How Whole Body Vibration Works
Our body reacts to this natural stimulus with an involuntary reflex muscle contraction. Depending on the speed, muscles will react up to 32 times per second (approximately 16 contractions and 16 relaxations), and as the acceleration forces increase, your body will feel as though it “weighs” more. This clever technology means you can work against a far greater influence or “load” of gravity in every movement you perform.
Oscillating/ Pivotal Vibration Technology Used by T-Zone Health
Oscillating vibration is the most natural vibrating movement and has the widest range of benefits. People find this type of vibration technology most comfortable and it makes sense that muscles are activated alternately as they would be in walking.
This is by far the most popular type of vibration machine technology with many scientific studies to support it. Widely used by chiropractors, physiotherapists, trainers and doctors across the world, this type of vibration technology is suitable for all ages and health levels.
Linear/Tri-planar Vibration Technology Not Used by T-Zone Health
Very high frequency vertical micro-vibrations are created by this technology. This style of technology can be uncomfortable for some users as it does not emulate a natural movement like walking.
These types of technology are not recommended for those that are not in top shape and can be very uncomfortable for older users. There are also questions about frequencies that may be too high and aggressive for the body.
How are T-Zone Vibration machines also cardio machines?
Because of the Magic Mat – a special innovation only available with T-Zone. Magic Mats instantly transform your vibration machine to an all-in-one cardio, interval training, warm up, cool down, massage, flexibility, and strength machine, increasing your vibration machine’s comfort and uses while still remaining low impact.
The magic mat is made of a special proprietary polymer that cradles and then springs back on impact, creating a ‘reverse-load movement’. The result is your muscles have something to work against, but it also means your workout is softer and more comfortable whether you are doing cardio like running on the spot or strength training like a plank position.
All new T-Zone machines come automatically with 2 mat options included.
