Whole body vibration has been in the public eye for a few years now, but the endocrine society released a new study that suggests there are significant benefits to bone health.  A less strenuous form of exercise known as whole-body vibration (WBV) can mimic the muscle and bone health benefits of regular exercise in mice, according to a new study. WBV consists of a person sitting, standing or lying on a machine with a vibrating platform. When the machine vibrates, it transmits energy to the body, and muscles contract and relax multiple times during each second.

Whole Body Vibration consists of a person standing or sitting or even lying on a machine with a vibrating platform, when the machine vibrates, it transmits energy to the body and muscles contract and relax many times per second. 

According to author of the study, Meghan E. McGee-Lawrence, Ph.D. or Augusta University in Augusta, Ga., "Our study is the first to show that whole-body vibration may be just as effective as exercise at combatting some of the negative consequences of obesity and diabetes."

In the study groups of mice began a 12-week exercise program, the genetically obese and diabetic mice showed similar metabolic benefits from both the WBV and walking on the treadmill for 45 minutes daily.  The WBV proved to enhance muscle mass and insult sensitivity.
