Powervibe Zen Pro

Leading Experts in the Wole Body Vibration Industry

The science behind Whole Body Vibration (WBV) has been around for over 40 years, and the effects of WBV are remarkable. PowerVibe Zen Pro utilizes vertical vibration to provide the right machine for the right results.

For post menopausal woman, and people suffering from osteoporosis, PowerVibe has shown to help increase bone density. Zen Pro will also help people with poor flexibility and helps improve circulation.  Whole Body Vibration helps reduce the appearance of cellulite and varicose veins.

WBV as a fitness routine helps improve muscle strength by contracting the muscles 20 to 50 times per second, which in turn will also give postitive cardio effects. For people with injuries, WBV will
enhance rehabilitation by increasing blood flow and oxygenation throughout the body.

Whole Body Vibration Therapy in conjunction with a healthy diet will aid in accelerating weight loss and leads to increases in energy, improves relaxation, enhances wellness and enhances detoxification

History of WBV

The origins of Whole Body Vibration technology can be traced back to the Swedish gymnast, physician, and inventor Gustav Zander (1835-1920) and Dr. John Harvey Kellogg (1852-1943).

The Germans picked up on the health and wellness benefits that vibration technology offered in the 1960's by developing an exercise technique called rhythmic neuromuscular stimulation.

Then the Russians moved vibration technology forward for good in the 1960's. The space race between the Russians from Eastern Europe and the United States from the west fueled research and development of all kinds of new products. The Soviets quickly realized that being exposed to zero gravity conditions in outer space caused severe deterioration of bone mineral density and muscle tissue. The concept of humans living with the constant force of Earth's gravity is where the theory behind WBV originated.

The Russian space program used Whole Body Vibration as a way to simulate weight bearing loads for their cosmonauts while training and rehabbing before, during, and after trips in outer space.

Introducing WBV in zero gravity conditions is something that worked to simulate the forces of gravity when there isn't any. Cosmonauts (and now NASA) used WBV machines to maintain bone mineral density and muscle strength. Instead of being too weak to walk upon returning from orbit, the Russian cosmonauts were returning from space in almost the same condition as when they left.

Ever wonder why the Russians were so dominant in the Olympics during the 1980's. You guessed it...their athletes were using WBV regularly in training and rehabilitation programs.

German Universities continued their own research on the effects of WBV. Many studies were done on a variety of effects on the body, such as WBV and Osteoporosis, developing muscle mass, improving balance and circulation, rehabilitation for injuries, weight loss, and the like.

  • An Apple a Day . . .

    What is so good about an apple? Is it the color, ranging from ruby red to pale pink? Is it the crunch? The sweetness? Or is it, instead, a combination of all of these qualities, plus the natural goodness derived from the apple's secret ingredients — phytonutrients? If this were a multiple choice quiz, the answer would be "all of the above". Importantly, in addition to possessing numerous appealing physical qualities, apples contain an abundance of health-promoting biochemicals known as phytonutrients.1,2 These specific organic molecules are derived not only from apples but many other fresh fruits and vegetables, and help power the immune system, protect against cancer, maintain healthy eyes, and assist cells in clearing out metabolic waste products such as free radicals. ...
