Whole Body Vibration Therapy is a natural and straightforward, non-invasive therapy. Based on the long-established, and highly regarded, principles originally developed by NASA vibration therapy was initially designed to help astronauts maintain muscle tone and bone density in space
Vibration therapy works by creating instability within the body with each vibration resulting in reflexive actions within every muscle. This results in a whole body workout, with minimal impact on the joints, and increased blood circulation.
The vertical vibrations used imitate the gentle concussions seen in natural movement. These ‘concussions’ work at 30-50 repetitions per second. Vibrations are gentle enough to soothe but are strong enough to reach the whole body. This helps to activate the cardiovascular, pulmonary and bio mechanical systems.

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY
My Vitafloor is an intrinsic part of our training and fitness programme. All the horses on the yard use it every week throughout the year; this includes the hunters, eventers and my children's ponies. I feel the floor improves muscle stability and tone. It is a vital piece of equipment for Team Taylor and I would not be without it.
The Vitafloor® is a great addition for our competition horses. It really helps to keep them in top shape, sound and healthy!
We use Vitafloor® every day and it helps our horses to recover after tough training.
The Vitafloor® is very user-friendly and practical in design. Since using it, my horses are fitter and more relaxed with improved musculature. It also helps prevent tying-up. …our family-owned racehorse ‘Mikado’ has shown great improvement using Vitafloor®.
Peas & Carrots became racehorse of the year twice in Sweden with help from our Vitafloor®!
We use the Vitafloor® on all our trotters and it makes them stronger and smoother.
I can definitely feel the lack of strength, flexibility and especial lack of muscle mass that Henry is displaying this year compared to last year when he was on a Vitafloor each day.
