Whole Body Vibration Platform
Whole-body vibration (WBV) is a therapeutic method that exposes the entire body to mechanical oscillations while the person stands or sits on a vibrating platform. It was first used by the Soviet Union for rehabilitation of the muscle weakness and bone density loss that occurred from traveling in outer space.
It is now commonly used in the physical medicine/neurorehabilitation fields as a prevention and rehabilitation tool. WBV is also used in fitness and rehabilitation to improve muscle function (strength, power, and endurance), muscle soreness, joint stability and to reduce the risk of falling.

The Vitalizer Chi Machine
The Chi Machine was invented in the late 1980s by Japanese engineer, Keiichi Ohashi. It was designed for passive aerobic exercise, which involves applying constant movement and pressure to parts of the body through an outside force. During this form of low impact exercise, oxygen is metabolized to produce energy which is dispersed to all parts of the body.
For a treatment, you lie down on your back with the ankles resting in the cradle of the machine. The motion is designed to sway your legs back and forth creating a fish-like motion. The fish like movement improves blood flow and lymphatic function for the health and vitality of the whole body.
