Whole Body Vibration
Ten minute exerciser, all you have to do is find ten spare minutes a few times a week to reach optimal results.
The K-1 Platinum Whole Body Vibration Exercise machine as seen on CBS news in Phoenix, Your Life A-Z (Channel 3), and Sonoran Living (ABC-15) is a commercial rated unit available to the public at an outstanding price.
Although we are becoming more and more concerned with health and fitness, it seems that finding the time to do anything about it is harder to come by. With so much home fitness equipment to pick from, how do you choose the right machine?
Don't waste any more time driving to the gym or health club or waiting for your turn to use the equipment. With this compact unit, all you have to do is find ten spare minutes a few times a week to reach optimal results. The K-1 Platinum was designed to provide all of the benefits of exercise without any of the constraints. Conventional exercise can cause stress to joints, ligaments, and tendons, and risk of injury. There are measurable results from just a few minutes per session, with little or no exertion required. Many groups of muscles can be addressed with just minimal adjustment in posture and body positioning.
Whole Body Vibration is a fascinating new technology, and is being used by celebrities and athletes the world over. From hard bodies like Madonna and Gwen Stefani, to champion Lance Armstrong, vibration exercise is the choice among the fittest today. Many professional Sports teams now use Whole Body Vibration in their training.
Whole Body Vibration and the K-1 Platinum demonstrates a new revolution in rehabilitation and physical therapy by mechanically stimulating your muscles at a specific frequency. The vibrations are generated on a standing platform that are transferred to the user's body. The muscles automatically react to the vibration by contracting in a reflex. This contraction stimulates blood circulation and stretches both tendons and ligaments.
Origin of the Technology:
The development of vibration training came from a desire to improve bone density and muscle integrity in cosmonauts. The technology was originally developed to counteract the lack of gravity in space by the Soviet Union. After decades of research, this innovative machine has received endorsement by many professional athletes and is ensured to produce effective results for your physical therapy needs.

Very Important Information about Whole Body Vibration:
There are two types of technology available: The difference is substantial between the “piston” vibration equipment and the Triangle Oscillation System (T.O.S.). Our physicians have found that while the T.O.S. technology used in Whole Body Vibration (WBV) has surprising and astonishing results for health, exercise and body toning, there are questions raised about the advisability of using equipment based on “piston” style technology. Vibration and “G” force may have an undesirable a long term impact. Anyone who has used a jack hammer, driven a truck or other heavy operating machinery with the "up and down" piston movement and vibration knows the back problems that can develop and various physical stresses to other areas precipitating repetitive stress injury syndromes (carpal tunnel).
The Triangle Oscillation System (T.O.S.) vibrates at the correct megahertz from a medical and body toning standpoint, using a lift mechanism along with vibration. The T.O.S. system used by the Noblerex K-1 Platinum generates systematic involuntary muscle contraction with less G force than the “piston” systems. This stimulates receptors in the Achilles tendon called golgi bodies that stimulate nerve receptors which track up to the cerebellum (the part of the brain that is responsible for balance). This pleasant rocking and rolling action causes the brain to tell the muscles of your body to actively contract to maintain its equilibrium, thus creating a therapeutic and muscle toning workout.
Important Recent History About T.O.S.:
The physicians in our medical facility became interested last year in the reports we had received about Whole Body Vibration and the scientific papers being published on WBV http://www.aestheticmd.com/k1studies.shtml. We were interested to learn if WBV lived up to its “hype” and to evaluate the potential for use in treatments such as physician supervised diet, cellulite, etc.
The WBV equipment being offered in Canada and the US at that time were being sold for as much as $9500.00 and $15,000.00. This would exclude the individuals who might most benefit from WBV. The next and most important thing we wanted to consider was the safety and effectiveness of WBV. Was it a scam or did it really work as reported? What was the mechanism used and how did it achieve desired results for not only muscle and body toning, but exercise?
In the last ten months, we have purchased eight different machines for evaluation. What we have learned is that for best results both in body toning and strength the T.O.S. system appears to achieve the same or better results than the “piston” equipment (which can cost from $400.00 to $10,000.00). We have found one other T.O.S., but we are concerned about its durability and are studying it to see if it is worth using from a quality of construction standpoint.
We have tested and tried most of the equipment available. Some of the cheaper equipment seems to only vibrate up to the knees (using a piston vibration) and would not be recommended medically or even from a body strengthening standpoint. One has such a poor motor that it does nothing. While expensive, some of the popular machines are not recommended for the reasons cited above and use the piston style technology.
With the K-1 Platinum, we have had many patients report no more back problems after years of medical and chiropractic treatments (all have reported strengthening and toning). There is a television segment where a paraplegic patient talks about the strengthening of his upper torso. Fitness buffs have claimed that the K-1 Platinum has toned their body better than they have ever been able to achieve at the Health Clubs.
The results of use in conjunction with physician supervised weight loss far exceeded expectations and there are TV segments already on our web site and more to add from patients who have experienced the benefits of using the K-1 Platinum first hand.
