Vibration Training Promotes Normal Bone Formation Rate
Scientific studies have proved that vibration palate/ machine therapy promotes normal bone formation rate. The study was conducted by NASA.
In one study (published in the October 2001 issue of The FASEB Journal), only 10 minutes per day of vibration therapy promoted near-normal rates of bone formation in rats that were prevented from bearing weight on their hind limbs during the rest of the day. Another group of rats that had their hind legs suspended all day exhibited severely depressed bone formation rates — down by 92% — while rats that spent 10 minutes per day bearing weight, but without the vibration treatment, still had reduced bone formation — 61% less.
These results show that the vibration treatment maintained normal bone formation rates, while brief weight bearing did not.
