There are many different types of machines available and there is so much information on whole body vibration machines, that it can be a daunting challenge to sort out through all the information when trying to select the best machine for your needs.

People often ask us “which is the best machine?” That’s a very difficult question to answer. Just as there are many different kinds of automobiles available, there are also many different kinds of whole body vibration machines available. Is a Ferrari a better car than a Dodge minivan? If your only purpose is to get from point A to point B in as short a time as possible, then the Ferrari wins, hands down. But if you want a vehicle that can safely transport you, and your whole family on a camping trip, then maybe the Ferrari wouldn’t be the best choice.

Similarly, there are whole body vibration machines that excel in some areas and do not perform so admirably in other areas. The first step in choosing the "best" machine is to determine what your needs are. Some shoppers may only be looking for a machine to help them with their bone density needs and would not be well served by a machine that is designed to only help with weight loss goals.

Certain machines and specific motion types are better suited for specific purposes than other machine types. All of our machines have been classified into 3 different levels to help make your selection a little easier. Use the following chart to help you decide which machine is better suited for your particular needs:

Benefits Recommended Motion Machine Class
Weight Loss Oscillation, cross lateral, dynamic wave 1, 3
Strength Training Triplanar, spiral rotational 2, 3
Bone Density Triplanar, spiral rotational 2, 3
Balance Oscillation, cross lateral, dynamic wave 1, 3
Lymphatic drainage Oscillation, cross lateral, dynamic wave 1, 3
Improved circulation Triplanar, spiral rotational 2, 3
Motion style Characteristic of Motion Machine Class
Oscillation High amplitude, low speed in 1 plane 1, 3
Triplanar Low amplitude, fast speed in 3 planes 2
Spiral rotational Low amplitude, fast speeds in 2 planes 2, 3
Cross lateral High amplitude, low speed in 1 plane 1, 3
Dynamic wave High amplitude, low speed in 2 planes 1, 3

Typically speaking higher ranges of motion combined with lower speeds are very effective for weight loss, improved lymphatic drainage and balance issues. Conversely when the platform has fast motion combined with very low amplitude (range of motion) the effects are better suited for strength training, improved blood circulation and increasing bone density. No one motion type is great for all purposes, however, dual or multi-motion machines can be used for achieving many health goals, as they have multiple motion styles.

Once you have determined which motion type is best suited for your particular needs, the next step should be looking for specific items or features that may be beneficial for you or at least will make your use more comfortable and more enjoyable. The addition of certain creature comforts will make your time on the machine more comfortable and hopefully use it more often for more benefits.

Many new features are available on Vibra Pro machines that are designed to help you with your goals of improved health. Some of these features are placed on machines to reduce or remove unwanted side effects of the machines. All vibration machines can create non-harmonic vibrations, which have no beneficial effects, and may actually do more harm than good, so its important to choose a machine that has the features which can remove the non-harmonic vibrations.

Vibration dampening is the term given to components which can remove non-harmonic vibrations. They come in many different forms and have varying effectiveness for removing the harmful vibrations that are present in all vibration machines. Most other manufacturers do nothing to remove the non-harmonic vibrations, but at Vibra Pro we feel strongly about the need to do our best to make our machines the most effective and the safest that the industry has to offer and have included one or more vibration dampening systems in all of our newer whole body vibration machines. Some of the features you will find on our machines to counter the effects of non-harmonic vibration include the following:

  • One piece counterbalanced aircraft grade T6061 aluminum vibration dampener
  • Shock absorbing blue mat
  • Shock absorbing dimpled black PVC mat
  • Vibration dampening rubber isolation strips on columns
  • Internal motor mounts with built-in dampeners
  • Electronic cut off for stabilization at non-harmonic frequencies
  • Vibration dampening handlebars
  • Vibration dampening column mounting system

Another feature to look for in a whole body vibration machine is the motor size rating. Be wary of 2 and 3 and even 4 horsepower rated motors, as there is no such thing as a 4 HP motor that will plug into a standard electrical outlet without blowing the homes circuit breakers. Look for motor ratings in wattage as this is a very precise measurement that will tell you if you have enough power or not. More is better, as smaller sized motors have to work very hard and begin to show signs of overheating within a few months. Generally speaking, oscillating machines need smaller motors than triplanars and the majority of triplanar machines will use 2 motors, so even though the total motor size of triplanars is greater than oscillating motors their individual motor sizes will be about the same as oscillating machines. Some of the newer high tech electric motors like those found in the Genesis Elite can create great amounts of power and use very little energy. This is rare for vibration machines and the new Elite motor uses oversized rare earth magnets and oversized coils to achieve this.

Speed is another factor that must be taken into consideration when deciding on a whole body vibration machine. Oscillating machines are designed to be the most effective at relatively low speeds. The optimum range of speed for oscillating motion is between 4-28 Hertz (Hz.) Hertz is a measure of how many times the platform of the machines oscillated per second. So a machine with a speed of 20 Hz. will have its platform move up and down 20 times every second.

Triplanar machines generally move much faster than oscillating machines and will have speeds of between 25 to 60 Hz. Cross lateral motion is generally operated at the same speeds as oscillation, however, they tend to move much farther per oscillation. A level 1 oscillating machine will have around 10 – 11 mm of motion per cycle, where as the Genesis Elite has a cross lateral motion with 16 mm of movement, which makes it far more effective than a regular oscillating machine.

Dynamic wave motion is a very high ranging motion system which is the most effective of all 3 oscillation types of motion. Dynamic wave movement will operate at the same speeds as traditional oscillation motion for the most effectiveness.

Spiral rotational is very similar to triplanar motion, with similar speeds and similar amplitudes (range of motion) of approximately 2-3 mm. The big difference between spiral rotational and triplanar is that there is no vertical motion with spiral rotational. This is an important difference since the vertical motion portion of triplanar machines can cause joint and soft tissue damage at knees, hips and ankles.
