What is Sonix WBV?
It is important to first understand Whole Body Vibration (WBV) in general. WBV allows the user to stand, sit or lie on a machine with a vibrating platform. As the machine vibrates, it transmits energy to the body, forcing muscles to contract and relax dozens of times each second. Varying frequencies/amplitudes/forces are transferred into specific body parts. There is an involuntary muscular response to vibration; the muscle contracts and relaxes at the same rate as the Hz set on the WBV unit. Specific WBV frequencies make muscles contract more often and to a greater degree. For example, if the unit is set to 30Hz for 30 seconds, the muscle will contract and relax 900 times.
How Does Sonix WBV Work?
Sonix Whole-Body Vibration (SWBV) employs a speaker system with magnetic circuits (PEMF), rather than just a vibration spin motor. SWBV is positioned in a natural vertical plane of motion, has fully adjustable intensity, and employs a true sine wave directional change. This combination results in a greatly enhanced and more efficient vibrational exercise experience. Mechanical WBV simply cannot function at the level that SWBV does. Only Sonix Whole Body Vibration is sound actuated, offers the optional frequency range from 3-50 Hz in one step increments, can adjust amplitude from 0 to max (22mm) and emits a coherent
Benefits of Sonix WBV
The benefits of Sonix WBV are numerous… the reason for this is because Sonix WBV stimulation affects not only your musculature but also your internal organs and glands, including your brain.
Your muscle spindles fire secondary to the mechanical stimulation produced by the vibrating plate, and this rapid firing of the muscle spindles
Sonix WBV FAQs
Q. What are the Contraindications & Effects of the Sonix Whole Body Vibration?
Serious cardiovascular disease
Recent wounds from an operation or surgery
Recent Hip and knee implants
Acute hernia, discopathy, spondylolysis
Recently placed IUDs, metal pins, or plates
Research is still being conducted on the effects of vibration on certain medical conditions. Very frail individuals and children should consult their physician and be accompanied by an adult when using the Sonix.
Children using SWBV -. With young children, it is advisable to restrict use to under 3-4 min at a 50% or less amplitude. This would include the low intensity setting, or in the Manual mode at low frequency.
