Independent scientific studies have shown that vibration therapy really works and that up to 80% of the time can be saved with from 20 to 30% better results in comparison with traditional training sessions.
Extensive research at the University of Bayreuth (Germany), for example, indicated that Whole Body Vibration not only accomplished results that were just as good or better than traditional training (depending on the exercise), but vibration training was also subjectively experienced as more pleasant. Also in Russia many studies were done in the past with regard to the advantages of vibration training. It was especially Professor Carmelo Bosco (in Italy) who, with his scientific research, accomplished a major breakthrough in vibration training.
In the meantime, all kinds of effects and applications of vibration training have been abundantly described in countless publications in international literature dealing with fundamental scientific research. A few recent and widely discussed publications are:
