Has anyone tried WBV?

Info:

(see WBV user guide link)

Several papers look favorably on WBV but I was wondering if anyone had direct experience.

Seems there are two approachs: vibration and tilt/vibration (if I read the various references properly). Vibration is simple XYZ movement (small) of the exercise equipment/platform. Another is a specific stand one platform that I gather tilts (and maybe vibrates).

The tilt system looks more restrictive but may work a bit better due to specific design.

Hi Bob

I'm interested to know if you investigated WBV any further and if it helped? My family have been looking at investing in a machine.

I haven't invested in the machine so I don't have any further insight. Doesn't look like it would hurt to give it a try if you have the spare $$$ to spend. Not sure you could tell if it was working if you did start using it. Perhaps if you already have some balance issues you may see some improvement.

Hello everyone,

I know it's been such a long time since the thread was started but i would really like to know if any of you have further news about this issue.
Yesterday by chance i came across an advertisment about "Galilleo Fitness" in my local gym. It stated it would help in muscular dysthrophyes. I wonder if it it's worth investing in such a thing instead of making dad going to some other therapies
