VForce Vibration Therapy Device The vibration therapy is a new treatment that has proven effective in: • Muscle strengthening • Enhancing range-of-motion • Increasing flexibility • Relieving pain• Relaxing muscle spasms• Improving balance and proprioception Benefits of Vibration: research shows that vibration therapy is indicated for a broad range of therapeutic applications:• Balance and Fall Prevention• Bone and Joint Rehab • Neuromuscular Re-Education • Knee Rehab• General Health and Wellness• Low Back Pain • Flexibility and Range of Motion As a therapy, whole-body vibration (WBV) was explored by Russian scientist, Vladimir Nazarov who tested vibration on astronauts in an effort to decrease the loss of muscle and bone mass in space. Astronauts in space lose their muscular strength very quickly and the decrease of bone density increases the risk of bone fractures. Before their departure, astronauts were subjected to WBV training sessions so that the density of their bones would increase and their muscular strength would riseVibration Therapy is becoming increasingly popular. Initially, vibration training was mainly used in the fitness industry, but Vibration Therapy is expanding quickly into all areas of physical medicine and rehabilitation. Science Behind Vibration Whole body vibration is a neuromuscular training method which uses a vibration stimulus to incite an involuntary response in muscles. Mechanoreceptors (muscle spindles and Golgi Tendon Organs – GTO) are the sensory organs of the muscle which are sensitive to mechanical stimulation. Muscle spindles send information to the brain regarding the tension of the muscle, causing the muscle to contract when excited. Conversely, when the GTO (located where the tendon and muscle meet) is excited, it causes the muscle to relax. When stimulated by vibration, the muscles spindles, tendons and GTO send impulses to the brain and cause the muscles to contract and relax at the rate of vibration, a phenomenon called Tonic Vibration Reflex (TVR). This response recruits nearly 100% of the muscle fibers in contraction and enhances neuromuscular efficiency. Skeletal muscles contract and release at the same frequency of the vibration, for example if standing in a squat position on the vibration platform set at 30 Hz, muscles will contract and release 900 times in a 30-second session.- impossible to simulate during a normal exercise regime. Vibration Parameters To achieve optimal results with Vibration Therapy, two variables must be considered. 1. Amplitude – While all vibration devices produce vibration in three different directions – front and back (x), sideways (y), and up and down (z), the most safe and effective platforms produce sufficient vertical vibration while limiting vibration in the horizontal plane. Research has shown that significant vertical amplitude (2-6 mm) is required to generate adequate “loading” on both the muscular and skeletal systems. Conversely, vibration in the horizontal plane may cause significant side effects after prolonged use. 2. Frequency - Frequency (Hz) is equally important. Research shows that the body responds positively to vibration in the 25-50 Hz range. The acceleration forces resulting from vibration cause the muscles to contract. Due to this involuntary contraction of the muscles, many more muscle fibers are recruited than in a voluntary movement (Issurin & Tenenbaum 1999). This is confirmed by heightened EMG activity (Bosco et al. 1999, Delecluse et al. 2003). This rapid contraction and relaxation of muscles at 25 to 50 times per second works as a pump on both the circulatory and lymphatic systems, increasing the speed of blood flow and lymphatic drainage throughout the body (Kerschan-Schindl et al. 2001; Lohman et al. 2007). Why Dual Motors? Research has shown that significant vertical amplitude (2-6 mm) is required to generate adequate “loading” of both the muscular and skeletal systems. Only synchronized dual motors, as featured in Vforce, are capable of generating adequate vertical amplitude while limiting the ineffective horizontal vibrations generated by single-motor units.

Patient with partially or entirely limited standing abilities is held securely at hips and legs while balance system allows to move hips to all sides, to train stability and balance in the upper body. With the BALANCE-Trainer, the therapist allows safe dynamic standing and transfers the patient’s weight to the unit. This way, he/she can concentrate on the therapeutical work. Furthermore, the patient’s work in the unit helps to reduce the fear of falling. The balance resistance can be adjusted to fit the very individual needs of the patient in seven steps. The BALANCE-Trainer is indicated for: paraplegia, tetraplegia, multiple sclerosis, muscular diseases, Parkinson’s disease, stroke.
The THERA-Trainer Verto is a rigid, static standing frame for those who are unable to stand on their own and for whom balance initiation is not possible. It is ideally suited for training objectives such as verticalization, tone regulation and activation of the circulation and metabolism.The THERA-Trainer Verto has an uncompromising focus on quality and functionality. The highly wear-resistant tread surfaces offer flexible options for foot securing. Its four lockable leading pulleys make the THERA-Trainer Verto a mobile exerciser. The table is made of high-quality Multiplex laminated wood with a highly wear-resistant coat of lacquer. The table is supported by stainless steel pipes. Large format engraved height marking allows accurate height adjustment. Thanks to the gas spring, the table height can be adjusted individually on both sides. The heights of the knee supports and the handrails can be adjusted in a similar way. FEATURESBase unit THERA-Trainer Verto
