What is Controlled Whole Body Vibration?
Controlled Whole Body Vibration is a new type of fitness training and therapy that has a strong and direct have an effect on on health, wellness and longevity. Mechanical vibrations used at the correct frequency and amplitude cause muscular contractions, better known as involuntary neuromuscular stretch reflex. Muscles are activated and trained very easily in a short period of time. Twelve exercises of one minute each can be equivalent to an hour work out at the gym. Vibration training with DKN X Series therefore has the effect of strengthening the muscles and increasing endurance, balance, explosiveness and flexibility.
What should you look for when purchasing cWBV equipment?
DKN X Series models only vibrate vertically and consistently across the whole platform. The human body is designed to absorb forces in a vertical direction, walking, jumping or running for instance. Shearing or horizontal forces aren’t absorbed and incessantly result in injury to muscles, ligaments and joint capsules. Most sporting, work and motor vehicles related injuries are due to large horizontal forces on an area of the body that breaks the threshold of the structure that is being stressed (bone, ligament, tendon). There are dozens of WBV units that use tilting or rotational vibrating platforms instead of a true vertical vibration. Tilting platforms do not have a uniform amount of displacement across the platform. The platform vibrates on around a horizontal axis; therefore there is higher amplitude of vibration as you move away from the center of the platform. Rotational vibration is a combination of vertical and horizontal forces that combine to give a vibration effect. What are the long-term effects of non-vertical vibration? Non-vertical vibration can create harmful load or stress to joints, it can be harmful for the spine and the lower back, you’ll be able to’t do upper body exercise or sit on an oscillating machine… and so on! It is not worth exposing your body to these forces when there are WBV units such as DKN those guarantees the vertical vibration of their units.

Get stronger, increase your bone density, and boost your flexibility and balance with the DKN Technology Xg-10 whole body vibration machine. Low-speed, low-magnitude vibrating platforms are changing the way many people exercise and manage their fitness, wellness, and longevity. By moving, exercising, or even standing on a vibrating platform, you’ll be able to not only improve your overall fitness, but also enjoy the added benefits of better skin, better posture, and a better look. The machine works by producing gentle vibrations that move into and throughout your entire body. This mechanical stimulus produces a stretch reflect that, depending on the selected frequency, vigorously contracts your muscles at 20 to 50 times per second. With each repeat of the process, the body adjusts slightly more to the level of effort, resulting in an increase in physical performance. The phenomenon, called super-compensation, reinforces the natural healing rejuvenative process that’s all the time occurring inside our bodies, helping you achieve greater results in much less time. A time commitment of 15 minutes a day, three times per week can strengthen and tone the body or boost bone density whilst causing minimal stress on the joints.
The Xg-10 was specifically designed to make professional-level training more accessible and affordable whether in a home or fitness club. The Xg-10 is a space-saver, with a compact footprint that takes up less floor room than most club models. The machine’s most high-profile feature is its integrated personal coach, which guides the user through four different programs: Total Body, Upper Body, Lower Body, and Abdominals. During each program, the coach shows you the different positions and the muscle groups they target, and the sets the frequency and time for the workout. Advanced users can also bypass the automatic programs and set up a personal training profile via the manual setup option. Best of all for dedicated users, the Xg-10 is made of high-grade steel reinforced with carbon fiber, helping the frame control the high-performance acceleration. Other features include a well-balanced platform with a low entry step, a frequency range of 20 to 50 Hz, and a touch-screen console. The Xg-10 comes with two upper-body straps, a thick high-density mat, an interactive training DVD, a personal training guide, and an exercise poster.
About Whole Body Vibration
Whole body vibration (WBV) re-creates the muscle stretch reflect through the following process: The machine stimulates a tendon, causing a muscle stretch reflect. The receptors in the muscles and joints note this shift in length, and then pass the information on to the spinal cord. The brain then responds to this sensory stimulus (via the spinal column) by directly contracting the stretched muscle, helping work the muscle and improve overall performance.
The Xg-10’s intuitive console offers an integrated personal coach to lead your workouts.
Many studies have demonstrated that a 10-minute exercise session on a WBV machine is equivalent to and even better than an hour workout on conventional fitness equipment. The have an effect on of WBV is significant in the medical field, as positive results have been observed in Parkinson’s disease patients and patients suffering from other degenerative diseases. Studies have also shown that WBV substantially slows down the progression of osteoporosis in women and elderly people whilst also helping them rebuild bone density. Other observed benefits include a boost in flexibility and range of motion, reduced lower back pain, and accelerated weight loss.
