The first applications of vibration for the improvement of human performance were developed in ancient Greece. As a therapy, the whole body vibration (sometimes abbreviated as WBV) was explored by Russian Scientists who tested vibration on astronauts in an effort to decrease the loss of muscle and bone mass in space.

Recently whole body vibration platforms have been popularized and in home gyms as one of the hottest new trends in exercise.
Because more muscle fibers (also known as motor units) are activated under the influence of vibration than in normal, conscious muscle contractions the muscles are incited more efficiently. The immediate effect of WBV is therefore that the muscles can be used quickly and efficiently, rendering them capable of producing more force. However, this process will only be effective if the stimulus is not too intense and does not last too long, because otherwise performance will diminish due to fatigue.

Another immediate effect of WBV is an improvement in circulation. The rapid contraction and relaxation of the muscles at 20 to 50 times per second basically works as a pump on the blood vessels and lymphatic vessels, increasing the speed of the blood flow through the body. Patients often experience this as a tingling, prickling, warm sensation in the skin, which is the occurrence of vasodilatation (widening of the blood vessels) as a result of vibration.

Long term effects of WBV occur after the body systems experience fatigue or some sort of light stress repeatedly and regularly. As in other types of training, when the body is overloaded, the principle of super compensation will occur, which leads to an increase in performance; much like body building.

Another important difference between conventional training methods and WBV is that there is only a minimum of loading. No additional weights are necessary, which ensures that there is very little loading to the passive structures such as bones, ligaments and joints. That is why WBV is extremely suited to people that are difficult to train due to old age, disease, disorders, weight or injury. On the other hand, it is also very suitable for professional athletes who want to stimulate and strengthen their muscles without overloading joints and the rest of the physical system.

Whole body vibration training is an excellent adjunct to the Laser-Like Lipo treatments and can help accelerate the results of any treatment.
