Flabelos FAQ

1. What is Vibration Exercise?

Vibration exercise is a Proven Science. The machine produces a vibration through which energy is transferred to the body. This mechanical stimulus produces a stretch reflex which, depending on the frequency, results in rapid and intense muscle contractions 30-50 times per second. Vibration training offers a host of benefits such as considerably improving muscle strength, flexibility, range of motion and bone density.

2. What are the benefits?

Weigh up the benefits here for yourself: – Increases Fat Burning – Improves Training Quality and Effectiveness – Improves Flexibility, Mobility & Coordination – Reduces Stress on Joints – Restores hormonal balance and increases HGH growth hormone as well as testosterone levels in men – Speeds up Metabolism – Helps Reduce Stress – Revitalizes – Balances Mind & Body – Helps Improve Skin Quality

3. Can I lose weight with Flabelos?

Absolutely. The special plate shakes the body, causing a feeling of imbalance in the inner ear. This causes the brain to send signals to the muscles to try to correct it, and they contract and uncontract rapidly to do this. This pulsating helps to speed up the blood circulation through the capillaries, bringing a feeling of heat especially in the areas which need “trimming”. This improved circulation starts to break down toxins and takes fat with it into the urine. Customers who use Flabélos often find they need to go to the loo soon afterwards.

4. Is vibration training something new?

No. Vibration training is backed by over 40 years of research. The technology was originally designed to treat bone and lean muscle mass loss in cosmonauts who had spent considerable time in a weightless environment in space, in addition to enhancing power and strength and accelerating recovery in Russian Olympic athletes. Eventually, the technology was introduced to Europe in the early 1990’s, where further research was done to validate its effects. Due to its many benefits, the technology has quickly gained acceptance and is now utilized by universities, professional sports teams, and health professionals in the rehabilitation and medical fields.

5. How much power does a Flabelos machine use?

The Flabelos has a 500w power consumption which means that it only costs a few pence to operate per session making it a very cost effective unit.

6. Is vibration training safe?

Yes. The Flabelos machine utilizes a very specific frequency range and pivotal motion that is proven in research to be safe and effective.

7. Is there research behind this technology?

Vibration training has 40 years of research behind its science. With any technology, the individual needs to take a critical look at the research and validity behind it. Whole Body Vibration has been featured in such prestigious and influential peer reviewed journals such as ‘Spine‘, ‘Journal of Bone and Mineral Density‘, and ‘Medicine & Science in Sports & Exercise‘. With its potential applications, new research is constantly being initiated across numerous North American and European Universities. There are currently over 800 research reports that are available to view.

8. It the Flabelos machine easy to use?

Yes! Our machines have been designed to be very “User Friendly”. Easy to use controls and pre- programmed time and intensity levels make our machines incredibly easy to use.

9. What is the science behind the Flabelos machine?

The Stretch Reflex: The movement of the vibration plate simulates the body’s natural ‘stretch reflex’ (Tonic Vibration Reflex). Without thinking about it, your body responds with a strong involuntary muscle contraction. With the Flabelos, these strong muscle contractions can be repeated at a rapid rate. At a frequency of 20 to 50 times a second, our machines can produce up to 3000 contractions in 1 minute!

Nearly 100% Muscle Recruitment: Due to its involuntary effect on muscle contraction, nearly 100% of the muscle fibres are recruited. Compare this to conventional training where there is only on average 40% muscle recruitment. This benefits the rehabilitation patient looking to add stability and strength to all muscles around their joints, to the athlete looking to maximize strength gains.

10. What is the age limit to Whole Body Vibration training?

There is no upper age limit to vibration exercise. Vibration exercise has many benefits for the elderly population, including positive effects on bone density and increase in strength, balance and flexibility. All this is accomplished with less stress on the joints, tendons and ligaments than conventional exercise.

11. Can this machine be used for older people?

Yes! Flabelos is very low impact. You’ll feel benefits with just 2 minutes a day and build from there. If you’re not comfortable standing up you can still benefit by sitting in a chair and putting your legs on the machine. This is especially good for people who need to take exercise very easy.

12. What is the youngest age for vibration training?

We recommend following general guidelines on resistance training for adolescents. Taking this into consideration, we recommend an age limit of 12. However, there should always be supervision by a qualified individual. Any age less than 12 requires approval from a physician prior to any exercise.
