Improve:

¨Your strength and performance

¨Your balance and coordination

¨Your flexibility and agility

¨Your pain

No matter how young or old you are and irrespective of your level of fitness,
the TurboSonic offers individual exercise opportunities for everyone.
The whole body or a part of the body can be stimulated and trained.

The TurboSonic consists of a sonic vibrating platform that the user stands
on or performs exercises on which stimulate muscles in a manner that
promotes their rapid development.

The movement of the plate stimulates the body’s natural “stretch reflex”
which causes a spontaneous muscle contraction – the same protective
reflex experienced when you trip or miss a step.

Therefore, without thinking about it your body responds with a strong muscle contraction. These strong contractions are able to be repeated at a rapid rate.(This speed and intensity of contraction is not possible purely with a conscious contraction). This assists in achieving training or rehabilitation goals more effectively and efficiently.

Significant effects can be achieved with an exercise time of only 10 minutes, 3x per week for 4-8 weeks, depending on your condition, goals and mode settings.Therefore the TurboSonic is a very effective and time saving training device, which is less exhausting than most other forms of training. Energy In, Energy Out: When it comes to body weight, remember this: 1 pound = 3500 calories. For every pound you want to lose, you must burn 3500 calories worth of energy. The only way to do that is to move more.

With minimal effort you can achieve maximum effects!

Vibration Therapy is used in the medical field for the treatment and
prevention of a variety of illnesses, injuries, and adverse health conditions.

Revitalization, Rejuvenation and Recovery System:

Degenerative disease conditions, accelerated aging and all diminished capacities ultimately can be attributed to insufficient cellular stimulation. As the living cell struggles with poor nutrition, low oxygen levels, environmental toxins and stagnation of lymphatic fluids, disease conditions develop which accelerate aging and shorten life span. Solution – TurboSonic whole-body vibration therapy!

No matter how young or old you are and irrespective of your level of fitness or health, TurboSonic® offers individual therapeutic and exercise opportunities for most people.

Unfortunately some conditions are NOT suitable for the TurboSonic:


So far, clinical trials show vibration therapy and training to be generally safe. However, pregnant women, people with pace- makers, people with recent joint replacements, fractures, recently placed IUD's, metal pins or plates should consult with their doctor or a physical therapist prior to using the TurboSonic.

Very frail individuals and children should be accompanied by an adult when using the TurboSonic.

In case any of the following contra indications applies to you, we strongly advise to consult your physician or specialist prior to using the TurboSonic®.

Clinical Applications

Vibration Therapy is used in the medical field for the treatment and prevention of a variety of illnesses, injuries, and adverse health conditions.

Muscles

The effect of vibration results in what scientific literature calls 'Tonic Vibration Reflex' or 'TVR'. That is a repeated myotatic reflex or stretch reflex. This means that the vibrated muscle has to work very hard, while the subject or player using TurboSonic® does nothing other than balance on the platform. The effect per pulsation is like that of the knee jerk reflex. This muscle activity can be measured by use of electromyography (EMG). For example, in a one repetition maximum effort, the muscle(s) involved are activated 100% voluntarily. However with vibration training on TurboSonic® the muscles work at 200 to 300% of this IRM activation. This is an ideal way to train, especially when the muscle does not function properly, for example with weakened muscles in the elderly, or after injuries.

Hormones

Research shows that after vibration training (just one session!), there is a high excretion of Testosterone and Growth Hormone. There is also a drop in the stress hormone cortisol. This combination has favorable effects on muscle protein synthesis.
Effect of vibration training on Hormones:

  • Testosterone: + 7%
  • Human Growth Hormone: + 460%
  • Cortisol: - 32%
    (Source: Bosco et al 2000)

Increases in Testosterone and Growth Hormone are important in the functioning of both body and mind. Many complaints of the elderly can be traced to a decrease in these hormones. It is essentially these hormones, together with the female hormone estrogen, which are used to combat geriatric complaints so that it is possible to still enjoy life and vitality even when one has reached old age.

Bones

Bone decalcification (osteoporosis) is one of the biggest health problems especially in the elderly and women population. Many elderly people break their bones more easily when they fall because of bone decalcification; the hip is the most notorious in this respect. The onset of osteoporosis is partly due to a lack of movement, which causes muscles to gradually weaken, the circulation to diminish and the bones to be inadequately used. In addition, as a result of the ageing process, the body produces fewer hormones such as testosterone, estrogen and growth hormone. Yet it is exactly these hormones which play such an important role in the maintenance of strong bones.

The advice usually given to sufferers of this disease is to take more exercise, but that is difficult when muscles are weak, particularly in the legs. TurboSonic® offers a good alternative to vigorous impact exercise: through vibration the muscles automatically become stronger and regain their tone. The circulation improves because the blood vessels in the legs are wide open due to the vibration. At the same time, the pulsation gives a direct stimulus to bone tissue, which in turn stimulates the production of new bone tissue.

Scientific research shows that vibration training can help against osteoporosis. Recent findings show that even after only one vibration treatment, there is an increase in the hormone testosterone and growth hormone, which are so essential for strong bones.

Neurotransmitters

Parkinson's disease is an example of a deficiency in dopamine, which is the reason that L-Dopa is given as medicine. It is also recognized that serotonin plays a role in our mood, or frame of mind. A shortage of serotonin in the brain can lead to depression, which is the reason that Prozac is given as a medicine in order to increase the serotonin content in the brain. From research, it appears that vibration training also influences the neurotransmitters and the way in which they work. Vibration training increases the serotonin content in the brain, which could possibly explain why one feels so well after vibration training.

