Corporate Wellness

Corporate fitness and wellness is gaining ground for the numerous benefits to employee performance such as, reduced sick days and more productive work enviornment. Body Vibe vibration exercise machines are ideal for corporate fitness centers. In 10-20 minutes the employee can train all of his or her muscle groups, invigorate mental focus and alertness, while balancing posture and reducing ergonomic related injury.

Exercising on one of our units can yield a host of benefits including improved flexibility, reduced pain, increased blood circulation and renewed oxygen tissue levels.

The no sweat – no stain workout takes about 15 minutes per session and allows for lunch or coffee break workouts without the worry of needing a shower or a change of clothing.

Mood balancing hormones are immediately released like serotonin which counters mental fatigue while harmonizing emotional stress common in an enclosed work enviornment.

Considering its compact design and “bang for the buck” cost, the Body Vibe is the perfect corporate fitness equipment. Every employer should offer this form of training and exercise if they want to see their bottom line, employee job satisfaction, increase!

Scientific Evidence, Proven Results

Treatment of Chronic Lower Back Pain with Lumbar Extension and Whole-Body Vibration Exercise
J. Ritweger, K. Just, K. Kautzsch, P. Reeg, D. Felsenberg

Whole Body Vibration exercise seems to be helpful rather than harmful in nonspecific chronic lower back pain. As to the practical aspects and given that it yields about the same results as lumbar extension exercise, the spatial requirements favor the former. The LEX machine that we used requires an area of 12m2, whereas the VbX device could be placed on 3m2 with ease.”

Oxygen uptake during Whole Body Vibration exercise: comparison with squatting as a slow voluntary movement
Jorn Rittweger, Hans Schiessl, Dieter Felsenberg

“If assessed during steady-state conditions, VO2 permits an estimation of energy metabolism of the organism (Margaria 1968; McArdle et al. 1991; Stegemann 1991). If resting values are subtracted, exercise- related metabolic power can be estimated. Normalizing tot he body mass yields data that are comparable between individuals. Our data show that platform vibration with a frequency of 26 Hz increases VO2. This supports strongly the view that vibration eleicits muscular activoty and that we are therefore dealing with a type of exercise rather than with passive vibration.”

WHOLE BODY VIBRATION TECHNOLOGY

Vibration Training – Mechanisms and possible mechanisms relating to structural adaptations and acute effects
Adrie van Diemen

“Broadly speaking, vibration training has two effects: an acute effect and a structural effect. The structural effect is the most relevant. This structural effect can in turn be split up into two categories. The first is the more important for competitive athletes and has received the most attention from scientific researchers in recent years: the addition of vibration training to maximal weight training in order to produce a greater effect than maximal weight training alone. The second category is of more interest to the recreational athlete and patients in rehabilitation: vibration training carried out statically or with sub-maximal contractions like knee flexions. What makes this form so interesting is that the same effect can be achieved with a modest training effort as with a major effort like maximal weight training. In addition, it is not so very interesting whether this training effect is greater or smaller than what can be achieved with traditional weight training, because both forms are completely different where a number of characteristics are concerned. It is not the effect which is relevant, but whether the athlete is willing or able to carry out the training.”

Whole Body Vibration exercise leads to alterations in muscle blood volume
K. Kerschan-Schindl, S. Grampp, C. Henk, H. Resch, E. Preisinger, V. Fialka-Moser, M Imhof

“The crucial points concerning a positive or negative outcome in vibration studies on peripheral circulation and muscle strength seem to be the frequency and amplitude of vibration as well as the duration of exposure. The results of the study indicate that a short-term exposure to Whole Body Vibration of 26 Hz does not have the negative effects known from long-term exposure to high frequency.”
