for 20 minutes each day, subjecting the animals to whole-body vibration. The second group scurried on a treadmill for 45 minutes per day, whereas animals in the control group could laze about to their hearts’ content.

After 12 weeks, the researchers found that exercise and whole-body vibration provided comparable health benefits. All three groups of mice gained weight during the study, but those in the exercising and shaken groups put on slightly less than the indolent rodents. They also had less fat and thicker leg muscles.

What’s more, mice in the two “active” groups showed signs of a healthier metabolism. People who are obese often have abnormally high levels of but are resistant to its effects. Whole-body vibration and exercise reduced levels by similar amounts in the mice and increased their responsiveness to the hormone, the scientists report online today in Endocrinology. And the team detected another positive effect. In patients who are obese or have type II diabetes, fat often accumulates in the liver, sometimes leading to organ malfunction and even death. But the mice that worked out on the treadmill or lived in the vibrating cages harbored about one-third as much fat in the liver as did the control rodents.

One area in which the shaking didn’t seem to help was skeletal health. Putting the skeleton under stress typically stimulates bones to reinforce themselves. But whole-body vibration didn’t strengthen the animals’ bones or increase their bone density. “Overall, the mice had poor skeletal health, and the interventions we tried did not reverse that,” says McGee-Lawrence. She notes, however, that the researchers did detect increased levels of osteocalcin, a hormone that indicates bone formation. That could mean that a longer study might uncover skeletal benefits that hadn’t appeared after only 12 weeks, she says.

But couch potatoes might not want to launch into a La-Z-Boy workout routine just yet. Whole-body vibration doesn’t provide the cardiovascular or respiratory benefits of physical activity, Brown notes, and “it’s not going to replace exercise.” McGee-Lawrence agrees, but adds that it could be an option for the many people who can’t work out because of time limitations or poor health. “The fact that whole-body vibration might be an alternative is pretty exciting,” McGee-Lawrence says. The next step, she says, is adapting the shaking regimen for human patients.

Whole-body Vibration May Improve Diabetes Control, Study Finds

Researchers have found that a less strenuous form of exercise known as whole-body vibration may work just as well as regular exercise in helping to control diabetes. WBV, as it's called, could also benefit people who find it difficult to exercise.

Scientists say WBV transmits energy through the body when someone is standing, sitting or lying on a gently vibrating device, causing muscles to contract and relax many times each second.

The effect may be to strengthen and increase muscle mass, improving blood sugar control along with other problems seen in diabetes. At least, that's what studies in mice suggest.

Bearing in mind that exercise is good for everyone, including people with diabetes, researchers at Augusta University in Augusta, Georgia, studied five-week-old male rodents, comparing the effects of whole-body vibration to that of running on a treadmill.



Vibrating platform

A cage containing both normal and specially bred obese, diabetic mice was placed on a gently vibrating platform for 20 minutes per day for 12 weeks.

Another group of rodents — both diabetic and healthy mice — was trained to run on a treadmill for 45 minutes a day for the same period of time.

A third group of diabetic and healthy mice remained sedentary and were used for comparison.

Investigators saw similar health benefits in the diabetic mice that ran on the treadmill and those exposed to whole-body vibration.

Meghan McGee-Lawrence, an assistant professor in the Department of Cellular Biology and Anatomy at the Medical College of Georgia, said the results of the study showed that "vibration may be just as effective as exercise at combating some of the negative consequences of obesity and diabetes."



Biomarker improvements

McGee-Lawrence said mice subjected to whole-body vibration and those that ran on the treadmill were both able to decrease fat in the liver, improve sensitivity and increase muscle fiber.

While there was improvement in the biomarkers of diabetic WBV mice and treadmill mice, they never became as healthy as the normal animals.

During the study, the mice were weighed weekly. Researchers found that the diabetic mice subjected to vibration and the treadmill gained less weight after the study was over than the sedentary rodents.

There was also evidence that whole-body vibration might improve the bone strength of diabetics.

The study was published in the journal Endocrinology.

McGee-Lawrence said researchers are now trying to determine the mechanisms that underlie improved diabetes control in both exercise and whole-body vibration mice.



More study urged

There are vibrating chairs and beds available on the market, but McGee-Lawrence cautioned people against starting a routine of whole-body vibration and thinking they are controlling their diabetes.

"We know that some whole-body vibration ... seems to be good for the body, but too much can be a bad thing," she said. "And in terms of finding ways to apply that [to humans] ... I think we need some more studies to guide us on that so that when folks start doing this, we get the best beneficial effects we can without running the risk of having any potential side effects."

One potential harm of too much vibration, often seen heavy-machine operators, is tissue inflammation.

If researchers are able to repeat the results in humans, McGee-Lawrence said, whole-body vibration could be a useful add-on to the treatment of diabetes.

    Im Hannah and food makes me happy. My favourite way to spend the day is in the kitchen baking. I grew up with a father who loved to cook anything and everything, and a mother who made and decorated amazing cakes and gingerbread houses so my interest in baking was encouraged from an early age. I was given free run of the kitchen to make what I liked…so of course everything was dyed bright colours, filled with marshmallows and covered in sprinkles and glitter…I like to think that my baking style has gotten a little more sophisticated since then…

    To make thai spiced cashew butter I used my new Froothie Optimum 9400 power blender which made extremely light work of the task. What usually takes 10-15 minutes in a regular food processor took merely a couple of minutes in the Froothie. I have had the Optimum 9400 for quite a while now but it has taken me some time to get round to writing a review of it; that does mean that I have had a good chance to put it through it’s paces first however! It takes literally 30 seconds or less to grind nuts or oats down to a fine flour (if you want them chopped rather than blended to dust simply use the pulse function instead), and only a little longer to turn that flour into creamy nut butter. You can even use it to make soups and custards right in the blender – with prolonged blending (4-6 minutes) it heats the ingredients so there is no need to pre-cook! ....Click here.