Blood Vessels

The effect of vibration training on the blood vessels is clear to see and to feel. After training, one often sees that the skin of the lower leg is colored pink. This is a sign that the blood vessels in that area are wide open. It also explains the feeling which many describe as: coming home after a snowball fight with your bare hands, and then putting your hands in a bucket of warm water. A tingling feeling which indicates that your blood vessels are wide open. In Germany, the effect of vibration training is used as therapy for a disturbed peripheral circulation, particularly in the lower legs, such as in chronic venous insufficiency.
Nervous System

The effect on the muscles is reflexively activated via the nervous system. With vibration training, it seems as if pulsations awaken the nerve tract, which could explain the positive effects of vibration training in partial paralysis. In fact, good results have been reported in the experimental treatment of, for example, MS patients.
Cartilage

It is already recognized that intermittent pressure stimulates optimal functioning of the cartilage. This cause the synovial fluid, or synovia, to be repeatedly pumped between the cartilage, just like a sponge which is constantly squeezed under water. This intermittent pressure maintains and improves cartilage function.

Emphysema

Ordinarily, patients with emphysema find it nearly impossible to undertake any kind of physical exercise. TurboSonic Vibration Therapy enables patients to achieve most of the benefits of a regular workout and helps them to do cardio-fitness training such as walking or even running.

MS / ALS

Patients with Multiple Sclerosis and Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis are unable to train because the nerves are no longer capable of controlling the muscles properly. TurboSonic Vibration activates the muscles directly without relying on the nervous system. Patients tend to feel better, have more energy to cope with everyday activities, experience less pain and are less dependent on others.

Osteoporosis

Millions of Americans, especially women, are at risk of developing this disease, which results from the decalcification of the bones due to hormonal imbalances. The bones become fragile with a tendency to break easily. TurboSonic Vibration Therapy increases bone density, usually reversing the effects of osteoporosis.

Arthritis and Rheumatism

TurboSonic Vibration Therapy can reduce the pain and discomfort of these conditions. It has been proven to increase blood circulation in the joints and dramatically improve flexibility and range of motion.

Lower Back PainTurboSonic Vibration Therapy can strengthen the weakened lower back muscles that cause back pain. (Patients with an acute back hernia should not use Vibration Therapy).

Pelvic Instability

This condition usually results from softening of the connective tissue during pregnancy. TurboSonic Vibration Therapy quickly brings the hormonal system into balance, enabling connective tissue to recover its strength and firmness.

Excess Body Fat

TurboSonic Vibration Therapy works several ways to dissolve excess body fat; it increases metabolism which burns calories more rapidly; increases blood circulation and lymphatic drainage thereby removing toxins faster. Human Growth Hormone secretion increases dramatically (460%). Excess body fat melts away effortlessly. People who use the TurboSonic Vibration Trainer for 10 minutes, three times a week, lose significantly more fat than those who engage in aerobic activity for one hour three times a week!

Cellulite

Those lumpy fatty deposits that form an unattractive dimpling effect around the thighs and other parts simply melt away under TurboSonic Vibration Therapy.

Stress

Modern life is stressful, causing the release of toxic stress hormones such as cortisol and epinephrine, which throw the immune system out of balance and destroy brain cells by the millions. Sonic Vibration Therapy increases human growth hormone and serotonin (the "happiness, relaxation and well-being hormone") secretion, lowers cortisol and epinephrine secretion 31%, and enhances circulation, all of which counteract the effects of stress on the body and spirit.

History

TurboSonic® is a sophisticated exercise and therapeutic wellness machine that uses patented sonic vibration technology based on decades of Russian research and development.

During the first extended periods of time Russian cosmonauts spent in space, it was observed they experienced bone and muscle tissue loss due to a lack of gravity. In an effort to stop or reverse these degenerative conditions, researchers were led to the whole body vibration (WBV) technology.

Since that first research decades ago, it has been well documented that vibration technology does in fact repair the bone and muscle tissue loss experienced by the cosmonauts. Of course, this discovery inevitably led the way for the whole body vibration concept to be applied to the fields of athletics, fitness and physical therapy.

The TurboSonic® is the latest “state of the art” vibration technology machine designed for physical therapy and all around physical performance enhancement. It was designed and developed by TS Korea and collaborated with Qigong (Chi Kung) Masters in Korea who were instrumental in helping develop the TurboSonic's 10 minute pre-programmed training sessions.

TurboSonic® is used widely throughout Korea and Japan especially by Qigong, Acupuncturist, Physical Therapists, Chiropractors, Orthopedics, Athletic Trainers and Senior Centers as well as by Olympic and top sport athletes and entertainers. Within the last year, its notoriety and popularity has spread into America through the distribution efforts of Vibration Health Solutions, Inc.

The Theory

Whole body vibration theory was originated from the concept of human body movement under earth’s gravity.

The movement of individual organs of human body is always influenced by earth’s gravity. Earth gravity works in vertical directions. Therefore it is natural and more effective for the human body to exercise in a vertical direction. Running vertically causes all the body organs such as brain, chest, abdomen and muscles to contract and relax repeatedly.

Up and down vertical movements stimulate the growth plates, improve blood vessel circulation, activate lymph system and help eliminate cellulite. Vertical movements also cause the muscle fibers to contract and relax repeatedly enhancing muscle strength.

Because of easiness in operation, the TurboSonic® can be used by anyone regardless of age or sex. In particular, athletes, overweight people who experience difficulty exercising over extended periods of time, office workers with inadequate levels of physical activity, people who cannot find the time to exercise, and patients requiring rehabilitative therapy stand to benefit most from this novel comprehensive exercise system.
