The concept of Whole Body Vibration was developed for the Russian Cosmonauts in an effort to combat muscle atrophy, bone density loss, and blood clotting during extended periods of exposure to zero gravity. Decades of research and endorsements indicate that this innovative machine produces effective results. The motion of the vibration platform causes the brain to tell the muscles to actively contract to maintain equilibrium. Scientists first discovered the positive effects vibration technology had on strengthening muscles, increasing flexibility, and improving bone density, then later discovered that vibration therapy provided significant benefits in a variety of other areas as well.
The Noblerex K-1 Platinum Whole Body Vibration Machine provides isometric anaerobic exercise through the use of whole body vibration. The Noblerex K-1 Platinum improves upon this vibration by utilizing the Triangular Oscillating System (T.O.S.). The Triangular Oscillating System provides a gentle rocking motion rather than just up and down movement as a way of reducing the impact on joints and ligaments. There is a substantial difference between T.O.S. and "piston" or "tri-planar" vibration used by many other vibration machines that can cause stress to those areas. The T.O.S. utilized by the K-1 Platinum generates systematic involuntary muscle contraction with less G force than the piston driven tri-planar systems, designed to cause less stress on the joints and ligaments. This pleasant rocking motion causes the brain to tell the muscles of your body to actively contract to maintain equilibrium, thus creating a therapeutic and muscle toning workout. This unique Triangular Oscillating System provides all the benefits of whole body vibration with minimal risk of damage to the body, making it a safe and efficient source of exercise, wellness, and therapy.
A remote control comes with the Noblerex K-1 Platinum for ease of use personally or with trainer assistance. There are three auto settings - for beginning, intermediate and advanced users - along with ten manual settings for more specific intensity adjustment. Hand straps also come with the machine for additional upper body workout options. The Noblerex K-1 Platinum Whole Body Vibration Exercise Machine is commercially rated and can be used for extended periods of time in clinical or health club type settings, yet it is compact enough to be used at home.

Vibration exercise is an excellent alternative to traditional exercise with benefits including increased muscle mass, improved circulation, flexibility, range of motion, balance, and mobility.
Lose weight more effectively by increasing lean muscle mass. Studies show that increasing lean muscle mass makes the body more fuel efficient by burning more calories throughout the entire day; not just during a workout. The more calories the body is able to burn, the higher the potential is for dramatic weight loss.
With whole body vibration, hundreds of muscle contractions per minute create an invigorating workout designed to increase lean muscle mass and firm muscles to create an overall effect of a more toned, firm, and healthy body. Using the Noblerex K-1 Platinum Whole Body Vibration Exercise to tone muscles and increase lymphatic drainage may help fight off cellulite, while the improved circulation induced during vibration therapy may be able to tighten the skin.
“During my amazing weight loss, my body became more toned and
thanks to the Noblerex K-1, even my skin firmed up!”
The imbalance placed on the user, caused by the gentle rocking vibration of the TOS, is designed to increase flexibility, range of motion, balance, and mobility.
Whole body vibration exercise was originally designed by one of the world’s leading space programs to increase bone density. There have been worldwide scientific studies of whole body vibration systems that indicate high success rates in treating osteoporosis. The increase in bone mineral density while using the Noblerex K-1 Platinum is a viable solution to prevent further bone loss and to help combat osteoporosis.
“Vibration exercise is a type of exercise that has recently been developed for the prevention and treatment of osteoporosis. It elicits neuromuscular training reflectorily, without much effort and in short periods. ...(vibration exercise) has been reported as a successful countermeasure against loss of bone mineral (Flieger et al., 1998).” J. Rittweger et al. 1999
An increase in circulation and lymphatic drainage may help to cleanse toxic buildup from the body and increase oxygenation in the blood. The multiple muscle contractions per second create an increase in blood circulation, and movement in the lymph system. Increased circulation, lymphatic drainage, and increased muscle strength may reduce pain and stiffness and alleviate symptoms of fibromyalgia, arthritis, and other pain.
“I've had poor circulation in my lower legs & feet and that condition has
definitely improved with the use of the Noblerex K-1”

Whole body vibration has been known to help facilitate natural hormones and nerve delivery substances, showing an increase in serotonin while decreasing cortisol, a hormone produced by stress. Elevated serotonin helps to create a feeling of wellbeing, while the decrease in cortisol may reduce "belly fat" caused by stress.
"Using the K1 on a regular basis raises my serotonin levels ...
it curbs my cravings for sugar and chocolate and inspires me to eat healthier!"

Neuromuscular re-education is possible in applicable situations, such as with MS, CP, or after a stroke. Seeking advice from a physician familiar with whole body vibration exercise therapy is recommended.

Elevated levels of HGH have been indicated with the use of vibration therapy. These elevated levels have been shown to help the body heal and repair after injury or surgery. The Noblerex K-1 Platinum may also help in treating athletic injuries, as well as providing a sports massage effect, due to the hormone secretion ratio that is involved with growth and recovery.