Simply leave the blender running for several minutes; the speed of the powerful blades generates enough heat to cook the custard. Believe me, after 7 minutes, our custard was steaming hot! And because we had confidence in the power of the blades, we dropped the solid pieces of white chocolate straight into the hot custard and blended again. The Optimum 9400 blades broke the chocolate down quickly and the heat melted and combined it thoroughly into the custard base."Read More

    "My second secret bug-fighting weapon has been my Froothie Optimum 9400 – a power blender that I’ve been trying out recently to make blended soups, smoothies and homemade raw dips and nut butters……..I’ve also found that since the Froothie Optimum 9400 can handle raw ingredients, including vegetables, nuts, seeds and all kinds of fruit, you are literally only ever a few minutes away from a cup of something tasty and nutritious in the form of a soup or smoothie. My little girl has discovered a love of soy milk (which she calls soil milk!) so I’ve also been making lots of milkshakes and smoothies with frozen bananas and a pinch of cinnamon or cocoa……
    So, I’m very happy with my Optimum 9400 and there are still many more recipes to try''. "Read More

    "The Optimum 9400 blender is sensational, I can do so much with it, which is awesome. I was used to another super powerful blender and I could compare both quite well. Let’s start with my review: 
    The Optimum 9400 has six blades instead of the regular 4 that you can find in most super powerful blenders and that makes everything you blende smoother and creamier.
    You can do toppings and filing for cakes, nut butter, nut milk, green juices, smoothies, cheesecake and even bread. I’ve once done a soup in less than 10 minutes and it was super hot. I know how crazy is that.
    The powerful motor has 3 high speeds which allows you to do ice cream and soups.
    The jug is Heat-Resistant BPA free with 2l capacity.
    The blender also has a Built-in sensor to detect over-usage; prolonging life of blender'' Read More

    "The Froothie with the optimum 9400 has seriously revolutionised some of my recipes, particularly my nut based dishes that benefit from having a silky smooth texture. I like to say my cashew creams and cheeses are now 'next level' smooth thanks to its unmatchable power. It even took centre stage at my Husband's Mexican themed birthday party thanks to some particularly awesome frozen margaritas - people still talk about them today."

Well, I can definitely say that owning my Froothie has been amazing. A whole new world of healthy eating has been opened up to me''   "Read More

I have been using a professional plate in the gym for the past three years and found it has made me feel so much fitter. I am amazed that the vibrofit one feels exactly the same for a fraction of the price. It is light enough for me to take away in my Motorhome on holiday so I do not miss out on my daily wobble.

Used by wife and myself. Good vibration in all programs which have different intensity levels and pulse settings ie intensity rpm rises and falls with each program. Still using it but can feel you have been on the plate after you finish your 10 minute exercise. Robust and portable.The elastic pulls attach easily and give good resistance. I would recommend this product and was £*** cheaper than most advertised. Still trying all programs and not seen any weight loss yet but hopeful!!!!

HEALTH BENEFITS PROVEN BY RESEARCHERS



Results showed that both frequencies produced significant improvements in skin blood flow within the first 4 minutes of vibration, peak values being obtained by the fifth minute.

Findings suggested that vibration exercises are beneficial for diabetes sufferers not only because they improve the circulation of blood but also because they help in managing body weight and reducing the risk of obesity.

Findings suggested this increased muscle activity resulted in an improved bone density in the lumbar spine between 0.5 % to 0.7 % and the hip between 0.8 % to 0.9 % in postmenopausal women.

  • Train Like A Professional Athlete

    Professional athletes including Chicago Bulls, Los Angeles Lakers, Chicago Bears and Pittsburgh Steelers use vibration plates to improve their workout performance, training and muscle recovery. Scientific research has shown that vibration plates provide a number of health benefits and enhance training results, making it the perfect exercise plate to incorporate into professional athlete training.

    By incorporating vibration exercises into their training, athletes have been shown to experience improved flexibility, increased muscle performance and reduced muscle fatigue. This means you can train for a short amount of time to yield better results without increasing the risk of burn out or injury. A safe and effective way to exercise, vibration plates increase blood flow to the skin, making it the perfect warm up or cool down exercise that helps loosen tight joints and alleviate sore muscles.

    Whether you are a professional athlete or not, the urban lifestyle subjects you to common ailments, such as back pain from constantly sitting in a poor posture and tightness or soreness in the shoulder and hips. Using the VibroFit for a few minutes a day can help relieve these problems and further improve your body shape and tone by encouraging weight loss and reducing the appearance of cellulite through improving fluid retention over consistent prolonged use.

To prepare for an intensive workout, use the VibroFit to activate the muscles stabilising your joints, following with incorporating squats on the VibroFit to increase the results of muscle-building in common problem areas, thereby increasing your body’s fat-burning rate even when sedentary.

    You do not have to be a pro to reap the amazing benefits of the VibroFit. It is truly the ultimate one-size-fits-all exercise plate.
