Vibration machines – a fairly new addition to the scene though the history goes back to the Soviet Union in the 1970’s and the Russian space program. Cosmonauts were unable to spend longer than 120 days or so in space without suffering bone degeneration & muscle atrophy (decrease in size), in researching why, scientists in Russia discovered vibration exercise technology. This proved most effective (their cosmonauts staying in space for 420 days!), but remained hidden to the west until after the fall of the Iron curtain.

These days it has quite a hollywood following with to reveal more, press here…
