How Full Body Vibration Works

As the machine vibrates, it transfers the energy and motion to your body, which causes the muscles to contract and relax dozens of times per second. This is equivalent to exerting your muscles in activity. This action has shown to be especially beneficial for sedentary or senior individuals. It has also proven to help improve bone density as well.
